It was a light week of NCAC action but Kenyon (9-1, 6-0) remained undefeated in league play with an impressive, 5-1, victory against Wooster (6-4, 3-3) last Wednesday. A full slate of conference games are scheduled for this week, highlighted by DePauw (7-3, 5-1) hosting Denison (7-3, 4-2) on Saturday and Wittenberg (6-3, 3-2) on Sunday.

DEPAUW is starting to get in a groove, winning two games last week and bringing its win streak to a total of five. The Tigers defeated Centre 2-0 in non-conference play and Earlham 3-0 in their lone NCAC game. Freshman Hannah Metzger (Lake Forest, IL/Lake Forest) recorded nine saves this weekend in net for the Tigers. She has now recorded three consecutive shutouts, totaling 11 saves in that span. Offensively, seniors Paige Berliner (New Albany, OH/Columbus Academy) and Reilly Bruce (Chicago, IL/Francis Parker) each scored twice this weekend.
