The Big Red dominated possession throughout and set the tone early with six first quarter goals.  Starting attackmen Teddy Powell and Eddie Vita each scored a pair of goals in the opening quarter while Luke Walsh and Blair Farinholt provided one goal apiece.

It would be more of the same in the second quarter as DU outscored the Colonels 4-0 to take a 10-0 lead into the intermission.  In the first half of play, Denison outshot Centre 27-8, and won 11-of-12 face-off attempts.

Powell would lead Denison in scoring with three goals and two assists.  Farinholt and Walsh would also post hat tricks, while Vita led the team in points with two goals and five assists.  Vita has tallied a career-high 32 assists this season.

Eric Baumgardner was locked in once again at the faceoff X.  The sophomore 1as 17-for-19 and led the team with 11 ground balls.  Over his last three games, Baumgarder has won 47-of-60 draws, good for a .783 winning percentage.  As a team, Denison won 21-of-26 draws.

Clark Bullington got the start in goal for Denison and played 41 minutes, recording five saves.  Chris Thomas played the final 19 minutes and made one save.
