Mauermann scores two as Providence drops 3-2 game to UConn

PROVIDENCE, R.I. -- In its final non-conference game of the season, ninth-ranked Providence fell to Connecticut 3-2, on Tuesday night at Schneider Arena. A 58-save performance by Huskies' goaltender Matt Grogan was the difference in the game.

Junior Ross Mauermann was the only Friar who could find a way to beat Grogan in the game as he netted both Providence (15-8-5, 7-6-1 HEA) goals which included a goal scored in the final minute of play that brought the Friars within one. UConn notched a goal in each period, with Patrick Kirtland leading the way for the offense with a goal and an assist.

The Friars recorded a season-high 60 shots on goal, with Mauermann leading the way with 12 shots in the game, but Grogan made all but two saves for UConn (15-9-4, 12-6-3 AHA). Sophomore Jon Gillies made 23 stops in the Friar net.
