BURLINGTON, Vt. - The Providence College women’s ice hockey team was defeated, 4-3, by the Vermont Catamounts on Nov. 14. A Catamount goal with 3 seconds remaining lifted the Catamounts over the Friars. With the Friar loss, Providence moves to 2-8-0 (2-4-0 WHEA) and Vermont improves to 3-9-0 (3-3-0 WHEA).
Alanna Serviss (Chicago, Ill.) started in net for the Friars and made 11 stops in the first period.
Providence got on the board first with 2:26 to go in the first period. Cassidy Carels (Bruxelles, Manitoba) collected the puck on the half-wall of the Vermont zone while her teammates rushed the blue line. Carels crossed the puck to Christina Putigna (Grismby, Ontario) who moved the puck back over to a trailing Brooke Boquist (Thunder Bay, Ontario). Boquist quickly shot the puck past Vermont’s Molly Depew’s glove to give the Friars a 1-0 lead.
The Friars took a penalty and went on the kill with 1:44 remaining in the period. After a cluster in front of the Friar net, Vermont’s Alyssa Gorecki slipped one in and tied the score at 1-1.
Providence recorded a power play goal with 9:34 remaining in the second period. After a scrum in front of the Vermont net, Putigna picked up the puck and fed Boquist from behind the net. Boquist moved the puck across the slot to a wide open Madison Sansone (Lockport, N.Y.), who one-timed it home and lifted the Friars to a 2-1 lead.
The Friars started out the third period with a goal from Sansone, who has scored six goals in the past three games. Lauren Klein (Shoreview, Minn.) fed Danielle Hardy (Nanaimo, British Columbia) who was taken down in the slot. Hardy passed it over to Sansone who sniped for her second goal of the day and a 3-1 lead.
Vermont responded with a goal from Bella Webster, to make it 3-2 with 11:25 remaining in the period.
The teams battled back and forth but Vermont squirted a puck past Serviss for a fourth goal with just three seconds remaining in regulation. Taylor Willard scored the power play goal for the Catamounts.
Putigna added two assists on the game and has recorded seven points in the Friars last three games.
The Friars are back in action on Nov. 21 at 2:00 pm in Durham, N.H. to face off against the University of New Hampshire.
