Cory Couture scored once in Denison's loss to No. 4 Stevenson.

No. 4 Stevenson entered the game with the nation's second-best scoring offense and the nation's top point producer in Jimmy Dailey. On the other side of the ball, No. 15 Denison checked into the game with the nation's third-ranked defense.

It looked like a battle of two goliaths on paper but when the final horn sounded, Stevenson left Deeds Field-Piper Stadium with a 14-2 victory over Denison.

The Mustangs held a 3-0 lead after one quarter and they tacked on five more scores in the second quarter to take an 8-1 lead into halftime. Denison's lone first half goal came from Cory Couture off an assist by Kyle Brown.

In the second half it was more of the same as Stevenson continued to put on the pressure defensively, resulting in plenty of fast break scoring opportunities for the visitors.

Dailey finished the game with two goals and four assists while Tyler Reid scored four goals and one assist. Kyle Moffitt posted three goals while Neal Barthelme scored twice in addition to his three assists.

Denison got a late goal by Connor Carroll off an assist by Chapin Speidel to round out the Big Red's scoring.

Stevenson out-shot DU 49-18 and won 10-of-19 face-off's. The Mustangs were 1-for-7 in extra man and Denison was 0-for-2. Denison goalie Nick Petracca had 10 saves while playing the first 39 minutes. Gregg Shannon finished the final 21 minutes and posted five saves for DU. Stevenson goalie Ian Bolland notched five saves for the Mustangs.

Stevenson improves to 17-2 overall while Denison drops to 10-3.  The Big Red will have to wait on the NCAA selection committee to see if DU is chosen as one of four Pool B selections for the Division III Tournament which is scheduled to begin on May 11.
