St-FX posts two victories over Tommies

The St-FX X-Men and Women were both too much for St. Thomas teams tonight as the X-Men won 4 to 1 and the X-Women held on for a 4 to 3 win.

Tonight's home game for the women was in support of Hailey's Dreams and Fredericton fans showed their support.  Over 700 people came out to the Grant-Harvey Centre and over $3000 was raised for this incredible young Lady.  As I watched her come out to drop the ceremonial first puck my only wish was that she wasn't sick, so young.  I could also tell you that I was able to hold back my tears but I couldn't, I was so proud and sad at the same time.  Please take a moment and check out Hailey's Dreams on line.

In tonight's game the Tommies took the lead in the first to fire up the crowd but the X-Women rattled off the next 4 goals.  STU came back in the third with two goals in the third but couldn't find the tying marker.  Scoring for the Tommies were Amy Duffield, Cassidy McTaggart, and Jenna Scott.

In Antigonish, the men tied the game early in the second on a Jonathan Bonneau goal but the X-Men scored three in the second period and held on for a 4 to 1 win.  STU outshot the X-Men 26 to 20 and 16 to 2 in the third period.
