Tyra Meropoulis picked up two points in the win, including assisting on the game winner and earned herself the Subway Player of the Game. Jayden Thompson and Lindsey Donovan (EN) also scored in the victory.
The X-Women then edged the Tommies 2-1 Saturday night, with StFX's Lea MacLeod earning first star and Subway player of the game honours as she scored two of the X-Women's goals on the evening. Alex Woods earned the lone goal of the game for the Tommies.
The UPEI Panthers also earned four points this week, starting the week off with a 5-2 victory over the Mount Allison Mounties Wednesday night. UPEI goals came from Taylor Gillis, Kaylee Dufresne, Rachel Colle, Jolena Gillard (PP) and Faith Steeves (EN), while Lauren Shaw and Maddy Koughan found the back of the net for the Mounties in the loss.
