Three different players scored, which was more than enough offense for the Wisconsin-Superior men's soccer team, which held Northland without a shot on goal in a 3-0 UMAC blanking Wednesday in Ashland that gave the Yellowjackets their first regular-season conference title.
UWS (15-2-1 overall, 10-0-1 UMAC) amassed a 20-0 advantage in shots on goal while winning its 11th straight. Gustavo Barbieri, Elliot Chapman and Leonardo Paredes scored for the Yellowjackets, who had secured at least a share of the title via a 2-0 win over North Central on Saturday. They won the tournament crown in 2017.
• Armin Bobaric scored twice and tacked on two assists, Darby Henderson had a goal for the third straight game, and St. Scholastica defeated North Central 5-0 in a UMAC tilt in Minneapolis.
Luke Buckton also notched a pair of goals as the Saints (9-7-2 overall, 8-2-1 UMAC) won their third in a row to secure the No. 2 seed in next week's conference tournament. All of St. Scholastica's offense came in the second half.
• The St. Scholastica women shot better than 50 percent in a 10-1 UMAC drubbing of North Central in Minneapolis.
Janelle Rouillard recorded a hat trick, while teammates Rachel Dixon and Kaiya Quam finished with two goals apiece for the Saints (12-4-2 overall, 10-0-1 UMAC), who totaled 17 shots on goal. They host the league playoffs next week.
• Despite 13 shots on goal, the UWS and Northland women settled for a scoreless UMAC tie in Ashland.
Yellowjackets goalkeeper Madison Gutekunst made six saves and her counterpart, Megan Jordan, had seven.
UWS (6-10-2 overall, 5-5-1 UMAC) concludes the regular season Saturday at Minnesota-Morris in a contest that will go a long way in determining the conference's playoff bracket.
