PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team recorded a 5-0 loss to the New Hampshire Wildcats on Friday Dec. 5 at Schneider Arena. With the Hockey East loss, the Friars record drops to 3-13-3 overall and 2-5-1 in conference play. New Hampshire now stands at 4-13-1 overall and 2-7-0 in the Hockey East.

New Hampshire grabbed a 1-0 lead at 2:51 of the first period. Jonna Curtis notched the Wildcats goal while Amy Schlagel recorded the sole assist.

Providence could not find a response for the Wildcats offense in the second period as New Hampshire scored 3 unanswered goals to take a 4-0 lead. Amy Boucher's breakaway goal at 6:19 opened the scoring in the frame. Kayla Mork connected a pass from behind the Friars net to Nicoline Jensen, who netted the third goal of the meeting. Sara Carlson completed the scoring at 11:04 of the period, shortly after a New Hampshire power play expired, for the 4-0 lead.

The Wildcats added a final goal, as Curtis scored her second goal of the game at :08 of the third period.

The Friars had a number of quality scoring chances in the game but Wilcats goalkeeper Vilma Vaattovaara kept all of the Friars chances out of the net. Vaattovaara finished the game with 30 saves, including a save on freshman Brooke Boquist (Thunder Bay, Ontario) during a second period power play as well as back-to-back stops on a late second period shorthanded opportunity by graduate student Stephanie Demars (Vermontville, N.Y.) and senior Beth Hanrahan (Poolesville, Md.).

Friars junior goaltender Allie Morse (Cottage Grove, Minn.) stopped 10 shots before junior Sarah Bryant (Bethlehem, Pa.) replaced her in net during the second period. Bryant made 11 saves in relief, allowing one goal.

Despite the loss, the Friars recorded 30 shots on goal in the game as opposed to New Hampshire's 26. Both teams were strong on the penalty kill as Providence successfully killed 5 minor penalties while New Hampshire went 4-for-4 while shorthanded.

The Friars cap off the first half of the season with a Hockey East game on Monday, Dec. 8 against Boston University at Walter Brown Arena. The match is scheduled for a 7:00 start.
