The Mustangs’ 13-goal onslaught topped their previous single-game scoring best of nine goals in a 9-2 triumph against Concordia during the 2004 campaign.
Morningside had 12 assists against the Lancers to break that single-game mark as well. The Mustangs’ previous single-game record was nine assists in games against Concordia in both the 2004 and 2006 seasons.
Tobias Schomerus dealt three assists to tie Morningside’s single-game individual record, a feat that had been achieved nine times before.

Rodriguez scored the first goal of the game when he beat Lancer goal keeper Rogelio Rodriguez nine minutes into the contest. Karshuening then tallied a pair of goals in a four minute span to put the Mustangs in front 3-0.
The Mustangs took a 6-0 lead into the intermission. Wolff scored the Mustangs’ record-breaking 10th goal off an assist from Elvis Castro with 24 minutes left in the contest.
Morningside outshot Mount Marty by a 28-4 margin.
Mustang goal keepers Zach Stephenson and Jared Amundson each played a half and each had one save.
