Tommies finish 2nd at Moncton tournament

It wasn't the result the Tommies were looking for this afternoon against Moncton but it is the one they will have to take. STU lost 6 to 1 against U de M in the championship game of Moncton Invitational Tournament.

The Tommies were shell shocked in the first period getting out shot 20 - 2 but survived it well going into the second frame tied at zeros.

Moncton rattled off 3 goals in the middle stanza, including an early powerplay marker and a shorty. The Tommies had the better of the period shots but couldn't get one by the U de M goalie.

Dani Miller scored STU's lone goal early in the third period from Kayla Blackmore but this was it for the Tommies. Les Aigles would score 3 more times to cement the win. Final shots on goal were 35 to 31 for U de M. Dani Miller was STU's player of the game.

With second place at the tournament wrapped up, two Tommies took home All-Star honours. Amanda Burns on defense and Kayla Blackmore up front earned 2 of the 6 All-Star positions.

That ends the Ladies' pre-season games. Their next action will be regular season against Mt. Allison on Saturday, October 15th at the LBR.
