ALTOONA, Pa. – Sophomore Burke McLaughlin and freshman Luca Vicinelli each tallied a pair of goals on Saturday afternoon as Denison men's soccer posted a 10-0 shutout over Penn State-Altoona at Spring Run Stadium in Altoona, Pa. Denison's 10 goals mark the most goals scored in a match since the Big Red defeated Muskingum 15-0 in 1982.

Highlighted by a 23-3 shooting performance and a 9-0 advantage on corner kicks, the Big Red's offensive attack started in the 10th minute of action when McLaughlin accepted a crossing pass from Matt Rush at the two-yard mark and punched it in the back of the net for the first goal of his career.

Leading 1-0 in the 13th minute, Denison capitalized once again when sophomore Leo Herard took an unassisted shot from 15 yards out and cashed in for his first goal of the season, giving Denison a 2-0 advantage.

Rusha and Vicinelli each added goals in the 24th and 27th minutes, respectively, as the Big Red outshot the Lions 9-1 in the first half and carried a 4-0 lead into the break.

Entering the second half, it didn't take long for DU to continue where they left off as Stuart Windell sent a pass across the goal box in the 47th minute and McLaughlin finished it in the net for his second goal of the game.

After PSU-Altoona committed an own goal at 51:57, Vicinelli gave the Big Red a 7-0 advantage in the 65th minute off a pass from Luke Mattessich. That marked the second goal of the game for Vicinelli.

The Big Red added three more goals throughout the match, including headers from Harrison Netburn and Jackson Briggs. The win moved Denison to 1-1 on the season while the Lions dropped to 0-2 in 2019.

Also listed as the largest margin of victory since the 15-0 win over Muskingum in 1982, McLaughlin and Vicinelli led the Big Red with two goals each, while Netburn, Rush, Herard, Briggs, and freshman Ethan Miracle also assisted in the scoring column. Mattessich checked in with a game-high three assists, while Rush, Windell, Andrew Goldsholle, and Eric Buer rounded out DU's seven assists for the game.

Denison will return to action next Thursday, September 5 when they host Marietta College in their home-opener at Barclay-Thomsen Field. Kick-off is set for 7:30 p.m.
