ORONO, Maine -- The University of Maine women's ice hockey skated into extra minutes on Sunday evening for the second time this weekend, which ended in another 1-1 tie with Providence College. With the two ties, the Black Bears (3-7-2, 0-4-2) notched their first two points in Hockey East. The Friars are now 3-5-2, 2-1-2 in Hockey East action.
After a scoreless first period Providence got on the board with a goal from Kristin Gigliotti, her second of the weekend. The goal was assisted by Mari Pehkonen. With Maine down 1-0 late in the second Providence was called for body-checking to give the Black Bears the one skater advantage. Senior defenseman Kelly Law (Markham, Ontario) took a shot from the point which was deflected in by Sonia Corriveau (Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec) to even the score at 19:45 of the period. Sophomore Chantal Jaillet (St. Eduard de Kent, N.B.) fed the puck to Kelly Law. The goal was Corriveau's fifth of the season.
