NORTHFIELD, Minn. — Running back Stephen Wagner found the endzone four times Saturday at Klein Field as St. Thomas completed a 8-0 MIAC season with a 97-0 victory over St. Olaf.
Wagner’s touchdowns led an offense that put up the most points ever by a Caruso-led Tommie team. The previous record was set earlier this season when St. Thomas beat Hamline 84-0.
The Tommie defense pitched their fourth shutout of the season while helping with scoring. Defensive back Michael Franzese returned an interception 40 yards to the endzone for a touchdown.
On special teams, defensive back Mark Dowdle returned a punt 22 yards for a touchdown.
In the last regular season game of his career, Tommie offensive lineman Jaxon Lind scored the final touchdown for the Tommies with 5-yard touchdown run with under a minute in the fourth quarter.
The Tommies clinched sole possession of the MIAC title with the win over St. Olaf and will find out their playoff fate Sunday during the NCAA Tournament selection process.
