St. Scholastica jumped out with four goals in the first half and then held on for a 4-3 nonconference men’s soccer victory at Ponzio Stadium in Ashland.
Ken Pryde scored two goals and Romario Willis and Akeem Robotham also tallied goals as the Saints were comfortably ahead 4-0 at the break. Willis assisted on two of those goals, and the first two goals came in the game’s first two minutes.

Garren Aberth had six saves for Northland (2-7).
