PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team tied UConn, 4-4, on Sunday afternoon at Schneider Arena. Senior Brooke Simpson (Boxborough, Mass.) netted a career-high two goals for the Friars, including the game-tying goal.

Providence retaliated quickly, 00:57 into the second period, when freshman Brooke Boquist (Thunder Bay, Ontario) scored her first collegiate goal to tie the game (1-1). Sophomore Cassidy Carels (Bruxelles, Manitoba) set Boquist up on a nice feed in front of the net. Sophomore Liv Halvorson (Richfield, Minn.) also assisted on the play.

The Huskies started their comeback 16 seconds into the third when Emily Snodgrass scored off of a turnover to inch closer to the Friars (3-2). The equalizer came two minutes later (2:33) when Margaret Zimmer scored on a pass from Cook to tie the game at three. UConn scored again to take a 4-3 lead when Leah Lum scored with a feed from Lindsay Roethke. With the clock winding down, and Providence junior goalie Sarah Bryant (Bethlehem, Pa.) pulled, Simpson connected for a goal with four seconds left (19:56) on a feed from Carels. Hanrahan also registered an assist on the goal.

Overtime ended scoreless as the game remained tied at 4-4. Providence generated two shots in the extra period while UConn only had one.
