Huskies bite Tommies in shoot out

It took a shoot out but the Saint Mary's Huskies defeated the Tommies 3 to 2 this evening at the Grant Harvey Center.

The first period saw John MacDonald (Thomas, Morehouse) open the scoring on a breakaway at 7:35 on a great feed from Jordan Thomas.  Saint Mary's would tie the game in the last minute of the period off the stick of Lucas Bloodoff.  

The Tommies were the only team to hit the score sheet in the second when Alex Labonte sent a perfect pass to Mike Reich, who was all alone in front the Huskies net an made no mistake with the shot.  Alex Leduc with the other assist.  

The Huskies would tie the game at 7:35 of the third when Cory Tanaka got one by Jon Groenheyde but it was the Tommies goalie that held the fort for the rest of the third and overtime to force a shoot out. Shots on goal were 42 to 28 in favour of SMU through four periods of hockey.

In the shootout, Stephen Johnston was the only shooter to score but it was enough to propel the Huskies to the win.  Jonathan Bonneau, Colin Martin, and Steve Sanza all shot for STU but could not beat SMU's Chris Perugini.

The Tommies will be back at it tomorrow night against ST-FX looking for their first home win.
