BOSTON, MASS. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team fell to No. 5 Boston University today, 4-1, at Walter Brown Arena. The Terriers scored four unanswered goals, three within roughly three minutes, to earn the victory.
The Friars controlled play in the first period, and earned a 1-0 cushion after the opening 20 minutes. The Friar strike came at the 5:30 mark. Goalie Genevieve Lacasse (Scarborough, Ontario) had possession and caught the Terriers in a line change. Lacasse fired a pass to the left wing side of the neutral zone and connected with junior Ashley Cottrell (Sterling Heights, Mich.). Cottrell, with room to work, skated to the left face-off circle and fired home a wrist shot, top shelf, for a 1-0 Friar lead. It was Cottrell's third of the season.
It was all Terriers in the middle period, as the hosts scored four times without answer. At the 8:03 mark, BU captain Holly Lorms skated into the slot area, with room, and beat Lacasse to knot the game, 1-1. Then disaster struck for the Friar Faithful, as BU lit the lamp three more times within a span of 3:14.
Trouble started, oddly enough, when BU's Kaleigh Fratkin was called for a five minute major at 14:26 of the second. Instead of enjoying the extended power play, three Friar penalties nullified the advantage and created plenty of open ice for the speedy Terriers.
BU freshman Louise Warren scored from the slot to make it 2-1 hosts at 16:41. Just 1:15 later, graduate Catherine Ward collected a deflection at the right face-off circle and beat Lacasse for a 3-1 lead. Then, with just five seconds remaining in the period, BU's Kathryn Miller fired a slapshot from the right point that was deflected down and into the bottom left of the Friar goal, rounding out the scoring at 4-1.
Lacasse made 41 stops in the losing effort.
The Friars return to action tomorrow, November 7, to host Maine. Face-off at Schneider Arena is set for 2 p.m. Tickets are available by calling the PC ticket office at (401) 865- GOPC.
