DURHAM, N.H. - The Providence College women’s ice hockey team defeated the New Hampshire Wildcats, 4-1, on Nov. 22. Four freshman collected six points on the game to help the Friars over New Hampshire. Providence improved to 3-9-0 (3-5-0 WHEA), while New Hampshire moved to 3-12-0 (3-8-0 WHEA).

Madison Myers (Colchester, Vt.) earned her second win of the season with 21 saves.

After Myers seeing 13 shots in the first period, Christina Putigna (Grimsby, Ontario) skate in on a two-on-one and took a quick wrist shot that beat New Hampshire’s Kyra Smith’s glove. Putigna was assisted by Arianna Reid (Lakeville, Minn.) The Friars took a 1-0 lead with 24 seconds remaining in the first period.

The Friars capitalized on a New Hampshire penalty with a power play goal from Kate Friesen (Altona, Maintoba), recording her second power-play goal of the season. The goal came from a combination effort of three freshman, after Emily Landry (Orangeville, Ontario) collected the puck on the half wall and moved it up to Danielle Hardy (Nanaimo, British Columbia) on the point. Hardy fed Friesen across the blue line, who took a slap-shot that fluttered in over Smith’s shoulder.

New Hampshire tallied their lone goal at the 6:31 mark in the third period, from Kate Hasslett, cutting the Friar lead to 2-1.

Madison Sansone (Lockport, N.Y.) continued her five game point streak with the Friars’ third goal of the game. Hardy entered the offensive zone and passed to Blair Parent (Anoka, Minn.) in the slot. Parent caused a scrum in front of the net and fed a wide open Sansone. Sansone skated through the slot and slipped the puck through Smith’s five hole and lifted the Friars to a 3-1 lead.



With just over four minutes remaining in regulation New Hampshire pulled Smith for the extra man advantage. The teamwork of Brooke Boquist (Thunder Bay, Ontario) and Putigna broke the puck out of the Friar defensive zone. Putigna collected her second point of the day and Boquist scored her third goal of the weekend.

The Friars are back in action at 7:00 p.m. on Nov. 25, facing off against No. 2 Boston College in Chestnut Hill, Mass.
