Tommie's end season with win

The St. Thomas Tommies ended the  2012-13 season the same way they started it, with a win against UdeM.  Graduating seniors Kayla Blackmore, Courtney Fox, and Julia Sharun had strong games and rookie Kenya Marcelline had a four point night to propell STU onto a 4 - 1 victory.

Blackmore got things rolling for STU in the first period taking a centering feed from Kenya Marcelline for an early lead at 5:59. Jordan Miller picked up the second assist with the hard work down low.  It was the only goal of the period in which U de M out shot STU 7 to 5.

The second STU goal at 4:57 of the second frame was a pretty give and go between Blackmore and Marcelline where Kayla finished with a top shelf goal past Emily Bouchard in the Moncton net.   Stephanie Gates would pad the Tommie's lead at 13:24.  Marcelline would get the puck to McTaggart down low, who would come out from behind the net to get a shot before Gates buried the rebound for a 3 -  0 lead.

Kenya Marcelline would put the game out of reach at 10:05 burying a great pass from Blackmore and Jordan Miller. U de M would break Sharun's shut out bid with 1:20 to play on the power play as Felicia Anctil wired a wrist shot for Moncton's only goal.  

Final score was 4 to 1 with STU out shooting  UdeM 27 - 21.  Players of the game were the three seniors Blackmore, Fox, and Sharun. 

With their fifth win in a row STU heads to the playoffs next weekend in Sackville with a team record 16 wins and second place finish.  Their opponents in next weekend's tournament have not been decided.
