CANTON, N.Y. - - The Providence College women's hockey team skated to a 3-3 overtime tie at No. 5 St. Lawrence on Saturday, October 10 at Appleton Arena in Canton, N.Y. Sophomore Ashley Cottrell (Sterling Heights, Mich.) scored with 1:30 left in the third period, while senior Arianna Rigano (Malden, Mass.) scored twice to lead the Friars.
St. Lawrence (0-1-1) took a 1-0 first period on a goal by Jamie Goldsmith at the 11:03 mark. Providence (2-1-1) tied the game at 1-1 when Rigano scored the first of her two goals with just five seconds left in the second period.
The third period was a back-and-forth battle. St. Lawrence's Vanessa Emond scored a short-handed goal at the 4:49 to give her team a 2-1 lead. Just 45 seconds later, Rigano struck again to even the score at 2-2. It marked Rigano's third goal of the season.
