Tommies come from behind to down Tigers

With fifth place on the line tonight at the LBR, the Lady Tommies came back from a 2 - 0 first period deficit to win 4 - 3.  Captain Kayla Blackmore had four points and was named player of the game.

The Tigers scored at 11:18 and 17:05 of the first to take the early lead.  Katie Brewster (Blackmore, D. Miller) scored with 47 seconds left in the period to trim the margin. STU led in shots 10 - 9.

Kayla Blackmore would score a beauty breakaway goal at 2:50 of the second period on a perfect break out pass from Courtney Fox.  Dalhousie would regain the lead on an easy tap in at 11:03.  The Tigers would hold on and take the 3 - 2 advantage to the third period.  Shots were 14 - 4 for STU.

With the Tommies holding the edge in play, it only took until the 3:35 mark before Dani Miller (Blackmore) tied the game.  The game winning goal saw Blackmore race down the right wing and snap the  winner past Brittany McMacken on the short side.  The Tommies would hold on for the victory but in the final few seconds of the game, with the extra attacker on for Dal, the Tigers slid one just past the post.  Final shots were 32 to 28 for the Tommies.

The win puts St. Thomas two points up on the Tigers and in 4th spot in the AUS.  The Tommies are home tomorrow afternoon at 2 PM against U de M.
