Tigers snap Tommies win streak

It certainly wasn't the ending to the weekend the Tommies were looking for but regardless of today's outcome - a 3 to 2 loss vs. Dalhousie - the Ladies can hold their heads high with two big wins over the top teams in the conference in the past four games.

This afternoon it was the Tigers who struck first on the powerplay 7:27 into the game.  St. Thomas responded 5 minutes later at 13:21 when Kayla Blackmore (Fox, MacDonald) raced out on a break away and made a great move and tied the game at 1's.  The period ended with STU leading in shots 12 - 11.

The Tommies played a good second period and capitalized early when Jordan Miller (D. Miller, MacDonald) went top shelf at 3:22.  Dalhousie had few quality chances but their sniper Jocelyn LeBlanc scored two goals in a minute and thirty second span on STU defensive miscues.  The period ended with the score 3 to 2 and shots even at four apiece.

In the third period the Tommies had several chances but couldn't convert for the tying goal.  Kristin Wolfe took the tough luck loss facing 21 shots, while STU fired back with 23.

The Lady Tommies will be back in action next weekend on the road against Mount Allison and UPEI, both teams they are jockeying with in the standing.  There is no broadcast available for UPEI on Sunday but Mount Allison has a radio broadcast (surprise, surprise) HERE and I will post the link again this weekend on Facebook and Twitter.
