Box Score

BURLINGTON, VT. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team fell to host Vermont Friday, 3-2, at Gutterson Field House.

The game was knotted, 2-2, until 4:58 remained in the third period. With a delayed penalty coming against PC, a scramble ensued in front of the Friar goal. Finally, Vermont junior Emily Walsh snuck the loose puck through a maze of legs and sticks and into the back of the net for the game winner.

The Friars had just tied the game, 2-2, at the 10:13 mark of the third. Sophomore defenseman Rebecca Morse played the puck to herself off the neutral zone boards and raced towards the Catamount net. When her shot was turned aside, Friar freshman Allison Micheletti (Inver Grove Heights, Minn.) hammered home the rebound for her first collegiate strike.

The game started with a scoreless first period. It was 7:11 into the second when Providence took the initial lead. Senior Abby Gauthier (Lynn, Mass.) fed classmate Laura Veharanta behind the UVM net. Veharanta stepped out just to the left of the goal and scored from a sharp angle, slicing the puck between the goalie and the near post. It was her first of the year.

Seven minutes later, Vermont answered. Catamount junior Erin Wente broke down the right side and scored with a backhand to tie the game, 1-1.

Vermont then took a 2-1 edge just 40 seconds into the third period on a score by freshman Klara Myren.

Providence goaltender Genevieve Lacasse (Kingston, Ontario) made 19 saves in the game, including a stop on a penalty shot 16:51 into the second period. Vermont's Kelci Lanthier stopped 30 shots as the Friars outshot the hosts, 32-22.

The same two teams will meet again Saturday, October 22 at Gutterson Field House. Face-off is scheduled for 4 p.m. and the game can be heard on Friars.com
