Tommies clinch 2nd with win over Mounties

For the second game in a row, the St. Thomas Tommies pull out a much needed win with a 1 - 0 victory.  Tonight on the road over the Mount Allison Mounties.  A late third period goal by rookie Kenya Marcelline was the only puck to dent the twine and Kristin Wolfe picked up her second shut out of the season versus the Mounties.

The first and second periods were scoreless affairs, if not for the goalies, definitely because of the goal posts as STU and MTA combined for six doses of iron.  Shots after two periods were 13 to 13.

In the final period Mount Allison and St. Thomas traded powerplay chances with one each.  In what proved to be a wise decision, Coach Murphy called a late time out with 1:53 to play.  He must of said something good because 39 seconds later the Tommies would pot the winner.

Kenya Marcelline would score her third goal of the year, none larger than this one, at 18:43 to lift the Tommies to the one goal victory.  Kayla Blackmore was credited with the only assist.

Kristin Wolfe would make the goal stand up as the winner, stopping all 21 shots fired her way.  STU shot 22 at MTA's Kate O'Brien, with number 22 (Marcelline's number) being the deadliest.

With the win STU clinches second position in the AUS and will return home for their final home game this Saturday night against Moncton.  Come out to the game and help the Tommies support Mental Health Awareness.
