NEW HAVEN, CONN. - Friar junior Laura Veharanta (La Verne, Calif.) scored two goals within ten seconds, leading the Providence College women's ice hockey team to a 3-1 victory over host Yale Tuesday night. The win improves PC's overall record to 7-2-1.
It was Veharanta who set the tone early, scoring at 4:17 of the first period, and again just ten seconds later at 4:27. The first strike, Veharanta's fourth of the season, was set up by a face-off win from classmate Ashley Cottrell (Sterling Heights, Mich.). Yale won the ensuing face-off at center ice, but Veharanta capitalized on a turnover in front of the Bulldog net to tally her fifth of the season, and stake the black-and-white to a lightning-quick, 2-0 lead.
Yale's Ayssa Zupon cut the home team's deficit to 2-1 at the 4:29 mark of the middle period, but the Bulldogs could not get the equalizer and were outshot, 39-15.
The Friars added insurance in the final minute of regulation, when junior Kate Bacon (Chanhassen, Minn.) added an empty-netter. It was Bacon's ninth goal through the first ten games of the season.
Providence junior Genevieve Lacasse, named Hockey East Goaltender of the Month earlier in the day, stopped 14 shots to earn the decision.
Providence returns to Hockey East play this Saturday, November 6, when it visits No. 5 Boston University. Face-off is scheduled for 3 p.m. at Walter Brown Arena. It will be the second meeting between the two programs in eight days. The Friars and Terriers skated to a 2-2 tie on Friday, October 29, at Schnieder Arena.
The Friars next home game is Sunday, November 7, when Maine comes to town. The start time with the Black Bears is 2 p.m. Tickets are available by calling the Providence College ticket office at 401-865-GOPC.
