BURLINGTON, Vt. - The Providence College women’s ice hockey team defeated the Vermont Catamounts, 4-1, on Nov. 13 at Gutterson Field House. The Friars improved to 2-7-0 (2-3-0 WHEA), while the Catamounts moved to 2-9-0 (2-3-0 WHEA).
Alanna Serviss (Chicago, Ill.) started in net for the Friars and made 11 stops in the first period.
Providence started the second period on the penalty kill. Just 21 seconds into the second period, Madison Sansone (Lockport, N.Y.) registered her first short-handed tally of the season. Cassidy Carels (Bruxelles, Manitoba) rushed the puck into the Vermont zone and crashed the net. Sansone picked up the Carels rebound and buried the puck to give the Friars a 1-0 lead. Lexi Romanchuk (San Jose, Calif.) picked up her second assist of the season on the play.
Providence made it 2-0 at the 7:15 mark, after Ariana Buxman (Glenwood Springs, Colo.) faked a point shot and passed it to Blair Parent (Anoka, Minn.) in the slot. Parent moved the puck over to a wide open Brittney Thunstrom (Coon Rapids, Minn.) whose one timer beat Vermont’s Madison Litchfield.
With five seconds remaining in the period, Vermont took advantage of a 2-on-1 opportunity and Dayna Colang put it past Serviss, to cut the Friars lead to 2-1.
The Friars opened the third period with a second goal from Sansone. Emily Landry (Orangeville, Ontario) and Romachuk both registered an assist on the play. Sasnone skated in on a fast break, powered the puck through Litchfield’s glove and gave the Friars a 3-1 lead.
With just under eight minutes remaining in regulation, Vermont contested a no goal call on the ice. The play was reviewed and the call on the ice stood, the Friars maintained a 3-1 lead.
Vermont pulled Litchfield for the extra attacker with 1:50 left in regulation and pressured the Friar defensive zone. Christina Putigna (Grimsby, Ont.) blocked two shots to help Providence keep their lead. Carels broke the puck out and fed Putigna along the wall. She beat the defender as she entered the zone and fed a wide open Brooke Boquist (Thunder Bay, Ontario) across the zone. Boquist skated the puck in for an empty net goal and secured the Friars’ second win of the season.
Serviss notched her first collegiate win and made 22 saves.
The Friars are back in action on Nov. 14 at 4:00 p.m. at Gutterson Field House to close the Hockey East series against the Catamounts.
