The Friars are now 4-0-1 on the season. On Friday, Oct. 25, Providence posted a 3-2 overtime win against the RedHawks as freshman forward Niko Rufo (Stoneham, Mass.) scored the game-winning goal 1:38 into overtime.

With Friday night's win over Miami, Providence defeated a top-10 team while also ranked in the top-10 for the first time since posting a 5-3 win over Boston College on Feb. 9, 2001.
