Game Recap

The Tommies took a two goal lead in the first six minutes on goals by Underhill and Hogen. UNB wouldn't get their first shot until the 12 minute mark. Trevor Boland responded for UNB in the last half of the period with two goals, the first a power play to tie the game.

STU took the lead again at 3:22 on a a power play goal by Bill Weir who deflected a Pat Cloutier point shot past UNB netminder, Frank LeBlanc. UNB would have seven straight minutes of 5-4, but couldn't capitalize as well as 3 different 5 minute situations that were also missed. STU would set UNB back two goals when Dave Gilmore scored with 3 minutes left in the period only seconds after Jason Campeau had missed a wraparound attempt.

Dave Gilmore would score again, off his own rebound, to seal the game at 5-2. UNB finished the night 1-10 on the power play. UNB forward, Jeff Andrews, was out with an injury.

Boland said Jeffrey's name came up in preperation for the game. "I think people tried to bring it up. It's hard to really let a lot of the guys know who weren't here. It's been five years and you can try to convey it. But unless you were here when it all happened and you knew the man, it's hard to convey it. You just have to go out and play the game for the game itself. And tonight we just didn't show up...not just one or two guys...out whole team."

"They had a lot of key players tonight who played their role to the fullest," said defenceman Dan Sherstenka, who was awarded the Mark Jeffrey Merit Award. "Those guys play their role and play it well and I think their third power play goal (by Gilmore) was the nail in the coffin for us."
