GRANVILLE, Ohio -- Concordia Wisconsin came out firing and scored a pair of man-up goals just over two minutes into its first NCAA Tournament game in program history. In the end, eighth-ranked Denison earned a 12-6 victory over the Falcons on Wednesday night.

Final Score: Denison 12, Concordia Wisconsin 6
Location: Peiper Stadium (Granville, Ohio)
Records: Denison 16-2, Concordia Wisconsin 15-4

- No. 8 Denison got dinged with a non-releasable two-minute unsportsmanlike penalty one minute and 32 seconds into the game. Just 14 seconds later senior Aidan Connolly (Grayslake, Ill.) connected with senior Stephen Gregory (Louisville, Ky.) for a man-up score. It didn't take long for the Falcons to put another goal on the scoreboard when Connolly found Gregory for their second man-up goal connection 34 seconds later to go ahead 2-0.
- Denison used its NCAA Tournament experience and responded by scoring six-consecutive goals to take control.
- Senior Warren Kaminsky (Winnipeg, Manitoba) scored a goal with four seconds to play in the opening quarter, with Gregory assisting.
- Connolly got into the scoring column at the 7:27 mark in the second quarter, this time with Gregory doing the assisting. Sophomore Keijo Day (Esko, Minn.) did some celebrating with an unassisted marker with 1:14 remaining before halftime.
- Sophomore Donovan Harper (Yorba Linda, Calif.) put his name into this scoring column with a man-up score in the third quarter at 9:51, with Day assisting on the play.
- Day led the Falcons with three ground balls, while six of his teammates had two ground balls.
- Senior Garrett Wohlford (Rochester, Minn.) ended his superb career with a 19-save performance during a complete game effort.

- The Falcons were 21-of-26 on the clears and 3-of-6 on man-up opportunities.
- Concordia Wisconsin ends the season with a program-record 15 victories and set the program record for shots on goal (471). They also set the season record for saves (242), save percentage (67.8) and goals against average (6.06).
