Tommies fall twice in OT

Both St. Thomas teams were overtime losers in AUS exhibition play today. In Moncton, the Lady Tommies dropped a 5-4 decision to Saint Mary's, despite outshooting the Huskies 58-27. Kayla Blackmore scored a pair of goals, with singles from Renata Mastna and Courtney Fox. Katie Brewster chipped in 3 assists. STU went 3-for-9 on the powerplay.

At the LBR, the Men were 4-3 losers to visiting UQTR. Brad Gallant, Randy Cameron and Yuri Cheremetiev were the goal scorers for the Tommies, who were outshot 36-33.
Daily Gleaner: Narrow loss for Tommies

The Lady Tommies are back in action at the UdeM preseason tournament tomorrow, against a still to be announced opponent. The Men will travel to Summerside on Friday night to face UPEI.

    The 3rd exhibition tilt vs top 10 schools of last year resulted in another level of accomplishment this Exhibition hockey season.
    Coach Ryan et al seems to be getting maximum effort from the team and no doubt seeing a rounding into form for 2011/12 AUS season.

    I have had to discern this from Twitter notes, Gleaner reports and FRIENDS who send me optimistic reports.

    I continue to believe that there will be a better TOMMIES product on the ice this season and an all round closer AUS season-


  2. An admiral job by the new coaches in re-tooling and re-focusing the on ice product, SO FAR SO GOOD ! but what is needed is MORE SKILLED players who when opportunity presents fills the net.
    Kudos to all the hard working guys who will win more games than they lose as they have demonstrated progress so far.
    A Dulle,a Bowers, players of that quality will be required in order to rise above the lower 4 of the AUS.
