No. 10 Denison tops Lions

Drew Newman

No. 10 Denison opened the 2013 season on Saturday with a 19-2 victory over Mount St. Joseph.  DU was led by sophomore Nick Caravana who posted a career-high six points (3 goals; 3 assists).

Mount St. Joseph actually jumped out to a 1-0 lead at the 8:10 mark of the first quarter when Patrick McClanahan scored a man-up goal.  Denison first-year Blair Farinholt responded just over a minute later with his first career goal.  That would spark a 10-0 run for the Big Red that would stretch until halftime.

In the second half, MSJ would strike first once again, but Denison would roll the rest of the way, outscoring the Lions 9-0.

Following Caravana in the scoring column was Farinholt was three goals and one assist.  Chapin Speidel and Tyler King each finished with two goals and one assist while Nick Verklin and Eddie Vita both posted a pair of scores.

Rookie attack Justin DeMarchi scored one and had two assists to round out the leading scores for Denison.

Chris Thomas got the start in cage for DU and he turned in three saves in 53 minutes.  Chip Phillips was 10-of-17 in face-off situations.  He also paced DU with seven ground balls.

Denison outshot Mount St. Joseph 47-11 and scooped up 31 ground balls compared to just 18 for MSJ.    There was just one penalty flag thrown in the contest and the Lions converted its lone man-up opportunity.
