Duluth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Sam Durley set an NCAA Division III record with 736 yards passing last week for Eureka College. That wasn't the case this week as the Red Devils were in Duluth taking on St. Scholastica.

The Saints defense held Durley to just 228 yards passing on Saturday afternoon, part of a 35-10 win for St. Scholastica at Public Schools Stadium.

Nick Thiry caught two touchdown passes from Tyler Harper in the winning effort, which improved the Saints record in the 2012 season to (1-1).

Next up for St. Scholastica is the team's homecoming game against Greenville College, with that one set for 4:00 p.m. on September 15 at Malosky Stadium in Duluth.
