Moncton upends STU

The Tommies head to the Christmas break with 9 points and 5th position after they dropped their final game of the first half 7 - 3 to U de M.  Kayla Blackmore continued her strong weekend with 2 more goals after a 4 point game against Dalhousie on Saturday.

The Tommies came out hard on Sunday afternoon and dominated Moncton early on, out shooting Les Aigles 10 - 1 in the first eleven minutes of the game.  Cassidy McTaggart (Fox, Critch) would get STU on the board first at 2:24 when she banged home a Courtney Fox pass from the side of the net.  U de M's first shot was their first goal at 5:59 on the PP but Kayla Blackmore (Burns, Scott) scored on a breakaway at 7:34 to retake the lead.  Unfortunately it wouldn't last, as Moncton would score 3 more times in the last 4 minutes of the period.  Shots were 12 to 10 for STU in the first.

U de M would chase starting goaltender Julia Sharun in the second period, scoring 2 goals in the first 3:30 of the period for a 6 to 2 lead.  Kristen Wolfe would come in and only allow one goal at 4:47 of the third period before Kayla Blackmore, with her second of the game, scored at 7:53.  Final shots on goal were 36 to 27 in favor of St. Thomas.  Daily Gleaner: Blackmore solid but STU settles for split
