Box Score

CHESTNUT HILL, MASS. - Round two goes to the Eagles.

The ninth-ranked Providence College women's ice hockey team was defeated by No. 8 Boston College, 3-1, at Conte Forum. The decision came one week after PC handled the maroon-and-gold by the same score at Schneider Arena.

Providence College junior goaltender Genevieve Lacasse (Scarborough, Ontario) made 32 saves in the effort, moving up to second all time on the Friar's career saves list with 2,355. She is now just 200 shy of the all-time record, set by Jana Bugden in 2006.

The Friars jumped on top early. Seven minutes into the opening period, junior Ashley Cottrell (Sterling Heights, Mich.) broke in on a 2 on 1 rush and slipped the puck through the goalie's pads from the right side of the doorstep. Cottrell's 11th of the season made it 1-0 Friars.

The top goal-scorer in Hockey East answered quickly. At the 16:11 mark, Eagle captain Kelli Stack controlled the puck off the face-off and scored from in tight for her 25th goal of the season. The teams went into the first intermission knotted up, 1-1.

The Eagles used a power play opportunity to carve a 2-1 edge midway through the middle stanza, when Stack redirected a slapshot home for her second of the game. The Eagles Mary Restuccia scored the lone goal of the third period, a breakaway strike with one minute remaining in regulation.

The Friars return to action on Sunday, January 30, when they visit Vermont. Face-off in Burlington is scheduled for 4 p.m. The next home game at Schneider Arena will be Sunday, February 6 against Boston College.
