Four different Friars scored as the Providence College women's ice hockey team defeated host New Hampshire, 4-2, Sunday at the Whittemore Center. Providence has now won five consecutive games, the team's longest win streak this season.

Earlier this week the Friars faced off against No. 8 Boston College, where Providence fell 6-1 to the Eagles on Wednesday, Nov. 7 at Conte Forum. The Friars were first on the board with a goal from junior Rebecca Morse (Westfield, N.J.) at 11:36 in the first period. Morse, with her second goal on the season, scored from the top of the circle on the left side of the ice after blasting home a shot that went high glove side on Eagle goaltender, Corinne Boyles. Freshman Sarah Bryant (Bethleham, Pa.) made 32 stops on 37 shots for the Friars in 51:38 minutes of work.

The last time the two teams faced off was Jan. 28 and 29, when the Friars hosted Connecticut before traveling to Storrs, Conn. to finish the back-to-back series. Providence swept the weekend series with 2-0 and 5-2 wins over the Huskies.
