FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Northrop boys soccer improved to 6-0 in the SAC and 12-0 overall with a 4-1 victory over visiting Bishop Luers at Spuller Stadium on Wednesday night as the Bruins kept themselves atop the conference standings with only one SAC match remaining.
Dwenger, meanwhile, beat Snider 1-0 on Wednesday night, as the Saints improved to 4-1 in SAC play and stay in second place in the conference standings. Dwenger will play North Side next Tuesday, then square off with Northrop at Spuller Stadium next Wednesday in a game that will likely decide the SAC championship.
