With 11 minutes left in the match, DePauw's Kate Milner scored off a pass from Cathy Zesiger but just over two minutes later the Big Red bounced back. After a penalty corner insert by Kat Swan, Pearsall converted her second goal of the day to put DU on top, 2-1.
Denison added its third and final goal on an untimed penalty corner with no time remaining. Swan did the honors with Charlotte Happel converting the goal.
Teya Adams played all 70 minutes in goal for Denison and finished with one save. Sarah Foye posted three saves for DePauw. The Big Red outshot the Tigers 12-4 and out-cornered them 10-4.
