GRANVILLE, Ohio -- Three consecutive second-half goals powered the Denison men's soccer team to a 4-1 North Coast Athletic Conference victory over Oberlin on Tuesday night at Barclay-Thomsen Field.

Senior Matt Rush opened the scoring in the fifth minute. After settling a long pass from Dan Milhollen, Rush ripped a shot into the lower left corner for his four goal of the season. The Big Red maintained the one-goal advantage until Michael Canderlori snuck a shot inside the left post in the 44th minute of play off a feed from Thomas Kanter.

In the 69th minute, freshman Vitor Rocha used some fancy footwork in the midfield to elude several Oberlin players before slipping a through ball to Ethan Miracle inside the 18-yard box. Miracle capitalized on the golden opportunity with his team-high tying fifth goal of the year. Rush tacked on an insurance goal, his second of the match and fifth of the season, on a free kick from just outside the 18 that was buried into the upper left corner. The final tally came in the 83rd minute when Miracle forced a turnover and drew a foul inside the box that set up Luis Zamora's penalty kick goal.

Denison outshot the Yeomen 24-18, including a 10-5 advantage in shots on frame. Miracle finished the night with a game-high six shots, four on frame, and one goal, while Rocha and Leo Herard had five and four attempts, respectively. The two squads combined for 15 fouls, 11 of which occurred in the second half. Senior goalie Colin Cramer made four saves en route to his first victory of the season. Cramer's counterpart, Fiachra McDonagh, logged five stops on the night.

The Big Red (6-7-1, 3-3 NCAC) continues conference play on Saturday night when they travel to Springfield, Ohio to take on the Wittenberg Tigers. Kickoff is slated for 7:30 p.m.
