X-Men hang on for win over Tommies


Three goals in just under six minutes of the second period proved to be the difference as the St-FX X-Men defeated the Tommies 4 to 2 tonight in Antigonish.  

St. Thomas was first on the board at 15:28 of the first period as Felix Poulin scored his 4th goal of the year on the powerplay with the only assist going to Jon Bonneau.  For the most part the X-Men controlled the period out shooting the Tommies 10 to 4 but STU took the lead into the intermission.

St-FX scored three goals in a row at 4:56, 9:54 and 10:50 of the second period to take a 3 to 1 lead.  STU fought back scoring their second goal of the night off the stick of Matt Bissonnette (Childerley, Beaudry) at 15:07 cutting the advantage to one.  

STU battled hard in the third but couldn't find the equalizer and X scored into the empty net with 9 seconds left in the game to seal the win.  Final shots on goal were 31 to 20 for St-FX.

The Tommies next action will be this Friday night at the AUC when they take on the Varsity Reds.
