The Denison team accepts the Thomsen-Heiser Trophy, played in honor of former Denison coach, Tommy Thomsen and Kenyon coach, Bill Heiser.

The second annual Thomsen-Heiser game between the 13th ranked Big Red and the host, Kenyon Lords was a battle from the opening face-off, but three fourth quarter goals by Denison would be enough to send DU to at 6-3 victory from McBride Field in Gambier.

Leading 3-2 entering the fourth quarter, an extra-man goal by Will Koontz via an assist by Justin DeMarchi with 11:15 to play gave Denison a little breathing room.  With 8:38 remaining Blair Farinholt scored his first goal thanks to an assist by Nick Bortolani.  That 5-2 lead would stick until the 1:32 mark when Connor Carroll scored his second goal of the game, effectively ending any Kenyon comeback hopes.

The Lords would score once more with 1:07 left, setting the final at 6-3.  Despite putting a season-low six goals on the board, the Denison offense cranked out 42 shots, nearly doubling its opponent in the category. 

Carroll was the leading scorer with two goals and one assist.  Senior midfielder Tyler King scored twice and the remaining two goals came from Koontz and Blair Farinholt.  DU edged the Lords in the ground ball battle, 32-29.  Spencer Riehl led the way with five ground balls.  Austin Campbell posted two caused turnovers and first-year goalie Chris Thomas posted eight saves.

For the Lords, Patrick Shevelson turned in a 14-save performance in cage.  Jared Jacbos won 8-of-13 face-off's and led the team with four ground balls.  Fritz Waine was the leading scorer with one goal and one assist.

Denison improves to 9-2 overall and 4-0 in the North Coast Athletic Conference.  Kenyon's record dips to 6-6 overall and 2-2 in the NCAC.  DU will return to action on Saturday (April 13) when they host Wittenberg at 7:30 p.m.
