PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The Providence College women's hockey team was defeated by Robert Morris, 2-1, on Oct. 1, 2016 in the Friars' home opener. Three Robert Morris power play goals lifted the Colonials past the Friars. The Friars move to 0-2-0 and the Colonials improve to 1-0-0.

The Colonials started the scoring off 4:30 into the first period on the power play by way of Amber Rennie.

The Friars scored two goals in the second period. Cassidy MacPherson (Oakville, Ontario) scored a shorthanded goal. Cassidy Carels (Bruxells, Manitoba) picked up a loose puck and carried it into the Friars' attacking zone and went in one-on-one with Robert Morris' goaltender. MacPherson trailed the play and skated onto the rebound for her first goal of the season at the 11:29 mark of the second period.

Providence's Brooke Boquist (Thunder Bay, Ontario) tallied her first of the season when Arianna Reid (Lakeville, Minn.) broke out the puck and moved it along to Madison Sansone (Lockport, N.Y.). Sansone backhanded the puck to Boquist in the neutral zone who carried the puck into the offensive zone and shot the puck through Robert Morris' Lauren Bailey nearly 14 minutes into the period.

After two periods the Friars led the Colonials, 2-1.

The Colonials scored two more power play goals in the third period to take the game, 3-2. Jaycee Gebhard scored with nine minutes remaining in regulation and then again with 49 seconds remaining by way of Maeve Garvery.

Providence outshot the Colonials, 31-21. Madison Myers (Colchester, Vt.) made 18 saves.

The Friars take on Robert Morris on Sunday, Oct. 2 at Schneider Arena at 12:30 p.m. to finish the non-conference series.
