Tommies drop OT decision to X

A tough overtime loss tonight for the Tommies earned them an important point in the standings but they were so close to earning two.  St-FX scored two goals in the final 2:04 of the third period to tie it and pulled out the win in overtime 6 to 5.

After the first period the game was tied at one's thanks to a marker by Steve Sanza (Cameron - Childerley).  Colin Martin (Bonneau, Leduc) and Jonathan Bonneau on a breakaway late in the second period gave STU a 3 to 2 lead going into the final period.

The Tommies took a two goal lead in the third period on a Randy Cameron (Poulin, Bonneau) goal at 4:15.  The X-Men responded but Yuri Cheremetiev scored with 4:50 remaining to regain the two goal advantage.  X scored on the powerplay with 2:04 remaining to cut the lead to one and then with only 9 seconds left - and their net empty - scored to tie it.  The STU defenders did all they could and actually blocked several shots but the puck landed on X-Men sticks each time before they eventually lifted the puck over Jon Groenheyde.  

With under 4 minutes to play in the OT period, Jason Bast of the X-Men collected his own rebound and roofed one for the winner. 

The Tommies Jon Bonneau did have a three point night and Jon Groenheyde made some big saves.  STU will be back at it tomorrow night at 7PM when they play the SMU Huskies at the Halifax Forum.
