Huskies trump Tommies

Paced by two goals in the first period the Saint Mary's Huskies defeated the Tommies 2 to 1 this evening at the Grant-Harvey Centre.  Jon Groenheyde was brilliant in the STU nets making several key saves to keep the game close.

Saint Mary's would score at 6:40 to take an early lead and would have a great come back shift to take a 2 goal lead 16 seconds later.  A strange play occurred late in the period as it appeared that Jon Bonneau was going to go in on a breakaway but the referee - out of now wheres - got between him and the puck negating the break.  The Huskies dominated the period out shooting STU 17 - 4 but Groenheyde held the fort during the barrage. 

The second period saw Steve Sanza (Bernier, Levesque) score on a partial breakaway at 48 seconds when he just tucked the puck past a sprawling SMU goalie to cut the lead in half.  The Tommies caught a break a few minutes later when a SMU goal was called back because a Huskie was in the crease.  The middle period was more even as the shots favoured SMU 6 to 5.  

STU attacked hard in the third and came close several times but could not solve Anthony Peters in the SMU net for the tying goal. 

St. Thomas will be back in action tomorrow evening at 7PM when the St.FX X-Men roll into the GHC.  This will be the final game of the first half for STU.
