PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team registered a 3-0 loss in the second game of the weekend series against the #8/9 Clarkson University Golden Knights on Sunday, Oct. 12 at Schneider Arena. With the non-conference loss, the Friars record falls to 0-4-0 for the season. Clarkson improves to 3-1-0 on the season.
The game remained scoreless after the first period. Providence junior goaltender Sarah Bryant (Bethlehem, Pa.) stopped all 13 shots by the Golden Knights while Shea Tiley made six saves for Clarkson in the period.
The score remained even until 16:50 of the second period when Genevieve Bannon broke the tie in favor of the Golden Knights, scoring her first goal of the game. Bannon's goal came following an odd man rush up the ice. Bannon chose to take the shot on the play from the top of the face-off circle to the left of Bryant, to get the eventual game-winning goal. The assists on the goal were awarded to Cayley Mercer and Jennifer Shields.
During the third period, a penalty was assessed to Friars sophomore defenseman Kendra Goodrich (Apple Valley, Minn.), and the Friars had a strong start on the penalty kill as sophomore Cassidy Carels (Bruxelles, Manitoba) and senior Allison Micheletti (Inver Grove Heights, Minn.) combined for a great scoring chance that was stopped by Tiley. But, the Golden Knights responded on their next rush up the ice as Mercer scored for Clarkson, after a set-up by Christine Lambert. The power play goal came at 11:23 of the third period.
The Friars pulled Bryant in favor of an extra skater with 2:04 left to play in the game, looking to even the score. However, Clarkson sealed the victory with an empty net goal at 19:04 when Bannon scored her second goal of the meeting for a 3-0 lead.
Bryant finished the game with 22 saves for the Friars, stopping all but 2 shots in the game. Tiley also recorded 22 saves in the win for the Golden Knights.
Clarkson outshot Providence 25-22 in the game, but the Friars controlled the shot advantage in the third period (12-3) as they looked to beat Tiley.
The Friars return to the ice Saturday, Oct. 18 when the team travels to play Syracuse. Puck drop is scheduled for 2:00pm.
