Denison took advantage of five first half penalties that were called on the Sewanee Tigers.  That resulted in five goals for the Big Red and that would be the difference as Denison improved to 2-0 on the season following a 14-7 win over Sewanee from Puett Field.

The home team jumped out to a 2-0 lead after goals by Brita Brudvig and Chelsea Staunton.  Eight minutes into the contest, and 20 seconds after the first yellow card was issued, Denison's Molly Chapman scored on an 8-meter attempt.  Two minutes later, Lauren Adams tied the game, but the Tigers would bite back with a pair of tallies over the next four minutes to take a 4-2 lead at the midway point of the first half.

With 14:14 to play, first-year Claire Ludlow scored via a free-position attempt.  Over the next eight minutes neither team would score but with 5:54 remaining, Sewanee would be issued their second yellow card of the contest, opening an exciting minute of play for the Big Red.  Seven seconds after the penalty, Elsie Humes fed Kelsey Wright for the game-tying goal.  Nineteen seconds later Carol Allen scored off a free position shot.  Then just five seconds after Piper Logan forced a turnover off a successful draw control by Sewanee, Allen would convert another 8-meter attempt.

Over the final 2:06 of the first half, Sewanee would be called for thee yellow cards and DU converted three unanswered goals to take a 9-4 lead into the intermission.

Six minutes into the second half, Erin Keller made the score 10-4 in favor of DU, capping off an impressive 8-0 run for Denison.  Sewanee would break that streak with 21:48 to play but by that time, DU had a five-goal lead and plenty of momentum.  Over the final 15 minutes of play Denison outscored the Tigers 4-2 to lock-up the 14-7 win.

Allen and Adams each posted hat-trick's in the victory.  Adams also added ones, assist on a goal scored by Keller late in the first half.  Ludlow and Keller each followed with two goals apiece while Chapman, Humes, Wright, and Reid Hirschey rounded out the scoring.

Laura Van Horn got the start in goal for Denison and played 30 minutes.  She led the way with six saves.  First-year Ansley Gibson played the entire second half and notched five saves.  Defensively, Rachel Pregel led DU with five ground balls and four caused turnovers.  Keller paced the team with four draw controls.

Denison will return to action next Sunday when they take on Vassar in Colorado Springs, Colo.
