PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College women's ice hockey team fell to visiting Boston College, 3-1, Friday at Schneider Arena.

Providence made the initial breakthrough in the opening period. Just 2:46 in, senior winger Laura Veharanta (La Verne, Calif.) brought the puck into the offensive zone and roofed a wrist shot from the right circle for her second of the season.

BC answered back at 8:37 of the first period, when Eagle freshman Alex Carpenter corralled a deflected shot in front of the Friar net and slid home a backhand. The game was knotted, 1-1, after one.

The Eagles scored the eventual game-winner at 4:46 of the middle period. Senior captain Mary Restuccia stole the puck at her own blue line, raced in on a breakaway and beat the goaltender for the 2-1 advantage.

Boston College's Taylor Wasylk added an empty-netter late in the third to round out the scoring.

The Friars outshot BC 38-31. Senior goaltender Genevieve Lacasse (Kingston, Ontario) recorded 28 saves in the effort. Corinne Boyles made 37 stops for BC.

Providence returns to game action Tuesday, November 1 when it welcomes Yale to Schneider Arena. Face-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tickets are available by calling (401) 865 GO PC or by visiting Friars.com.
