Sept. 14, 2007
PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- Freshman Marra Whaley (Rocky Hill, Conn.) scored her first goal in the sixth minute of the game to give Providence a 1-0 victory over the Hartford Hawks Friday afternoon at Glay Field. The victory is the first for PC on the season as they improved to 1-3-2. The Hawks fall to 0-2-2 for the year.
Christie Gent (Plantation, Fla.) sent the Friars' first corner kick of the game towards the Hawk goal and after the ball took a bounce in the air, Whaley deflected it into the back of the net. Gent was credited with her second assist of the season.
The Friars created many very close opportunites including two shots back to back in the 42nd minute of the first half. Sophomore Greta Houlihan (Belair, Md.) took a shot that went wide of the net, but was picked back up by PC junior Victoria Neff (Fairfield, Conn.). Neff sent a shot right on goal before it was saved by Hartford goalie Elizabeth Cook.
In the 56th minute, another Friar freshman, Lindsey Trubia (Mystic, Conn.) took a pass from Neff and took a shot that Cook deflected away before it could touch the net. PC's Katelin Blaine (Warwick, N.Y.) had another great opportunity in the 81st minute as her shot sailed just over the top crossbar.
Hartford's best opportunity in the game for a goal came in the 64th minute as Kacey Busque sent a corner kick at the net where teammate Meagan Riemer sent a shot that went just wide. Hartford ended the game with two corner kicks while Providence had three. The Hawks also had another great chance a few moments later in the 72nd minute when Laura Guigli took a shot that was saved by Friar goalkeeper Laura Elfers (Deer Park, N.Y.).
Elfers recorded her first shutout of the season and made two saves during the game. Cook ended the game with four saves. The Friars outshot the Hawks 18-8. Providence continues their homestand on Sunday September 16th at 1:00 against the Quinnipac Bobcats at Glay Field.
