Jon Gilles makes 37 saves, Providence beats Quinnipiac 4-0 in East Region semifinal

BRIDGEPORT, Conn. - Jon Gillies made 37 saves and third-seeded Providence beat second-seeded Quinnipiac 4-0 on Friday night in an NCAA East Region semifinal.

Mark Jankowski, Anthony Florentino, Shane Luke, and Trevor Mingoia scored for Providence (22-10-6). The Friars led 1-0 after the first, and scored three second-period goals.

Providence is making its 10th tournament appearance, but the first since 2001. It was the Friar's first win in the tournament since 1991.

The Friars will play top-seeded Union on Saturday in the regional championship game. The Dutchmen beat Vermont 5-2 in the first semifinal.

Quinnipiac finished the season 24-10-6. This was in just the third NCAA tournament for the Bobcats, who lost to in-state rival Yale in last year's national championship game.

Quinnipiac's Michael Garteig made 21 saves.
