PROVIDENCE, R.I. -
The Providence College women’s hockey team was defeated by the Princeton University Tigers on Oct. 23, 7-3. Providence moves to 3-5-0 and Princeton improves 2-0-0.
Providence took the lead early in the game, 3:17 into the first period. Blair Parent (Blaine, Minn.) scored her second goal of the season on the power-play. Christina Putigna (Grimsby, Ontario) held possession at the top of the left face-off circle and moved the puck to Avery Fransoo (North Battleford, Saskatchewan) on the point. Fransoo’s shot made its way through traffic and on the back door for Parent to bang home.
Princeton responded with a power-play goal of their own at 11:50 from Carly Bullock, knotting the game at 1-1.
Princeton’s Cassidy Tucker took the lead 1:38 into the second period.
The Friars responded with 1:33 remaining in the second period, when Brooke Boquist (Thunder Bay, Ontario) scored her fourth goal of the season off of a two-on-one. Rachel Rockwell (Broadview Heights, Ohio) cleared the puck from the defensive zone and to Madison Sansone (Lockport, N.Y.) in the neutral zone. Boquist and Sansone skated into the offensive zone. Sansone moved the puck over to Boquist across the crease for a tap-in goal.

Kate Friesen (Altona, Manitoba) cut Princeton’s lead to 5-3 after scoring her first career shorthanded goal at 14:24 of the third period. Danielle Hardy (Naniamo, British Columbia) won the faceoff to Kathleen McHugh (Billerica, Mass.) on the top of the faceoff dot.
