PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The 15th-ranked Providence College men's hockey team tied the Clarkson Golden Knights on Friday, Oct. 21 at Schneider Arena. Providence moves to 1-2-1 overall and Clarkson moves to 2-2-1.

Hayden Hawkey (Parker, Colo.) made 20 stops to improve to 1-2-1 this season, while Clarkson's Jake Kielly made 43 saves to improve to 2-2-1.

After a scoreless first period, the Friars held the advantage in shots, outshooting the Golden Knights 14-7. Hawkey turned aside all seven shot he faced.

The Friars got on the board first on a power play goal only 32 seconds into the second period from Scott Conway (Baskingstoke, England). After an offensive zone face off, Brian Pinho (North Andover, Mass.) won the faceoff back to Jake Walman (Toronto, Ontario) on the point. Walman redirected the puck across the zone to Conway in the high slot, who took a one-timer that beat Clarkson's Jake Kielly and gave the Friars a 1-0 lead. The Conway goal marks his first goal as a Friar.

Clarkson responded at 9:22 when Jordan Schneider tapped a bouncing rebound in front of Hawkey, evening the score 1-1.

Providence took back the lead almost three minutes later when Brandon Duhaime (Parkland, Fla.) scored his first collegiate tally. Bryan Lemos (East Providence, R.I.) picked up a loose puck just inside the Friars offensive blue line and carried it down below the goal and passed to Duhaime in the slot. With his initial shot stopped, Duhaime followed up to finish the rebound at 11:59 of the second period.

Clarkson closed the gap yet again with 4:09 remaining in the second period with a power play goal from Sheldon Rempal after carrying the puck into the Friars' defensive zone and taking a wrist shot that beat Hawkey short side.

Just over five minutes into the third period, Clarkson took the lead for the first time of the night by way of Tyko Karjalainen's wrister under the crossbar.

The Friars tied that game at 3-3 with 3:46 remaining in regulation on the power play when Josh Wilkins (Raleigh, N.C.) scored his first collegiate goal off a slap shot just below the faceoff dot to the right of the net. He was assisted by Jacob Bryson (London, Ontario) and Spenser Young (Brentwood, N.H.).

At the end of regulation, the Friars led the Golden Knights in shots, 46-23. Wilkins boasted the best bid in the extra frame as he was in alone on a breakaway, but his five-hole attempted was turned away by Kielly.

The Friars are back in action tomorrow night at Schneider Arena for a 7:05 p.m. puck drop against the No. 12/13 St. Lawrence Saints.
