X comes back to defeat Tommies

The Tommies hung tight with the X-Women this afternoon at the LBR but couldn't salvage any points from the effort. With a late empty net goal by Marilynn Hay, St.-FX took the game 3 to 1.

It was the Tommies who struck first on the powerplay at 12:16 of the first. Amy Kelbaugh, from the side of the net, banked the puck off of Katie Harvieux and into the net, 11 seconds after Jenna Downey took a hooking penalty. Caroline Hammerhiem and Lyse Rossignol picked up the assists.

The one goal lead would stick until late in the second period when Abygail Laking tied the score on the PP at 19:39. Jessica Shanahan would score the winner at 8:26 of the third, firing a high shot past a helpless Julia Sharun. The Tommies battled hard against the 1st place X-Women but the goal that was needed could not be found.

STU was out shot 32 - 16 with Sharun standing tall in the Tommies net time and time again. You can tell that St.-FX does not take St. Thomas lightly and came ready to play today. The Ladies stay 2 points up on Dalhousie, who lost to Moncton 6 to 1. The Tigers will be at the LBR tomorrow afternoon at 3 PM to take on the Tommies.
