GRANVILLE, Ohio--  Denison's winning streak reached eight games after a convincing 5-1 victory over the College of Wooster on Tuesday at Piper Stadium.  The win avenged a 1-0 double-overtime loss to the Fighting Scots on September 13, which also happens to be the last time the Big Red found themselves on the short end of the scoreboard.

Denison took command early, forcing penalty corners and applying pressure to the Fighting Scots defense.  Leading 8-0 in shots 28 minutes into the match, the Big Red broke through with a beautiful goal by Charlotte Happel that was set up by a 50-yard sprinting dribble by Alyssa Bahel.  She used her speed, made the turn toward the goal and fed a crossing pass to Happel who was there for the finish.

Just over a minute later, DU scored again when Jen Durbin cashed in from about five yards inside the circle.  The Big Red took a commanding 3-0 lead two minutes before halftime when after a penalty corner, Ali Gakenheimer crossed a ball through traffic to Bahel who was sitting at the corner of the cage ready to shoot and score. 

In the 53rd minute, Wooster's Kristina Miesel took the first shot of the match for the Scots.  One minute later, Harriet Sudduth pushed a loose ball into the back of the cage to make it a 3-1 game.

Six minutes later, Durbin inserted a penalty corner to Lucy Pearsall who received the ball at the top of the circle and passed to Happel for her second goal of the match.

The scoring was capped off in the final minute when Bahel scored after Pearsall's shot was saved by Katie Shideler. It was the fifth goal of the season for Bahel and her second multi-goal effort in 2017.

The eight-game winning streak is Denison's longest since stringing together 13-straight victories in 2013 on their way to a 17-2 season.

Denison outshot Wooster 25-3 and held an 11-1 advantage in penalty corners.  Shideler tallied 12 saves in goal for the Scots and Emma Roderick added one defensive save.  The Big Red was led offensively by Bahel who finished with two goals and one assist on three shots.  Happel led the team in shots with five, scoring twice.  Michelle Kabaira and Charlotte Godfrey chipped in four shots apiece.

DU returns to action on Friday, Oct. 13 when they travel to Oberlin College for a 4:30 p.m. tilt with the Yeowomen.  The Big Red defeated Oberlin 4-0 on Sept. 15 in Granville.
