Jan. 23, 2011

Box Score

KINGSTON, MASS. - In a game played in front of a sold-out crowd, No. 9 Providence College women's hockey outlasted No. 9 Northeastern, 2-1, at the Bog Skating Rink in Kingston, Mass.

Coupled with Friday's 3-1 victory over No. 7 Boston College, the Friars took four points from nationally ranked foes over the weekend.

It was Northeastern who converted initially. Just moments after the puck was dropped, Huskie senior captain Julia Marty collected a feed at the right of the doorstep and struck twine.

Providence knotted the game at the 12:23 mark of the first. Freshman Corrine Buie (Edina, Minn.) carried along the right wing, wheeled around the right circle and centered a pass to junior Ashley Cottrell (Sterling Heights, Mich.). The center settled the puck and wristed a rising shot home for her 10th of the year. The teams went into the first intermission knotted, 1-1.

After a scoreless middle period, Buie scored the eventual game-winner moments into the third. At the 2:24 mark, the speedy freshman skated into the NU zone and around a defenseman before firing her own wrist shot in from the right circle. It was Buie's ninth of the season.

Friar goalie Genevieve Lacasse finished with 35 saves, giving her a remarkable 86 stops on the weekend. NU's Florence Schelling halted 27.

The contest, which was originally scheduled to be a Northeastern home game, was an effort to bring the women's game to the community. The skating rink was selected as it is located in a rich hockey area in the south shore of Massachusetts, and featured standing room only attendance.

The Friars play again on Friday, January 28, when they visit Boston College. Face-off at Conte Forum is scheduled for 7 p.m. The next home game will be Sunday, February 6 against Boston College. Start time is p.m. and tickets are available by calling the PC ticket office at (401) 865 GOPC.
