HIRAM, Ohio—No. 10 Denison erased all drama with 13 goals in the first quarter.  That powered the Big Red to a 26-1 win over Hiram College on Tuesday night at Henry Field.

Senior attackman Liam Rooney, who was coming off scoring his 200th career point last Saturday against Wittenberg, piled up five assists in the first nine minutes of play.  Rooney leads the nation in assists per game (4.33) and his five helpers against the Terriers runs his season total to 39 which is a new career high.  He also moved into seconds place on Denison's career assist list with 113, moving past Dave Baxter '81. He needs 22 assists to become the program's career leader.

In the first quarter, eight different players accounted for Denison's 13 goals.  The Big Red attempted only 17 shots in the opening period, resulting in a .765 shooting percentage.  Spencer Butler tallied a hat trick in the first while Jake Waxter, Will Donohue and Owen Armstrong added a pair.

In the second quarter, DU scored six more times thanks to goals by Ryan Seymour, Owen Sappington, Josiah Wilson, Aidan Maher, Chris Haimbaugh and Hunter Golian.

In the third quarter, DU put seven more on the scoreboard on 14 shots.  Maher scored two more times followed by two from Josiah Wilson, another from Seymour and one by senior Michael Haueisen.  Sophomore long stick midfielder Tommy McMaster even got into the act, notching his first career goal after a caused turnover by Brant Pittman.

In the fourth quarter, Hiram spoiled the shutout bid when Nick Rollason scored on a pass from Hunter Jenkins.

Freshman goalie Stephen Paras improved to 8-0 after getting the start and playing the first quarter.  He recorded one save.  Will Howard played the second and third quarters and made one save.  Will Nabors closed out the game with one save in 15 minutes between the pipes.

The Big Red won 22-of-31 faceoffs as Hunter Golian led the way with six ground balls after going 7-for-8 at the X.

DU improves to 8-1 while Hiram drops to 2-6.  The Big Red will host Oberlin College this Saturday (April 8) at 1 p.m.
