Tommies let one slip away against Dalhousie

This afternoon in Halifax, the Dalhousie Tigers stormed back in the third period with 4 goals to defeat STU 4 to 3.

Playing their first game since late November the Tommies came out ready in the first period scoring 2 goals in the opening frame.  Dani Miller (Blackmore) opened the scoring at 2:33 and Jordan Miller (D. Miller) scored on a 2 on 1 at 17:38.

The second period was scoreless and STU was looking good heading into the third.  DAL out shot STU 20 - 15 over two periods.

The Tigers scored two goals in the third to tie half way through the period.  Eric MacIsaac (Brewster) restored STU's advantage on the powerplay at 11:56 but Dalhousie roared back with two goals in 44 seconds shortly after and held on for the 4 to 3 victory.  Final shots were 27 to 22 in favor of the Tigers.

Newcomer Chelsea Fiander made her St. Thomas debut today and had three shots on goal.  Julia Shaurn was tagged for the loss in net.

With the win the Tigers leap frog STU for 5th place and sit one point up on the Tommies.  The Tommies have a game in hand as DAL played yesterday and lost to Moncton in OT.
