Wolfe and Apperson lead Tommies over X

With some timely goal scoring by Kelty Apperson and the solid goaltending of Kristin Wolfe, the Lady Tommies defeated the St-FX X-Women 3 to 2 in a shoot out.  It was STU's first win at the Grant-Harvey Center over X in four tries since opening the building back in the fall of 2012.

Tonight, it was Apperson who opened the scoring for STU at the 8:00 minute mark of the first period when she took a Katie Brewster pass at the side of the net and fired it home from a sharp angle.  Connor Garagan tied the game for X 1:17 later.  The match would remain tied until the third period.

St. FX would take their first lead of the game at 6:08 of the third period on the powerplay.  With time running out on the Tommies, Kelty Apperson (Steinert, Brewster) tied the game with 1:41 to go.  She also missed on a breakaway with under 30 seconds to play and was a force all night creating havoc in the X-Women's end from the "get go".

After regulation the game was tied at 2 and the shots favoured X, 38 to 25.

The overtime period solved nothing.

In the shootout Kristin Wolfe was spectacular stopping all 5 X-Women shooters and Jenna Scott put one in the attic knocking the water bottle off the net for STU's only goal.

This was a huge win for the Tommies and an important 2 points in the standings.
