CHESTNUT HILL, Mass. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team traveled to Chestnut Hill, Mass to play No. 8 Boston College on Wednesday, Nov. 7, where the Friars fell, 6-1, to the Eagles. The loss moves the Friars record to 6-4-1 and 4-1-0 in Hockey East.
After killing off a penalty the Friars were first on the board with a goal from junior Rebecca Morse (Westfield, N.J.) at 11:36 of the first period. Morse, with her second on the season, scored from the top of the circle on the left side of the ice after blasting home a shot that went high glove side on Eagle goaltender Corinne Boyles.
Freshman Sarah Bryant (Bethleham, Pa.) made a big save on a two-on-one back door play to keep the Friars ahead with under six minutes to play in the period. Bryant finished the period with 13 saves.
The Eagles capitalized on a power-play opportunity midway through the second period, when freshman Dana Trivigno notched her third goal on the season off a rebound shot from freshman Lexi Bender.
Boston College continued its success on the power-play, when Morse took a checking penalty at 13:31 of the second period. Sophomore Alex Carpenter converted a Friar turnover into a power-play goal at 14:14 for her seventh goal on the season.
Before the teams went to their respective locker rooms the Eagles extended their lead to 3-1, with a goal from sophomore Emily Field on the back door. Despite the three goal period from the Eagles, Bryant made 13 saves.
The Eagles continued their scoring streak into the third period when freshman Haley Skarupa of Boston College notched her fourth goal on the season with a shot that beat Bryant high glove side giving the Eagles a 4-1 lead. Sophomore Kate Leary added onto the Eagle lead with a goal at 12:19. Bryant tallied 32 saves that included two break-a-ways from the Eagles in 51:38 minutes of work for the Friars.
Freshman Allie Morse (Cottage Grove, Minn.) entered the game at 8:22 of the third period for the Friars before being cracked by the Eagle offense at 5:25. Freshman Meghan Grieves tallied her third goal on the season with a goal just below the face-off circle on the left side of the ice to give the Eagles their 6-1 win. Morse finished the game with six saves.
