Denison ready for rematch with Ladies

Denison will take on Kenyon in Thursday's NCAC Semifinal.
Denison will take on Kenyon in Thursday's NCAC Semifinal.

The Denison women's lacrosse team will enter the 2013 North Coast Athletic Tournament semifinals primed for a rematch with No. 2 seed, Kenyon College on Thursday in Gambier, Ohio.

After late season losses to top-seeded Wittenberg and Kenyon, the Big Red checked into the conference tournament with a record of 13-2.  DU lost an opportunity to host the NCAC semifinal after Kenyon handed the Big Red a 15-10 loss last Wednesday in Granville.  

In that pivotal contest Denison got four goals from Lizzy Pellicane, three goals and one assist from Erin Keller and two goals and two assists from Molly Chapman but that wasn't enough to stop the Ladies.  Kenyon's Leah Sack added to her NCAC-leading assist total with six helpers and Jane Symmes finished with five goals.

Denison has won two-straight NCAC Tournament championships.  In 2011 they did it as the No. 1 seed by knocking off Wittenberg in the opener and Wooster in the championship.  Last year they entered as the No. 2 seed, dispatching Wooster in the semifinals before going on the road to knock off Wittenberg, 11-9.

This season the Denison offense has been led by the dynamic duo of Keller and Chapman.  The two have combined for 132 points on the season and Chapman has become the first DU player to score 40 goals and 40 assists in the same season.  Keller leads the team in goals (41), draw controls (50), and caused turnovers (30).

Sophomore Whitney Powel has added 30 goals to go along with her team-high 45 ground balls, and senior goalie Grace Bodenmann has recorded 98 saves in her 720 minutes of action.

Kenyon is led by Sack who leads all of NCAA Division III lacrosse with 67 assists and an average of 5.15 per game.  Emily Nichols is second in the conference in goals per game (3.69) and Symmes leads the league in draw controls per game (6.92) and ground balls per game (4.08).

Thursday's semifinal will begin at 5 p.m. from Mavec Field on the campus of Kenyon College.  Kenyon will be providing live video coverage of the event as well as live stats.  Overall, Denison has won a conference record 17 NCAC Championships in women's lacrosse.
