Tommies lose close one to Moncton

In the Tommies final tune-up before the 2nd half gets underway STU dropped a 3-2 decision against U de M in exhibition play at the LBR.

Moncton jumped out to a 2 - 0 first period lead and out shot the home side by a whopping 18 - 3 margin.  It certainly appeared that St. Thomas was working out the holiday turkey legs in the early going.

The Tommies roared back in the 2nd to tie the game on a PP goal by Steve Sanza (Main) and a beauty deflection by Chris Morehouse (Sanza).  The shots were even at 7 apiece. 

Moncton scored the winner at 1:28 of the 3rd on the PP.  The Tommies came close to tying the game with just over 2 minutes to play as Andrew Andricopoulos rang one off the bar but it wasn't meant to be on this night.  Charles Lavigne played two periods facing 25 shots while Justin Collier faced 13 shots in the 3rd.

The regular season gets underway on Friday night in Halifax against Dalhousie.  A webcast for the game will be available and we'll have that for you on Friday.
