The Wisconsin-Superior men's soccer team grabbed all the goals it needed in the first 37 minutes of a 5-0 rout of Martin Luther in Upper Midwest Athletic Conference play on Saturday, Sept. 24 in New Ulm, Minnesota.

It took Blake Perry just 96 seconds from the opening kickoff to score his seventh goal of the year and put the Yellowjackets in front. The visitors uncorked a flurry of goals in the 22nd, 29th, 31st and 37th, Phillip Eriksen getting two of the four to get to five goals for the season.

UWS held the game down from there, allowing the hosts only six shots, two on frame, for the contest while recording 28 (13 on target) of their own.

Patrick Sessions and Alex Paredes shared goalkeeping duties, with Paredes making two saves in his 45 minutes of work.

UWS (4-2-1, 2-0-1 UMAC) continues a stretch of road games with a Friday afternoon date at Crown.
