GAMBIER, Ohio—Sophomore All-American Michelle Kabaira scored the game-winning goal with 2:33 left in the first overtime period propelling Denison to a 1-0 victory over Kenyon.  With the win, Denison remains undefeated and in first place in the North Coast Athletic Conference standings at 7-0. 

Denison attempted only three shots in the first half while blanking Kenyon in the shot department.  In the second half, DU turned up the heat, outshooting the Ladies, 14-3.  In the 49th minute, after a penalty corner by Virginia Hamilton, Denison's Charlotte Godfrey put a shot-on-goal that had to be saved by Kenyon field player, Sammy Russell. 

In the 55th minute, Kenyon's Tara Shetty put her squad's only shot-on-goal after a penalty corner but Denison's Teya Adams was there with the save.

Over the final 10 minutes of regulation, Denison racked up four penalty corners and took six shots at the Kenyon cage.  In overtime, Denison's Charlotte Happel and Lucy Pearsall put shots on goal in the first five minutes of play.  Kabaira's game-winning came as she dribbled through traffic on the right side of the field and centered up a shot attempt that was good. 

The goal was the first of the season and the fifth of Kabaira's career.  The fullback also has one assist on the year. 

The Big Red outshot Kenyon 22-3 and out-cornered them 13-2.  Over the last three games, DU has not allowed a goal and they have outshot their opponents 53-4 while dominating penalty corners 38-5.

Denison, who was ranked in the "others receiving votes" column of the National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division III Top-25 poll, was led in shot attempts by Happel with six.  Godfrey and Kabaira took five shots while Pearsall followed with two.

The Big Red will host DePauw on Saturday (Oct. 6) at 11 a.m.  On Sept. 5, the Big Red opened NCAC play with a 3-1 victory over the Tigers.
