St. Rita’s fan section came in strong, loud and like a scene from “Braveheart,” complete with blue face paint. 

The team’s fans would leave quieter and much more reserved than they entered. 

On Feb. 9, the No. 1 seed Providence took on the No. 4 seeded St. Rita in the semi-final round of the Kennedy Cup series. St. Rita hosted  Providence at SouthWest Ice Arena in Crestwood for the second game of the series. Providence proved victorious by the end of the night with a 2-0 win, and swept the series with two back-to-back shutouts.
