Football gets shutout, unbeaten in league play

Football gets shutout, unbeaten in league play

No. 11-ranked St. Thomas limited an injury-depleted Augsburg team to only 50 yards in total offense and four first downs in Saturday's 53-0 road win in MIAC football play under cold and windy conditions in Minneapolis. It was the Toms' 11th win in a row against the Auggies.

St. Thomas (4-1 overall, 3-0 MIAC) received four TD passes and 232 passing yards from quarterbacks Tommy Dolan and Ronnie Jones. Senior Gabe Green recorded his third consecutive 100-yard receiving game with seven catches for 106 yards.

The Tommie defense recorded two safeties; produced the first career interceptions for Joe Hird and Xavier Roberts; collected 10 tackles for loss; and held the host to 1-of-13 on third and fourth-down tries while holding Augsburg to just 44 plays. The Purple have allowed just six points over their last 10 quarters -- a long touchdown run on the game's final play by Concordia-Moorhead against reserve players.

The Toms ran up 487 yards of offense with 26 first downs.

St. Thomas plays unbeaten and No. 4-ranked St. John's next Saturday at Allianz Field.
