GAMBIER, Ohio— Denison remained undefeated in North Coast Athletic Conference play and head coach Amanda Daniels picked up career win No. 100 after a 14-7 victory over Kenyon College.
Denison trailed 5-3 late in the first half but a flurry of five goals over a span of 4:26 sent the Big Red into the intermission with an 8-5 advantage.
After a caused turnover and ground ball by Denison's Leah Israel, Kenyon's Caitlin Augerson was issued a yellow card. The Big Red couldn't connect on the ensuing free-position attempt but Noonan was there for the ground ball and the score to put the Big Red up, 6-5.
After Noonan's goal, Israel won the draw and dashed for the goal and found Noonan for the quick score. Another draw control win led to Denison's fifth-straight goal and third goal in 39 seconds when Molly Fischer connected with Israel.
In the second half, Hannah Magarian took over in goal for Denison and she went on to post six saves while facing eight shots on goal from the Ladies. Her performance in goal allowed Denison to outscore Kenyon 6-2 over the final 30 minutes.
Noonan and Rafi led all scorers with four goals apiece. Israel returned to the lineup after an injury kept her sidelined for the last two contests and she finished with one goal, one assist, five draw controls, four ground balls and two caused turnovers.
Denison outshot Kenyon 33-20 while racking up a season-high 37 ground balls.
For Daniels, she improves to 100-65 (.606) in her career and 59-24 (.711) at Denison. She ranks third in program history in victories.
The Big Red returns to conference play on Sunday when they host Ohio Wesleyan at 2 p.m.
