WOOSTER, Ohio—Denison scored twice in the first half and that was enough to leave with a 2-0 victory over the College of Wooster on Saturday at John P. Papp Stadium. 

For the second straight game, the Big Red controlled possession throughout. They held a 25-1 advantage in shots while attempting 18 penalty corners. 

Denison's first goal of the afternoon was scored by sophomore Abby Scully.  It was the third goal of the season for the second-year standout. She has already matched her career single-season high for goals.

Three minutes later, in the 28th minute of action, Charlotte Godfrey fired a shot that was deflected into the back of the cage by Alyssa Bahel for her first goal of the season. 

Lucy Pearsall led Denison with nine shots and Godfrey followed with five.  Wooster goalie Katie Shideler recorded six saves in 70 minutes of action.  Denison goalie Teya Adams turned in a save on her only shot that she faced. 

For Wooster, this marks their first setback of the season after getting off to a 5-0 start.  Denison improves to 5-1 overall and remains unbeaten in North Coast Athletic Conference play at 3-0.  Next week, DU will host Washington & Jefferson on Tuesday (Sept. 18) at 5 p.m. and Ohio Wesleyan on Thursday (Sept. 20) at 4:30 p.m.
