Blackmore keys win over Tigers

The St. Thomas Tommies firmed up their hold on third place in the AUS with a decisive 5 to 1 win over the Dalhousie Tigers this afternoon at the LBR. Kayla Blackmore scored 3 times and added an assist to pace STU.

STU got rolling midway through the first period when Katie Brewster scored on the PP at 11:42. Dominique Bernier and the ever present Blackmore drew assists. Less than a minute later Lucrece Nussbaum stormed down the left wing boards and fired a perfect pass to a wide open Kelly Matthews, who promptly deposited the puck top shelf past a helpless Ashley Boutilier in the Dalhousie net. Aided by 8 shots on the PP the Tigers out shot STU 13 to 6 in the period.

Kayla Blackmore, who was all over the puck on this day, scored at 8:18 of the second period for her first of the day from Charity Walls. STU had several other near misses including 2 missed break away attempts by Blackmore. Shots were 11 to 11 in the middle frame.

The final period saw Kayla score her second goal - on her fourth breakaway of the afternoon - at 14:15. Dalhousie's Monica Neal broke Kristin Wolfe's shut out bid at 15:53 on the PP but Blackmore replied 24 seconds later to break the Tigers back.

Kristin Wolfe played a phenomenal game stopping 30 of 31 Dalhousie shots. The Tommies fired 25 the other way. With the win the Tommies pull 4 points ahead of Dal. in the standings. Next game for the Ladies is Friday night in Halifax against SMU. Daily Gleaner - Tommies on the rebound


  1. congratsto the ladies,at least stu can have a winning team.completely off topic,whivh young and dedicated young guy sits for danton.

  2. Danton is just as dedicated. That's not a fair accusation.

    PS: Danton scored SMU's only goal in a 4-1 loss to Acadia tonight.

  3. Technically Danton was taking Kyle Doucet's spot, who is really nobody had to "sit out" because of Danton. Good to see Danton score a goal, hopefully the media circus will soon subside.
