Eureka College junior quarterback Blake Robles completed passes to 10 different receivers and set or matched career-highs with 25 completions, 345 yards and four touchdowns, but Upper Midwest Athletic Conference co-leader St. Scholastica scored on four of its first five possessions to build an early lead and later held off a second-half rally from the hosts in a 38-25 league victory over the Red Devils, Saturday afternoon at Pete FioRito Stadium at McKinzie Field. The Saints put the Red Devils in a hole early, grabbing a 24-0 advantage before the EC offense could get into a rhythm.  An 11-yard touchdown rush from Jake Jensen capped the first CSS possession and got the visitors on the board with a 7-0 lead. The Saints got the ball back after a Eureka three-and-out and stretched their lead to 14-0 when quarterback Tyler Harper connected with Spencer Sprecht with a 4-yard touchdown pass with 3:29 left in the first. The Saints racked up 144 yards of offense in the first quarter and led 14-0 at the end of the frame. Robles finished the day 25-for-47 for a career-high 345 yards and four touchdowns. Jake Bane made a season-high six catches for 70 yards and two scores, while freshman receiver Dorell Baugh made four receptions for 29 yards. Senior running back Corey Dawson rushed 14 times for 57 yards.
