BOSTON, Mass. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team fell, 7-1, to No. 7 Boston University on Friday, Nov. 16 at the Walter Brown Arena. With the loss the Friars move to an overall record of 7-5-2 and a conference record of 5-2-1.
The Terriers were first on the board with a goal from senior Jenelle Kohanchuk, her fourth on the season, at 13:48 of the first period. Kohanchuk put the past freshman goaltender Sarah Bryant (Bethlehem, Pa.) off a pass from junior Marie-Philip Poulin. The Friars successfully killed off three penalties to keep the score 1-0 for the duration of the first period. Bryant finished the period with 12 saves, while Terrier goaltender Kerrin Sperry finished the period with three.
Boston University extended their lead 3:37 into the second period on a goal from freshman Sarah Lefort. It was Lefort's ninth goal of the season that gave the Terriers a 2-0 lead. Poulin notched her second assist of the game on the play. The goal was the first of four for the Terriers during the second period.
At 6:35 of the second period the Friars took a penalty that led to a Terrier penalty-shot, taken by senior Jill Cardella. Bryant made a big save to keep the game 3-0 in BU's favor.
After forward Terrier Lefort took a body checking call at 13:39, Poulin capitalized on a short-handed bid at 15:07 of the second period. It was her second goal and fourth point of the game, that put the Terriers ahead 4-0.
Sophomore Beth Hanrahan (Poolesville, Md.) tallied her fourth goal of the season off a rebound shot taken by senior Nicole Anderson (Jordan, Minn.) with 3:17 remaining in the period. Hanrahan closed the Terrier lead to 4-1. Shortly after the Providence goal the Terriers tallied one more to extend their lead to 5-1 before heading to the locker rooms. Bryant finished the period with 12 saves, for a total of 18 saves in 39:53 minutes of work.
Freshman goaltender Allie Morse (Cottage Grove, Minn.) entered the game for the Friars at the start of the third period. The Terriers quickly added on to their 5-1 lead with a goal 1:50 into the third period from sophomore Shannon Stoneburgh.
The Friars continued to battle but could not find the back of the net. Morse made two big saves before the Terrier offense struck one last time at 18:02 to round out the scoring at 7-1. Morse finished the game with eight saves on 10 shots in 20:00 minutes of work. The Friars were outshot by their ranked opponent, 33-20.
