Akeem Robotham scored early and Romario Willis scored twice as St. Scholastica routed Crown 4-0 in a nonconference men's soccer match on Tuesday in St. Bonifacius, Minnesota.

Robotham put the Saints into the lead just 2:27 into the game. Willis made it 2-0 in the 36th minute, then added a second late.

The Saints dominated play against their former Upper Midwest Athletic Conference rivals, recording 27 shots (nine on target) to Crown's three (one on target), meaning CSS goalkeeper Ben Hallberg needed to make only one save in his 67 minutes of work before Rafael Karmy came in to close it out.

CSS (2-4-2) returns to Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play on Saturday at home vs. Augsburg.


Saints take it on the chin at La Crosse

Wisconsin-La Crosse scored three times in the last 16 minutes of the first half to put away St. Scholastica in a nonconference match on Tuesday at Saints Field.


Rachael Janes, Natalie Schisel and Lindsey Szymanski put the visitors into a 3-0 halftime lead before the Saints could get a shot off. CSS only managed one shot on target for the game and was out-attempted 27-4.

Gracie Meagher made five saves. The Saints (1-5-1) host Augsburg on Saturday afternoon.

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.
