GRANVILLE, Ohio--  Denison advanced to the championship game of the 2019 North Coast Athletic Conference Tournament after a 17-8 victory over the College of Wooster on Thursday afternoon at Piper Stadium.

Denison shook off a 6-6 halftime score by outscoring the Fighting Scots 11-2 over the final 30 minutes of play.  Senior attackman Brooks Davy scored four consecutive goals over a three-minute span in the third quarter to take the game from a 7-7 tie to an 11-7 Big Red lead. 

Wooster's Cullen Kuhn scored with 56 seconds left in the third to get his team back to within three goals at 11-8.  In the fourth, Denison outshot Wooster 15-4 and connected on six goals in the period to pull away for the nine-goal victory.

Davy finished with seven goals and six ground balls and moved into fourth place on Denison's career goal-scoring list (144), but the starring role went to senior faceoff specialist Henry DeCamp

In his second game back from an injury sustained in early April, DeCamp set a new Denison single-game high with 24 faceoff wins.  He also tied his own single-game record with 20 ground balls, a feat he last accomplished in 2018 versus DePauw.  DeCamp took all 28 draws, winning at an 86 percent clip.  His stellar performance moved him into third place on Denison's career ground ball leaderboard.  He is only five ground balls away from passing his predecessor, Eric Baumgardner '16, as the career leader (369).

Spencer Butler followed with a season-high eight points (four goals, four assists) on 12 shots.  Peter Pittroff inched closer to Denison's career assist record as he dished out four helpers on the day.  Pittroff needs two assists to pass Liam Rooney '16 as the program's career leader.

Sophomore goalie Reeves McKenney tallied 14 saves, with eight coming in the first half helping keep Wooster in check.

Wooster (7-11) was led in scoring by Kuhn and Ted Wells' two goals apiece.  Wesley Wagner notched 11 saves in the cage.

This is the seventh year of the NCAC Men's Lacrosse Tournament and the seventh consecutive year that the Big Red will play in the title game.  Denison is 4-2 in the previous six conference title matchups.

Denison will face the No. 2 seed, Ohio Wesleyan, on Sunday, May 5 at 12 p.m.
