PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team recorded a 6-2 loss against the Yale University Bulldogs on Friday, Oct. 24 at Schneider Arena. With the non-conference loss, the Friars fall to 0-6-1 on the season while Yale is now 1-0-0.
Providence trailed 1-0 after the first twenty minutes of play against the Bulldogs. Yale forward Stephanie Mock completed an odd-man rush through the Friars zone as she sent a pass from Eden Murray past Providence junior goaltender Allie Morse (Cottage Grove, Minn.) at 19:23. The goal was also assisted by Taylor Marchin.
Yale added two more goals in the second period, as Gretchen Tarrant and Krista Yip-Chuck each netted a goal. Tarrant doubled the lead for Yale when she entered the Friars zone, after receiving a break-out pass from Stephanie Mock, skated up the wing and fired a low shot that beat Morse at 6:59 of the second period. Yip-Chuck completed the scoring for the period at 19:37 when she capitalized on a breakaway, tucking the puck behind Morse for a 3-0 Yale lead. Marchin registered assists on both goals, as she had a part in setting up all three goals.
The Bulldogs offense carried into the third period as the team added two more goals in the first half of the period. Eden Murray and Courtney Pensavalle each tallied a goal for a 5-0 Yale advantage. Providence responded as senior Brooke Simpson (Boxborough, Mass.) got the Friars on the board at 10:43 when she scored a power play goal. Simpson's first goal of the season came after when she put the puck past Yale goalie Jaimie Leonoff after a scramble for the loose puck in front of net. Sophomore Cassidy Carels (Bruxelles, Manitoba) assisted on the goal.
Before the Friars could mount a comeback, Hanna Astrom scored at 12:05 of the period to once again widen the Friars deficit. Providence would find the back of the net once more before the conclusion of the game, to make the final score 6-2. Senior Haley Frade (Marion, Mass.) also scored while with the man advantage at 16:07. Carels tallied her second assist of the game. Junior Lexi Romanchuk (San Jose, Calif.) also recorded an assist.
Morse finished the game with 24 saves for Providence in the loss while Leonoff stopped 21 shots in the win for Yale. The Friars were outshot, 30-23, in the game.
Both Friars goals were scored on the power play, as the team went 2-for-4 while on the player advantage. Providence's penalty kill also had a solid game as the team killed off all three penalties it was assessed.
The Friars and the Bulldogs will play the second half of the home-and-home series tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 25 at Yale. The game is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m.
