Tommies tame Tigers to remain undefeated

Another game, another impressive victory for the Lady Tommies.  Today in Halifax the Lady Tommies raced out to an early lead and never looked back, defeating the Dalhousie Tigers 4 to 0.  Julia Sharun picked up the easiest shut out of her St. Thomas career stopping 14 shots.

The game wasn't a minute old when Katie Brewster did what she does best - score the game's first goal - for the third time in a row. The goal was on the powerplay at 0:53 with Kelty Apperson drawing the only assist.

Stephanie Gates (J. Miller, Burns) would score her first goal of the season firing one past Mati Barrett in the DAL net at 12:51 after some aggressive forechecking by the fourth line.  STU would increase the lead on the powerplay at 15:08 when Emily Ryan (Brewster, Gates) dented the twine.  The official box score says Brewster got the goal but Ryan was the actual gunner.

Late in the period Cassidy McTaggart would fire a long range wrister that found the top shelf at 17:01 with Amanda Burns collecting her second assist of the afternoon.  STU dominated the period and out shot the Tigers 12 - 3.

Little changed in the second and third periods as the Tommies continually pressed Dalhousie and caused them to take penalty after penalty.  Shots were 8 to 5 in the second and 10 to 6 the third for a game total of 30 - 14 for STU.  Sharun was excellent when called upon to earn the Tommies second shut out in a row.  CIS Box Score

With the win the Tommies now share first place with the St-FX X-Women, who are also 3 and 0 after winning both of their games this weekend.  STU will travel to Antigonish this Friday night for a first place showdown with X.
