PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College field hockey team defeated Brown, 3-2, in overtime on October 18 at Lennon Family Field in Providence, R.I. Freshman Steph Guglielmo (Castle Rock, Colo.) tallied the game winner for Providence, 10:32 into overtime off a long outlet pass from freshman Henni Tietze (Sankt Augustin, Germany).
Guglielmo collected the pass, dribbled the ball into the top of the circle and forced Brown's keeper to come make a play. The goalkeeper attempted to clear the ball out of play, but Gugliemlo broke down her steps, pulled the ball back and lifted it over the keeper for the victory.
In the first half, the Bears got on the scoreboard early to take a 1-0 lead just 1:27 into the match. Clayton Christus tallied the goal on a reverse stick shot from the middle of the circle, after receiving a crossing pass from Haley Alvarez.
Providence finished the half with two unanswered goals to take a 2-1 lead into the break. Sophomore Hillary Anderson (Barrington, R.I.) struck first at 11:41 as she one-timed a pass from sophomore Kasey Bulman (Farmingdale, N.J.) during a penalty corner. Sophomore Henni Tietze (Sankt Augustin, Germany) put the Friars ahead on a direct shot during a penalty corner at 22:44. Anderson and senior Deirdre Quinn (Walpole, Mass.) were credited with assists.
Brown's Bridget McNamara tied the game, 2-2, at 39:38 as she one-timed a pass from Laura Iacovetti during a corner play. It proved to be the only goal of the second half, and forced overtime.
Providence outshot Brown, 13-10, including a 9-8 edge in shots on goal. The Friars also held an 8-5 advantage in penalty corners. In the overtime session, shots were even at three apiece. Brown held the edge in corners during overtime, 1-0, but they came up empty on the set play.
