Chalk up another win for the Lady Tommies.  Back stopped by a 20 save performance by Kristin Wolfe, STU vaulted into sole possession of first place in the AUS with a 2 to 1 victory over the Mount Allison Mounties.

St. Thomas did all of their goal scoring in the first period.  Kayla Blackmore scored her fifth goal of the season on a partial breakaway unassisted.  Blackmore muscled through the MT A. defender to beat all-star goalie Meagan Corley-Byrne at 3:46.

Sophomore Erin MacIsaac would get the eventual game winning goal at 15:16.  Once again the goal was unassisted. Shots were 14 to 8 in the period for STU.

The second period was scoreless with the Tommies holding the shot advantage 11 to 8 and both goalies playing well.

In the third, MT. A would "mount" a comeback as Samantha Bujold would score at 7:40 but STU and Wolfe would shut the door to any further damage.  Shots were 10 - 5 in favour of the Tommies and 35 to 21 overall.

Game notes:

STU is struggling on the powerplay going 0 for 3 with the advantage today.  The Tommies can't seem to get the PP going well.

St. Thomas is playing very disciplined hockey, only taking one penalty today. Yes, they were perfect on the PK, killing off MT A's only opportunity.

The Tommies will not see action again until next Sunday afternoon when the Dalhousie Tigers pay their first visit to the Grant-Harvey Centre.  Come on out and watch the Lady Tommies fight for first place.

I was happy to see at least 4 or 5 regulars to men's games at yesterdays Lady's game.  Remember that your season's pass to the men's games is also good for the Lady Tommies.  Get the biggest bang for your bucks and come on out next Sunday afternoon and support St. Thomas Hockey.
