Jacksonville, IL (Northland's NewsCenter) --- The St. Scholastica football team got a 43-6 win on Saturday afternoon against MacMurray College in Jacksonville, Ill. to remain unbeaten in the Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC).

Three different Saints players had rushing touchdowns in the winning effort, including Moose Lake, Minn. native Chris Gassert. Jake Jensen and Thomas Fragale also found the end zone for St. Scholastica in the winning effort.

Quarterback Tyler Harper was effective, but not spectacular, all game long, finishing 10-of-21 passing for 135 yards and a touchdown while also rushing eight times for 17 yards.

Nick Thiry was the leading receiver for the Saints, recording three catches for 62 yards and a score.

St. Scholastica is now (4-1) overall this season and (4-0) in conference play. The team's next game is scheduled for October 6 at home against Northwestern, with that game set for a 4:00 kickoff at Ordean East Field in Duluth.
