Tommies nip Mounties

The score was a tad closer than the Tommies would have liked but the end result is all that matters. STU out shot MT. Allison 40 - 19 and scored a 3 to 2 win to improve their record to 4-3-1 for 9 points and 5th place.

The Mounties played even with the Tommies for the first few minutes of the game but STU pulled ahead shorthanded when strong fore checking payed off. Lyse Rossignol stole the puck off a defenders stick just inside Mt A's blueline, skated in alone and made no mistake on the breakaway for a 1-0 Tommies lead at 13:39. STU dominated the shot clock 11 to 4.

The Mounties would counter at 2:53 of the second when Jillan Greene stole the puck off our D and tucked it past Julia Sharun. The tie lasted until the 7:52 mark of the period when Kelly Matthews scored on a goal mouth scrum from Fischer and Holt. The goal was scored on the PP with the Tommies up two women.

The Tommies thoroughly out played the Mounties in the third but it wasn't until Amy Kelbaugh scored at 14:26 from Nussbaum and Rossignol that STU got the eventual winning goal. Mt. A would reply 39 seconds later to keep things close but they were unable to mount any other great pressure.

With a goal and an assist, Lyse Rossignol was named Tommies player of the game. Julia Sharun got the win in net stopping 17 shots. Next up for STU is UPEI tomorrow afternoon at 2 PM at the LBR.
