Tommies invade Nova Scotia this weekend

After a month break in university hockey action both our men's and women's teams gear up for regular season games this weekend against Nova Scotia opponents.

The men start on Friday night against last place Dalhousie.  CAUTION, Don't let their 2-11-1 record fool you.  The Tigers are coming off a first half that saw them win two games, both against STU.  Injuries took there toll on DAL in the first half but their injured players have returned to action after the Christmas break.  Not to mention that Dalhousie also saw a coaching change over the holidays and they are going to come out looking to impress.  The Tommies will be in tough.  The game starts at 7 PM and the webcast can be found HERE.

Saturday night St. Thomas heads north to take on 4th place Acadia. Any game at Acadia Arena is a tough one on the olympic size ice and this will be STU's 4th game (1 regular season, 2 exhibition) there this year without any success yet.  We need the points to stay in the playoff picture so a big game is a must.  The game starts at 7 PM and you can find the webcast HERE.

The Lady Tommies are in a similar circumstance to the men, they are being chased by Tigers.  STU sits two points up on Dalhousie for 5th position in the AUS and face them Sunday afternoon at 2 PM.  The game will be streamed live HERE

The Tommies have added forward Chelsea Fiander to the forward ranks for the second half.  A native of Regina, SK Chelsea had 6 goals and 6 assists in 28 games for the Prince Albert A&W Bears last season.  She was a team mate of current Tommie Danielle Miller.  Good luck Chelsea and welcome to STU!
