1st Quarter: St. Joseph’s scored the lone goal off the first quarter as Chris Blewitt scored with 9:41 left in the frame to put the Hawks up 1-0.
2nd Quarter: The Friars grabbed their first lead of the game early in the second quarter. Austin Goltz (Orchard Park, N.Y.) scored his fourth goal of the season to tie the game, 1-1. Less than a minute later, Joshua Keller (Grand Rapids, Mich.) gave Providence a 2-1 edge with his first goal of the year. St. Joseph’s responded with goals from Mike Rastivo and Blewitt, but the Friars' Evan McGreen (Narragansett, R.I.) tied the score, 3-3, with 5:02 to play in the half.
3rd Quarter: The two sides went scoreless in the third quarter. The Friars held an 11-7 edge in shots during the third.
4th Quarter: The game remained tied, 3-3, through the first eight minutes of the fourth quarter. Sean Leahey (Cranford, N.J.), however, finally broke the deadlock scoring his ninth goal of the season, unassisted, to give the Friars a 4-3 lead with 6:39 left. Austin Smith picked up a groundball off a Providence turnover and the Hawks came up with a successful clear attempt with less than 40 seconds to play. The Friars' All-American goaltender Tate Boyce (Matthews, N.C.), however, saved Kyle Cain’s shot with two-seconds to seal the victory for Providence.
Game Notes: Three goals are the fewest allowed by Providence since April 23, 2008 when the Friars defeated Wagner, 12-3, in Providence, R.I. St. Joseph’s goalkeeper Mike Alder finished with 16 saves, while Boyce had seven saves. Leahey scored his ninth goal of the season and first game-winning goal of the year. He leads the Friars overall in scoring (14 points) and assists (five) this season is tied for the team lead in goals (nine). Providence College has recorded a 3-0 record this season on Chapey Field at Anderson Stadium.
What’s Next: The Friars will travel to Sacred Heart on Saturday, March 3rd in Fairfield, Connecticut. Opening faceoff is set for 1:00 p.m.
