Tommies rebound versus Mounties

After a tough loss yesterday afternoon against Moncton, the Tommies scored one goal each period and glided to a convincing 3 - 0 shutout win versus Mount Allison. Julia Sharun picked up the win facing 17 shots and was sharp when she had to be.

The first period was rather uneventful until 17:53 when Lyse Rossignol fished a loose puck behind the Mounties net and found a wide open Charity Walls for the games first goal. Amy Kelbaugh picked up the other assist. Shots after one period were 7 to 7.

Mount Allison seemed to spend most of the second frame in the penalty box but it only took until the 2:59 mark of the period for the Tommies to capitalize on the PP. Lucrese Nussbaum wristed one top shelf from Kathleen Boyle and Caroline Hammerhiem for the 2 - 0 lead. STU would come close several more times but Meagan Corley-Byrne stood her ground in the Mt. A net facing 14 shots in the period. The Mounties fired 7 the other way.

Rookie Katelyn Brewster would close out the scoring on the powerplay at 2:32 of the third with assists to Jillian Coughlin and Amy Kelbaugh, her second point of the night. The Tommies thoroughly out played Mt A in the final period outshooting them 9 to 3 for a game total of 30 to 17. Sharun records STU's first shut out of the season. Amy Kelbaugh, who seemed to be flying all evening and with 2 points, was the Tommies player of the game.

With the win St. Thomas leap frogs Saint Mary's for fourth in the AUS standings, 1 point behind Dalhousie for third heading into the Christmas break. Daily Gleaner: Tommies rebound in AUS women's


  1. Ladies played super well today. Sharun made the big saves she needed to and Brewster, Hammerheim and Lyse played well up the middle. Good to go into the break on a high.

  2. Does anyone else have trouble seeing the links on this site?

    They are very light and not easy to see on safari.

  3. We've been aware of the issue, but not being CSS/HTML experts, finally figured how to make the links appear bold. Hope that makes things easier to view.
