Cory Couture scored 3 goals and added 2 assists at Wittenberg.

It was close in the opening minutes, but the No. 8 Big Red outscored Wittenberg 12-2 over the final 45 minutes to top the Tigers 16-5.

With 3:11 left in the first quarter, Wittenberg's Tyler Hall scored an unassisted goal which put the Tigers on top 3-2.  Denison would get goals from Cory Couture and Davis Lukens to close out the quarter and take back the lead.

Wittenberg would strike first again in the second quarter when Alex Previte scored that would spark a 5-0 run by Denison to close out the quarter.  Two goals by Chapin Speidel, a score by Nick Verklin, an extra-man goal by Eddie Vita and another goal by Lukens would put DU on top 9-3 at halftime.

The third quarter would start the same as the second, with a quick Tiger goal but the Big Red would erase any thoughts of a comeback by scoring the next seven goals of the game, setting the final at 16-5.

Couture led Denison with three goals, two assists and five ground balls.  Alex Hardt posted a season-high five assists to go along with one goal. Lukens ended with three goals, two assists and two ground balls while Speidel notched three goals and one assist.

Austin Campbell led the defense with seven ground balls and goalie Nick Petracca ended with 14 saves in three quarters of action. 

At the face-off X, Chip Phillips won 16-of-24 draws.  He also ended with three ground balls.  Denison was 2-for-7 in extra-man situations while Wittenberg went 1-for-3.

DU improves to 10-1 overall and 4-0 in the North Coast Athletic Conference while Wittenberg falls to 7-5 and 1-2 in the NCAC.

Denison returns to the field next Saturday (April 21) when they take on Kenyon College in the first-ever Thomsen-Heiser Trophy Game at 1 p.m.  The Lords are coming off an 11-9 win over Ohio Wesleyan earlier today.  Kenyon is 9-3 and 2-2 in conference play.
