Despite outshooting the Crusaders, 10-4, in the first half, the Friars went into halftime with a one goal deficit.
Providence evened the score with 18:52 remaining on the clock in regulation when senior Mary Vercollone (Pembroke, Mass.) tallied her first points on the season. Vercollone struck the ball hard to the lower left-hand corner. Vercollone's unassisted strike from the 18 yard line reached the back of the net. This equalizer would send the game to overtime. The Friars outshot the Crusaders in the second half, 11-0.
The first session of overtime was scoreless on both ends of the field. The Friars recorded the only shot of the period. The second overtime period was scoreless with one shot recorded by Providence. The game ended in a, 1-1, tie.
