PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team dropped a 3-0 decision Sunday, bowing to #9 Mercyhurst at Schneider Arena.
For the Friars, senior goaltender Genevieve Lacasse halted a season-best 45 shots in the effort. Providence was outshot, 48-30.
Mercyhurst took an early, 1-0 lead 4:43 into the opening period. While on the power play, Laker forward Jess Jones blasted a slapshot from the near point that was blocked. The ricochet found the stick of senior Bailey Bram who quickly converted from the right of the slot. It was Bram's fourth goal of the weekend as she tallied a hat trick in the Laker's win over Providence on Saturday.
The Lakers extended the cushion at the 5:22 mark of the second, when defenseman Jill Szandzik stepped into a loose puck at the high slot and delivered a slapshot to the back of the net. 2-0 Lakers after two.
Mercyhurst's Kelley Steadman added an insurance goal in the form of an empty-netter at 17:39 of the third.
The Friars return to action Friday, October 21, when they open up Hockey East play at Vermont. Face-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. and the game can be heard on Friars.com. Providence returns home on Friday, October 28 when it hosts Boston College in a rematch of last spring's Hockey East semifinal. Face-off is 7 p.m. and tickets are available by calling (401) 865 GOPC or by visiting Friars.com.
