Panthers squeak past Tommies

Jonathan Bonneau (Sanza and Thomas) scoring on Wayne Savage.
The Tommies played another good game tonight versus UPEI but lost 2 to 1 on the strength of a third period goal by the Panthers.

STU started the scoring in this tight game when Jon Bonneau (Sanza, Thomas) collected his fourth goal of the season at 6:48 of the first period.  It was the only one of the period that saw the Tommies out shoot the Panthers 12 to 11. 

UPEI scored the only goal of the second period when the Tommies had a poor line change just as a Panther penalty expired.  It created a 3 on 1 that Tyler Brown finished with a shot just inside the post past Jon Groenheyde in the STU net. No more damage was done as the shots favoured UPEI 12 to 5.

In the final frame UPEI scored just over half way through the period as they hit a goal post and the rebound was promptly potted into an open net for the game winner.  STU tried valiantly to tie the game up in the last minute but could not get the puck past Wayne Savage in the PEI net.  Final shots on goal were 34 to 19 for the Panthers.

The Tommies head to Moncton tomorrow night to take on Les Aigles Bleus.  Game time is 7 PM and the game will be live on www.AUStv.ca.  Follow @STUTommies on twitter for live in game reports. 

In AUS Women's play tonight from Prince Edward Island, the Lady Tommies defeated UPEI 1 - 0.  Emily Francis scored the only goal of the game on a first period breakaway and Kristin Wolfe made the lead hold up to earn her first shut out of the season.  

The Tommies will be home tomorrow afternoon vs. Les Aigles Bleues starting at 3PM from the GHC.
