SPRINGFIELD, Ohio--  Eighth-ranked Denison improved to 8-2 overall and 2-0 in the North Coast Athletic Conference after a 19-6 win over Wittenberg at Edwards-Maurer Field. 

Denison shook off a 1-1 tie five minutes into the game when Peter Pittroff found Brooks Davy, sparking a 6-0 run for the Big Red that stretched into the midpoint of the second quarter.  The 7-1 lead is all the breathing room the Big Red needed but the lead continued to grow prior to halftime.  Four straight goals over a span of 6:19 in the second allowed DU to take an 11-2 lead into the second half.

In the third quarter, Sam Asman, Pittroff, Owen Armstrong and two goals from Spencer Butler increased the Big Red's lead to 16-4 heading into the fourth quarter.

Armstrong and Pittroff each posted hat tricks and Pittroff led the team in points with three goals and two assists.  The sophomore is second in the nation in assists per game (3.70).

Jake Waxter (2 goals), Butler (2 goals, 1 assist), Josh Happ (2 goals), Brooks Davy (2 goals, 1 assist), Ian Crosby (2 goals), Riley Johnson (1 goal), Brant Pittman (1 goal) and Asman (1 goal) accounted for the remainder of Denison's scoring.

Stephen Paras made the start in goal and finished with seven saves in 45 minutes of action.  Cole Poyfair played the fourth quarter and finished with two saves.  Hunter Golian led the team with four ground balls and Chris Broderick followed with three.

Wittenberg was led in scoring by Jack Strahm's three goals on four shots.  Tiger goalie Colin Cahill took the loss. In 45 minutes he recorded six saves but allowed 16 goals on 29 shots faced.

With the win, Denison's record versus Wittenberg moves to 41-2 (.953).  They have won nine-straight against the Tigers dating back to 2011.  The Big Red will host Hiram College on Tuesday (April 3) at 7 p.m.
