Moncton takes down Tommies

A sharp shooting U de M team made the most of their chances tonight defeating the Tommies 6 - 2 in Moncton.   STU's powerplay failed to get anything going and went 0 for 5, while the PK allowed 2 goals on 6 chances.  Jon Groenheyde suffered the loss in net.

Les Aigles scored first at 2:14 but 13 seconds later Colin Martin (Bissonnette) came right back down the ice and tied the game at ones.  Moncton capitalized on some opportunistic bounces midway through the opening frame scoring two goals in eleven seconds at 10:49 and 11:00.  Both goals were scored 4 on 4.

Moncton would score two more goals in the second period at 13:04 and 18:17 for a 5 - 1 lead.

Colin Martin (Bissonnette, S. MacDonald) would score his second of the night at 4:06 to shrink the lead to three but Moncton would add a late tally at 17:24 for a 6 to 2 final.

On the plus side SMU, St-FX, and UPEI also lost tonight.  This sets up a big game tomorrow night versus the Panthers at the Grant-Harvey Centre.  Game time 7 PM.

In women's hockey action, the Lady Tommies were edged by the St-FX X-Women 4 to 3.  STU's Kenya Marcelline scored 2 goals and Kelty Apperson had the other.  Kristin Wolfe took the loss in net facing 30 shots.  Box Score
