STORRS, CONN. - Genevieve Lacasse (Kingston, Ontario) recorded her 14th-career shutout and the Providence College women's ice hockey team defeated host UConn, 2-0, Saturday afternoon.
The shutout moves Lacasse past Jana Bugden '07 on the all-time list. Though PC did not keep shutout records in the seventies and eighties, it is believed that Bugden held the all-time mark - a mark that now belongs to Lacasse.
The senior netminder was not tested much Saturday, facing only nine shots on the afternoon. The PC attack fired 32 on UConn goalie Nicole Paniccia.
The Friars earned all the offense they needed in the second period. At the 7:08 mark, sophomore Corinne Buie (Edina, Minn.) continued her strong campaign with a short handed score, courtesy an assist from junior Jessica Vella (Pickering, Ontario). The goal was Buie's fifth of the young season.
Ten minutes later, at 17:04, Providence added insurance courtesy a delayed penalty. With the referee's arm in the air and an extra attacker on, senior defenseman Jennifer Friedman (San Gabriel, Calif.) basted home her first of the season. Senior Ashley Cottrell (Sterling Heights, Mich.) and junior Nicole Anderson (Jordan, Minn.) assisted on the play.
Lacasse is already the program's career saves leader (2,841), as well as the record holder for saves in a season (948). She is now just five wins away from tying Bugden's career win total of 58, and ten shy of Bugden's mark for 115 games played. In short, by the time she graduates in May, she will have every major goaltending mark in the program's record books.
The Friars will return to the ice tomorrow, November 13, when they welcome New Hampshire to Schneider Arena. Face-off with the Wildcats is at 2 p.m. Tickets are available by calling (401) 865 GOPC or by visiting Friars.com.
