Whitney Powel finished with 6 caused turnovers, 8 ground balls and 3 goals against Oberlin.

Denison outscored Oberlin 6-1 over the final 30 minutes of play to cap off a 10-6 victory over the Yeowomen from Deeds Field-Piper Stadium.  Powered by three first half goals by Grace Barlow, Oberlin found themselves leading the Big Red, 5-4 at the intermission despite being outshot 19-7 over in the half.

DU kept the pedal to the metal in the second half, scoring six-straight goals over the first 20 minutes of play.  All six of DU's second half tallies were scored by different players as Elsie Humes got things started with her game-tying goal at the 26:43 mark of the period.  Erin Keller followed with an unassisted goal eight minutes later. Then Claire Ludlow found Whitney Powel for her third goal of the contest with 17:21 remaining.  Just over one minute later, Reid Hirschey slammed home an unassisted score to put DU on top 8-5.

That would be all of the breathing room DU would need as Lauren Adams and Ludlow rounded out Denison's scoring in the half.

Powel paced Denison with three goals, eight ground balls, and six caused turnovers.  The six caused turnovers and eight ground balls were both season-highs for Powel.

Humes contributed four caused turnovers, and five ground balls while Keller ended with four caused turnovers, and four draw controls.

Denison outshot Oberlin 39-12.  The Yeowomen committed 37 turnovers, 21 of which were caused by the Big Red.  The ground ball game was won by Denison, 28-23, while Oberlin held an 11-4 advantage in saves.

With the win, Denison improves to 5-2 overall and 1-1 in the North Coast Athletic Conference.  Oberlin falls to 5-1 and 1-1 in conference play.  Denison will hit the road for back-to-back games at Augustana (Ill.) on Saturday (April 5) and at DePauw on Sunday (April 6).
