Providence Beats Vermont 5-1 in Sheraton/USAirways ClassicStats
BURLINGTON, Vt. -- The Providence College men's hockey team defeated the University of Vermont, 5-1, Saturday, Dec. 27 in the second game of the Sheraton/USAirways Classic in Burlington, Vt.
Vermont tallied the only goal of the first period when B.J. Kilbourne broke up the play at his own blue line and skated into the Friar zone and slammed home a rebound after several shots in a short-handed situation at the 11:20 mark.
The PC offense came to life in the second period as the Friars netted two unanswered goals by juniors Troy Lake and Jon Cameron. Lake evened the game at 1-1 as he rushed down the right side and tucked the puck between the pads of Catamount netminder James Tierney at 6:54. Twenty four seconds later Cameron tallied what proved to be the game-winning goal and gave the Friars the lead with a blast from the right point, which found the right lower corner of the net.
PC took control in the third period as Jerry Keefe and Jason Ialongo each added a power-play goal for the Friars. Mike Mader also notched a goal for PC in the third when he went end-to-end and roofed a shot into the top left corner at 5:59.
Providence freshman goaltender Boyd Ballard made 20 stops in the win. Tierney recorded 24 saves for Vermont.
With the win Providence raised its record to 11-3-1, while Vermont fell to 3-8-2.
Providence College will return to action on Sunday, Dec. 28 against Dartmouth at 4:00 p.m. in the Championship Game of the Sheraton/USAirways Classic at Vermont's Gutterson Fieldhouse
