The Sabres ended Providence's eight-game winning streak with a 20-7 defensive struggle

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — South Meck hosted Providence in a battle of South Meck 8 contenders. The Panthers entered Friday’s contest winners of eight-straight games, one win shy of tying a school record for consecutive wins. South Meck’s defense showed up to play Friday, containing Providence’s high-powered offense all night long. At the half, South Meck led 13-7 before lightning came in and the game was delayed for nearly two hours.

When play resumed, the Sabres picked up where they left off, smothering Providence’s offense. The Sabres went on to win 20-7, giving the Sabres an outside shot at a South Meck 8 championship pending next week’s results.
