The Providence College softball team was defeated, 7-3, by Boston University Wednesday afternoon in Boston, Mass. With the loss, the Friars fell to 15-12-1, while the Terriers improved to 15-11.
The Friars took a 1-0 lead in the first inning when sophomore Katelyn Revens (Warwick, R.I.) reached on an infield hit, stole second base and advanced to third on a past ball.
