DULUTH — St. Scholastica will look to build momentum off last week’s win when the Saints open MIAC play against Augsburg at 1 p.m. Saturday in Minneapolis.

The Saints (1-1) are coming off a 63-14 nonconference victory over former UMAC foe Crown in St. Bonifacius, Minnesota.

Sophomore quarterback Donald West led the way with an efficient performance, going 17-for-24 passing for 227 yards, with three touchdowns and no interceptions.

Ashton Hian rushed for 92 yards and three touchdowns, Nick Schlender added 66 yards and a touchdown and freshman Logan Orvedahl, a Moose Lake/Willow River product, added four carries for 41 yards and another score.

Simon Randorf led the CSS defense with seven tackles while Colby Jorschumb, Kyle Oswald and Antonio Bugni had interceptions. St. Scholastica held a 458 to 351 advantage in yards while forcing five turnovers by Crown (0-3).

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
