GRANVILLE -- Isaac Opoku's penalty kick goal in the 50th minute of play helped lift Hiram to a 2-1 North Coast Athletic Conference victory over Denison on a rainy Wednesday night.

Despite outshooting the Terriers 12-7 in the opening 45 minutes, the Big Red found themselves in a 1-1 tie at the break. Hiram's Tommy Rink registered the game's first tally when he settled a cross-field pass from Brian Corbin, worked back into the middle of the box and ripped a shot into the bottom left corner of the goal. Rink's goal came at 34:52.

Just 98 seconds later, Denison responded with the equalizer. Luis Zamora sent a pass down the left sideline that connected with Leo Herard. Herard worked his way around the charging goalkeeper, CJ Keith, and buried a shot into the vacated goal.

At 49:44, the Terriers' Keagan Le'Roux drew a foul in the box that also resulted in a yellow card on Eric Buer. Opoku took the ensuing penalty kick that put the visiting team back on top.

Over the final 40 minutes of play, DU racked up eight shots, including four attempts on frame. The Big Red's best chance came in the final two minutes of the period. Denison goalie Dylan Brown uncorked a punt that got behind Hiram's backline and was corralled by Ethan Miracle. One-on-one with the goalie, the freshman forward had his shot knocked offline by Shelby Edwards.

The Big Red doubled up Hiram in the shot category, 22-11, including an 8-5 edge in shots on target. Denison attempted eight corners to the Terriers' one, while the two teams combined for nine offsides.

Denison (6-9-1, 3-5 NCAC) wraps up the regular season on Saturday (Nov. 2) when they host Wooster at 3 p.m.
