The Lady Tommies got back on the winning track this afternoon, dumping the Saint Mary's Huskies 3 to 2.  With the win the Tommies improve to 8 wins and 2 losses and will head out on the road to complete the remainder of the first half at UPEI this coming Wednesday and Moncton next Sunday.

STU was first on the board this afternoon when Amy Duffield potted her second straight first goal of the game.  Chelsea Fiander found Duffield all alone in front of the SMU net and Amy made no mistake  roofing the puck over Sienna Cooke.  This would be the only goal of the period.  The shots on goal were even at 7 apiece.

The Tommies would strike early in the second period at 2:23.  Katie Brewster would control the puck down low and come out and score an unassisted marker to give STU a two goal lead.  Kayla Blackmore would increase the margin to three at 11:18 while paying the price of getting banged up on the play.  St. Thomas had a .667 shooting percentage in the period as they only had 3 shots in total, in comparison to the Huskies with 5.

Rebecca Mosher  would score on the PP at 7:11 and Billee Canning, also on the PP, would fire a blast past Kristin Wolfe at 16:27 to make it close but the Tommies held on for the victory.  Final shots were 21 - 18 for SMU.  St. Thomas was 0 for 6 on the PP and 0 for 2 on the PK, as the Huskies scored both times with the extra player.

Katie Brewster was player of the game, Kayla Blackmore with her third game winning goal of the season was second star, and Cassiday McTaggart with a strong physical presence was third star.  Kristin Wolfe was solid stopping 19 of 21 shots.
