SMU downs Tommies in O/T

After an exciting win last night in Moncton the Tommies had to face another tough challenge this afternoon in Halifax against the 2nd place SMU Huskies. Saint Mary's was first on the board off a deflection from the point that eluded Julia Sharun but Caroline Hammerheim scored on the PP from Lucrece Nussbaum to tie the game. Shots favoured STU in the period 11 - 9.

No scoring in the second frame with STU out shooting SMU 10 - 7.

With the Tommies still suffering from a short bench and some penalty trouble, the Huskies out shot them badly in the third. Courtney Fox led a rush into the SMU zone, fed Amy Kelbaugh, who promptly passed to a streaking Lyse Rossignol who made no mistake for a 2 to 1 Tommies lead. It was short lived as the Huskies got a 2 on 1 three minutes later and converted to tie the game and force overtime.

SMU got breaks in OT with power plays but could not convert but with 10 seconds left SMU banked a puck off the side of the net that went right to a player in front and they put it just inside the post for the 3 to 2 win. Nevertheless, the Tommies secure 3 points on the weekend. Next game for St. Thomas is next Saturday afternoon against Mt. Allison.
