HANOVER, N.H. - The tenth-ranked Providence College women's ice hockey team fell on the road to No. 9 Dartmouth Tuesday night, 3-2, at Thompson Arena.
With the game tied, 2-2, 5:27 into the third period, the Big Green broke on a 2-on-1 break. Senior winger Amanda Trunzo kept the puck and scored on a wrist shot from the left face-off circle, giving Dartmouth the 3-2 cushion it would not relinquish.
The night started with both teams enjoying several quality chances in a wide-open first period. The Friars broke through at the 10:17 mark. Junior Christie Jensen (Delta, B.C) unleashed a slapshot from the high slot. The rocket was redirected in front by classmate Abby Gauthier (Lynn, Mass.) into the back of the net for a 1-0 Friar lead. It was Gauthier's third strike of the season.
Four minutes later, the Big Green answered. A shot in the slot hit a Friar and bounced toward the right point. With room to attack, Dartmouth sophomore Sasha Nanji pounced on the loose puck and blasted a slapshot top shelf to tie the game, 1-1.
Dartmouth gained the lead two minutes into the middle period. A Big Green dump in took a wild bounce off the boards, rolling in front where it greeted charging forwards. After an initial stop, junior Kelly Foley hammered home a rebound for the 2-1 edge.
Shorthanded, the Friars responded, courtesy their own 2-on-1 rush at the 7:06 mark. With junior Kate Bacon as decoy cutting toward the front, sophomore Jessica Cohen kept the puck at the right face-off circle and went top shelf, near side for her second goal of the year. The Friars' third short-handed score of the year re-knotted the game, 2-2.
Providence goaltender Genevieve Lacasse made 37 saves in the effort.
The Friars return to action this Saturday, November 20 when they host Hockey East rival Northeastern at Schnieder Arena. Face-off is scheduled for 2 p.m. For tickets, contact the PC ticket office at (401) 865 GOPC.
