Luke Walsh poured in 5 goals and 1 assist in the win over Wooster.
Luke Walsh poured in 5 goals and 1 assist in the win over Wooster.

Seven first half goals was enough to propel fifth-ranked Denison past previously unbeaten Wooster, 9-3 on Wednesday night.

Both squads entered the contest with identical 7-0 records, but it was the Big Red who struck first, scoring four of the game's first five goals in the opening quarter.  Two of DU's first quarter goals came from first-year attack Luke Walsh over the final three minutes of the period.

In the second quarter, DU would outscore the Fighting Scots 3-0 after two more goals by Walsh and one goal by Eddie Vita.

In the third quarter Blair Farinholt kept the run going for Denison when he scored his eighth goal of the season with 12:37 left.  Walsh would net his fifth goal of the contest less than two minutes later after a caused turnover by Teddy Powell

Walsh's final goal with 10:51 to play in the third quarter would cap off the scoring for DU, but the eight-goal lead would be enough to keep Denison in the land of the unbeaten.

The Big Red outshot Wooster 27-18 and was 7-for-14 in face-off situations.  Denison was 0-for-3 in man-up, and the Scots were 0-for-2.  Wooster goalie Matt Magoon finished with a game-high 11 saves while facing 20 shots.  Chris Thomas was right behind with 10 saves in his 60 minutes in cage.  Vita and Thomas led DU in ground balls with four.  Tommy Harrison posted two of Denison's seven caused turnovers.

Denison (8-0, 1-0 NCAC) will return to action on Saturday when they travel to Greencastle, Ind. for a 2 p.m. contest with DePauw University.
