Spencer Riehl scored once and led DU with 6 ground balls.

Eleven players scored at least one goal and junior Chapin Speidel netted four as No. 11 Denison rolled to an 18-4 victory over Concordia (Wis.) University on Friday night at Piper Stadium.

The Big Red imposed its will upon the Falcons from the opening whistle and just 2:16 into the contest, DU held a 3-0 advantage after goals from Nick Verklin, Speidel and Teddy Powell.

With 8:38 to play in the first quarter, Concordia's Derek Brueske scored off a pass from Sam Wladyka but that would be final score by the Falcons for quite some time.

Just over a minute after Brueske's score, Speidel notched his second goal and Nick Caravana would follow with his first of two goals with 1:39 left in the quarter. Overall, it would be a 12-0 run by Denison that would stretch well into the third quarter.

While Speidel led all players with four goals, Powell, Caravana, and Connor Carroll all posted two goals and one assist, apiece.  Verklin scored twice and rookie Justin DeMarchi added one goal and one assist.  Also getting in the scoring column was Spencer Riehl, Tyler King, Austin Campbell, Mike Soumekh, and Matt King.

Riehl led the defense with six ground balls and one caused turnover.  Campbell finished with three ground balls and two caused turnovers while Evan Chaberski, Drew Newman and Ben Hearn all tallied four ground balls.

Chris Thomas got the start in goal and played the first half, recording one save while facing three shots.  Henry Donaldson played 20 minutes and Clark Bullington closed out the final 10 minutes, posting four saves.

DU outshot Concordia 54-16 and won the ground ball battle 51-24.  Face-off's were also dominated by the home team, 18-of-24.  Chip Phillips was 8-of-10 at the X.

Concordia was paced by Wladyka's two goals and one assist.  Goalie Zack Davis posted 15 saves in 57 minutes of action.

The Big Red will return to action on March 9 when they travel to Haverford College for a 3:30 p.m. face-off.  That will be the first of three games Denison will play on its annual spring break trip.  They will not return home to Piper Stadium until March 23 against Wooster.
