WORCESTER, Mass. - The Holy Cross women's hockey team fell to Providence, 1-0, Friday night at the Hart Center Rink.

The Crusaders outshot the Friars, 26-23. It marks the second straight game that they have done so. In the first period, Holy Cross held the advantage in shots, 11-7, and came up with a handful of legitimate scoring chances on the power play.

Providence rebounded in the second period and was able to push across a goal with under three minutes to play in the period. Chloe Gonsalves found Bailey Burton for the tally. The Crusaders outshot the Friars again in the third, 9-5, but again weren't able to get any to go.


INSIDE THE NUMBERS:

- Five Crusaders tied with a team-high three shots.
