GRANVILLE, Ohio – Thanks to a three-goal performance from senior Maggie Armstrong, Denison women's soccer notched their fourth consecutive win on Sunday afternoon as they defeated Shenandoah University 5-2 at Deeds Field-Piper Stadium in Granville.

Playing on the Deeds Field turf for the second straight day, the Big Red stayed in control throughout the game, outshooting the Hornets 18-11, including 12 shots on goal compared to SU's seven.

Despite falling behind in the third minute of play on a goal from Shenandoah's Kaitlyn Carter, DU capitalized on the equalizer at 34:06 when junior Riley Hammond sent a corner kick into the box from the left side and Armstrong headed it from just outside the goal box.

Less than four minutes later, it was déjà vu for DU as Hammond crossed in another corner for Armstrong to head in and give the Big Red the lead at the half, 2-1.

Wasting little time with her chance at a hat trick, Armstrong opened the second half with a shot from 20 yards out that inched over the outreaching arms of Shenandoah's goalie Autumn Delellis for her third goal of the match and 3-1 advantage for Denison.

In the 50th minute, freshman Liz Gilbert joined the scoring party as she went one-on-one with Delellis and sent the ball between her legs for Gilbert's fourth goal of the season and to give the Big Red a 4-1 lead.

Denison extended their lead to 5-1 in the 73rd minute after Abby King connected with fellow freshman Sydney Ludes on the right side of the box who sent the goal past the keeper for the first goal of her collegiate career.

Shenandoah tallied another goal in the final 10 minutes of play, but the Big Red captured the victory and moved to 4-1 on the season, which includes a 17-4 scoring advantage through the first five games of the season.

Armstrong led all scorers with three goals on the afternoon, while Hammond led both sides with two assists. This marked Armstrong's sixth multi-goal performance of her career and her first hat trick since arriving in Granville.

Leading the way for DU in goal was freshman Patil Tcholakian who tallied five saves in a full 90 minutes of play. For Shenandoah, Anna Jacobsen led the Hornets in net with seven saves in 73:45 of action.

Continuing their five-match homestand, the Big Red will welcome Centre College to Granville on Saturday, September 15 for a 1 p.m. start.
