BOSTON - The Providence Friars (6-2-2, 3-0-0 WHEA) scored two goals in each period and held off a late Northeastern (5-5-1, 3-2-0 WHEA) rally to earn a weekend sweep of the No. 7 Huskies with a 6-4 victory on Sunday afternoon at Matthews Arena.
Junior Kasidy Anderson led the Northeastern attack with two power-play goals, while senior McKenna Brand and freshman Skylar Fontaine also found the back of the net.
Kate Friesen dished out three assists for Providence, pacing six players with multi-point performances, including a two-goal effort by Brooke Boquist.
Providence struck first just 1:26 into the game when Cassidy MacPherson found Maureen Murphy open at the top of the left circle for a shot that snuck inside the left post.
The Friars doubled the lead at 16:18 of the opening frame when Chloe Gonsalves' shot from the left point whizzed through traffic and over the shoulder of Brittany Bugalski (seven saves) to make it 2-0.
Northeastern cut the deficit in half just 17 seconds later. Denisa Krizova poked a loose puck to Veronika Pettey, who quickly shifted it to McKenna Brand between the circles. Brand cut to her left and ripped a twisted wrister into the upper right corner of the net at 16:35.
Providence re-established its two-goal cushion 58 seconds into the second period when Brooke Boquist won a race to a loose puck in the NU zone, and beat Bugalski on a wrap-around at the right post to make it 3-1.
PC pushed the lead to 4-1 with a power-play goal at 14:55 of the second stanza when Christina Putigna wristed a shot past freshman netminder Aerin Frankel, through traffic, from the right faceoff dot.
The Huskies again whittled away at the scoreline when Anderson scored the first of two straight power-play goals early in the third period. After taking a feed from Lauren Kelly in the left corner, Anderson wheeled into the high slot and wristed a shot inside the left post from between the circles to make it 4-2.
Anderson struck again at 9:12, again on the power-play, when she collected a rebound off a Kelly shot, and tucked it past PC netminder Madison Myers (38 saves) to cut the Providence lead to 4-3.
The Friars responded at 14:08 of the third period when Boquist snapped a shot by Frankel from between the circles to push the score to 5-3.
Northeastern made it 5-4 just 1:38 later when Skylar Fontaine went coast-to-coast, before firing a shot by Myers from the left circle at 15:46.
With the NU net empty in the final seconds, Providence tacked on an insurance tally when Madison Sansone fluttered a shot into the cage from center ice to seal the win with two seconds showing on the third period clock.
