Providence cut the deficit to one goal (2-1) in the 32nd minute as Sally Adua (Madison, Conn.) knocked in a rebound off the goalkeeper's pads.
The Friars' momentum was halted just over two minutes later as Nicole Sevey tipped in a ball off a feed from Veljacic. Maine took a 3-1 advantage into the halftime break.
Shots were even in the first half, 5-5, but Maine held a 5-2 edge in penalty corners. All three Black Bear goals were scored during penalty corners.
In the second half, Providence outshot the Black Bears, 9-4, and held a 3-2 edge in corners, but couldn't find the back of the cage.
