DULUTH — Duluth FC continued a torrid start to the 2022 National Premier Soccer League North Conference season, routing the Minnesota TwinStars 5-0 on Wednesday at Public Schools Stadium to make it three shutout wins in as many games.

Wednesday's contest featured a pair of goals from Blake Perry, who opened the scoring in the 24th minute and tacked on the BlueGreens' third goal of the night in the 39th.

Sam Thornton and Santiago Erazo also found the back of the net to put the hosts 4-0 up at halftime against a visiting side that had already lost a man to a red card just before the break.

Peter Oyetunji finished it off with a late goal for the BlueGreens, who'll put their 3-0 record on the line in their next game, May 28 vs. La Crosse Aris.
