2012-13 season comes to an end with loss to Panthers

The UPEI Panthers scored one goal in the first period, one goal in the second period, and three in the third to defeat the Tommies 5 to 1 tonight in Charlottetown.  Robert Zandbeek scored STU's only goal mid way through the third to make it 3 to 1 at the time but that was as close as the Tommies could get.  

Jon Groenheyde was a rock in the STU net facing 34 shots on the night.  At least 3 of the Panther's goals were odd man rushes where the goalie had no chance at all.  On at least three occasions, probably more, Groenheyde made unbelievable saves to keep STU close.   BOX SCORE

Without question, STU's MVP for this year will be Jon Groenheyde.  When every other player would have quit, Jon played through it and put in unbelievable effort even after the score was well out of reach. It was a real treat to watch him play this year.  Kudos to @JonnyG3141
