BURLINGTON, Vt. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team was defeated by Vermont, 7-3, on Sunday afternoon at the Gutterson Fieldhouse. The Friars now move to 6-18-4 on the season and 5-10-1 in the Hockey East. Vermont now stands at 12-16-1 overall and 3-13-0 in conference play.
Vermont started off the game scoring three goals in a span of 40 seconds (7:56, 8:17 and 8:34). UVM's Dayna Colang scored the first two goals while Delia McNally scored the third. Providence responded with a power-play goal from senior Beth Hanrahan (Poolesville, Md.) at 11:02. She was assisted by sophomore Cassidy Carels (Bruxelles, Manitoba) and senior Brooke Simpson (Boxborough, Mass.). Simpson passed the puck cross ice where Carels deflected it to Hanrahan on the back side, where she finished for her team-best 13th goal of the season.
Colang picked up the Catamounts' fourth goal (18:41) on the power-play, to give her a hat trick, and UVM a 4-1 lead entering the first intermission.
The Catamounts added two more goals in the second period by Campbell (4:31) and Casey Levillee (10:38). In between the two, Carels notched a goal (5:03), for her second point of the game. Carels' goal was assisted by junior Lexi Romanchuk (San Jose, Calif.) and sophomore Arianna Reid (Lakeville, Minn.).
Providence added a power-play goal by senior Haley Frade (Marion, Mass.) from just outside the faceoff circle at 10:00 in the third to bring the score to 6-3, in favor of UVM. Romanchuk and Simpson assisted the tally.
Vermont retaliated with a goal from Bridget Baker to bring the score to its final of 7-3 (11:56). The goal was assisted by Brittany Zuback and Mackenzie MacNeil.
