LOUISVILLE, KY. - The Providence College field hockey team fell to 16th-ranked Louisville, 3-2, in overtime on Friday, November 1 at Trager Stadium in Louisville, Ky. The Cards picked up at least a share of the BIG EAST regular-season title with the victory.
Louisville took a 1-0 lead 5:46 into the match as Becca Maddock dove at the right post to score on a deflection. Shannon Sloss was credited with the assist on the play as she fed Maddock a crossing pass from the left side of the cage.
The Friars tied the game, 1-1, at the 14:02 mark during a penalty corner. Junior defender Henni Tietze (Sankt Augustin, Germany) scored the goal on a direct shot, assisted by junior Kaleigh FitzPatrick (Dedham, Mass.) and sophomore Emma Mackie (Delta, British Columbia).
Providence took a 2-1 lead at 19:45 as junior Daniella Bernasconi (Hopewell Junction, N.Y.) dribbled along the left baseline and put a shot into the goalkeeper's pads. Senior Sally Adua (Madison, Conn.) collected the rebound and directed the ball into the back of the cage for her fourth goal of the season, unassisted.
The Cardinals answered at the 26:10 mark on a penalty corner. The initial shot on the corner was saved, but Mallory Mason collected a long rebound on the left side of the circle and put the ball into the upper right side of the cage, unassisted. The two teams went to halftime tied, 2-2.
After a scoreless second half, the two teams headed to overtime. At the end of regulation, the Cardinals held a 17-11 advantage in shots and a 12-6 edge in penalty corners.
The Cards came away with the victory 80:59 into the game as Jennifer Pels fired a shot from the left side of the circle into the right side of the cage off a feed from Alyssa Voelmle. With the victory, Louisville clinches at least a share of the BIG EAST Conference regular-season title.
