Tommies hand Moncton second loss of season

Finally, the Tommies got some revenge on first place Moncton defeating Les Aigles 3 - 2 in overtime this afternoon at the JLL arena.  Katie Brewster was the heroine scoring the tying and winning goals for STU.

U de M scored the first goal in the opening frame but STU tied it up before the period ended.  Courtney Fox (McTaggart) tallied her second of the season at 16:11.  Shots favored St. Thomas 11 to 9.

Moncton would retake the lead at 2:40 of the second period.  It turned out to be the only goal of the period as STU out shot U de M 8 to 7.

You could tell the Tommies really wanted this game and pressed hard in the third.  Danielle Miller was denied when she found the puck all alone in front of Moncton's goalie Kathy Desjardins with under 7 minutes to play.  Katie Brewster (McTaggart, MacIsaac) scored the tying goal at 15:42 to eventually force overtime.  Shots were 6 to 5 for St. Thomas.

The overtime lasted until 7:56 when Katie Brewster (P. MacDonald, McTaggart) got the puck by the right faceoff dot, forced her way to the net and jammed the winning goal home.  Kristin Wolfe picks up her first victory of the season.  The win sees the Tommies regain 5th spot and now sit 3 points behind UPEI for 4th.  STU plays the Panthers tomorrow afternoon at the LBR.
