PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College field hockey team fell to Maine, 4-1, in non-conference action on Monday, October 28 in Providence, R.I.
The Black Bears took an early 2-0 lead in the first half with goals from Becca Paradee and Holly Stewart. Paradee deflected a slow, bouncing ball into the back of the cage off an initial shot attempt from Sydney Veljacic during a penalty corner at 12:41. Veljacic was credited with the assist. At the 16:44 mark, Stewart scored off a deflection at the right post during a penalty corner, assisted by Annabelle Hamilton.
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. Maine's Danielle Aviani netted the lone goal of the second half in the 48th minute, off a feed from Marissa Shaw. Aviani carried the ball into the right side of the circle and fired a low, hard shot into the near side of the cage.
For the game, the Friars out-shot Maine, 14-9. The Black Bears recorded a 7-5 advantage in penalty corners.
