Tommies roll past Mounties

Dear St. Thomas Tommies women's hockey team; Its not the way you rock, its the way that you roll that matters, and you are ROLLING!!  On the strength of a two point performance by Kenya Marcelline and Katie Brewster, plus an excellent outing by Kristin Wolfe, STU downed the Mount Alison Mounties 5 to 0 this afternoon at the Grant-Harvey Centre.

The first period was scoreless but rookie Emily Francis had the best chance of the period on a breakaway but shot the puck over all-star goalie Meghan Corley-Byrne and the net.  The shots were 8 to 3 for STU in the opening frame.

Katie Brewster scored the first goal - again - unassisted at 1:48 of the second when she drove hard to the net and was able to direct the puck past the Mt. A keeper.  The lead would be increased at 18:23 when Kenya Marcelline scored with assists to Blackmore and Jenna Scott.  Eight seconds after that at 18:32 Emily Francis would get her first of the night from Blackmore and Marcelline to stake the Tommies to a 3 - 0 lead after two periods.  Shots were 11 - 10 in St. Thomas' favour.

St. Thomas would put the game out of reach on a goal by Kelty Apperson at 13:25 of the third period with assists to Brewster and Emily Ryan.  The final dagger in the Mounties heart came with 32 seconds remaining in the game as Dani Miller scored off a pass from Erin MacIsaac to give the final score of 5 - 0.  Overall the shots were 30 - 20 for the Tommies.

Just like yesterday's game the Tommies had a balanced effort with the top three lines producing goals.  The goaltenders were excellent with Kristin Wolfe earning the shut out today and Kenya Marcelline picking up player of the game honours.

The Lady Tommies will not be back in action until next Sunday when they take on the Dalhousie Tigers at the venerable Halifax Forum.  Let's hope there is a webcast.  Dal to hit the road for home games
