Providence took a 1-0 lead in the seventh minute when sophomores Catherine Zimmerman (Madison, N.J.) and Lauren Elia (Erie, Pa.) connected to find the back of the net. Elia crossed a pass from the right side that was buried by Zimmerman to notch her second goal of the season. The remainder of the half was scoreless and the Friars carried their 1-0 lead into halftime.
The Blue Demons increased their pressure in the second half, but could not find the back of the net. The Friars' defense kept DePaul from working their way onto the scoreboard. Providence held its 1-0 lead until the final whistle to notch its first BIG EAST win of the 2013 campaign.
Junior keeper Jessica Goudreault (Sherborn, Mass.) earned her second consecutive start of the season. She played all 90 minutes in goal and tallied four saves to notch her first shutout of the season.
