CANTON, N.Y. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team skated to a 3-3 tie, Sunday, at St. Lawrence.
It is the Friars' (0-2-2) second tie in two weeks.
The Friars jumped on the board first when, at the 5:33 mark of the opening period, Jensen scored her first of the year. The defenseman sent a wrist shot from the right point home through traffic.
The Saints rallied with a pair towards the end of the first period, courtesy a point blank score from Rylee Smith and an unassisted strike by senior Vanessa Emond. It was 2-1, Saints, heading into the first intermission.
The Friars answered early in the middle period, as Buie crashed the net and scored on her own rebound at the 3:56 mark. Later, at 15:52, Providence scored its first power play of the young season when Kate Bacon blasted the puck home from the slot for a 3-2 Friar lead.
SLU responded with 33 seconds left in the second, as defenseman Brooke Fernandez converted on her own rebound to send the game into the second intermission knotted up, 3-3. The score would hold through the third period and overtime.
Providence received a strong effort in net from sophomore Nina Riley (Lexington, Mass.), who stopped 33 shots in her first start of the season. The Saints' Carmen McDonald halted 24.
Providence returns home next weekend, October 15 and 16, for a pair with #8 Mercyhurst. Both games at Schneider Arena begin at 1 p.m. Tickets are available by calling (401) 865 GOPC or by visiting Friars.com.
