The 2013-14 Tommies Season Has Come to an End

Teah Anderson (Burns, Apperson), game tying goal.
The lady Tommies faced off against the UdeM Aigles Bleues this morning at 10am to play the 5th place game. Although beat from playing the last two nights against Saskatchewan and Montreal. They gave the Tommies faithful one heck of a great game!

The Tommies pressured the Aigles Bleues right till the very end of the game, you could certainly see it in the shot count. St. Thomas lead the shots on goal for a total of 28-21. Unfortunately Moncton led in the score column, as they beat the Tommies 2-1 in regulation.

Moncton opened the scoring in the first period when they managed to get one past Tommies keeper Kristin Wolfe three quarters of the way through the opening frame, the shots on goal for both teams were nine a piece.

The second period remained scoreless till Teah Anderson (Burns, Apperson) found the back of the net at the 18:19 mark. The Tommies kept putting shots on goal and trying to solve UdeM's Gabrielle Forget, St. Thomas led the shots on goal 10-4.

The third period did not disappoint as the Tommies came out flying trying to get that all important go ahead goal bit to no avail. Moncton scored at 9:36. St. Thomas pulled goaltender Kristin Wolfe with 37 seconds left on the game clock but even with the extra attacker were not able to get the tying goal. The Tommies still came out on top of the shots on goal 9-8.

Congratulations to captain Katie Brewster, Amanda Burns, Kristin Wolfe and Jordan Miller as they go off to graduate in April. You ladies left it all on the ice and the Tommies fans thank-you for all your hard work and dedication.

This afternoon the Laurier Golden Hawks and Saskatchewan Huskies are going to play-off for the bronze medal at 2pm. Good luck to both teams.
