In a battle of defending state powers, three-time defending Division I state champion St. Paul’s shutout Newman 2-0 at Lupin Field Wednesday night.

It was the combination of Justin Savoie and Colin Moser who got it done for the Wolves as Moser assisted both goals by Savoie to provide the margin of victory. The first goal came in the 11th minute to give St. Paul’s a 1-0 lead while the second occurred in the 55th minute to make it 2-0.

The Wolves (9-0-1) remained unbeaten, just a day after an emotional 3-0 win over district rival Mandeville. Newman (1-1-1) was the Division IV runner-up a year ago.

St. Paul’s travels across town to take on Covington next Tuesday at 7 p.m. while Newman returns to action against a strong Vandebilt Catholic squad in Houma Saturday at 1 p.m.
