With the wins, the Saints move to 16-4-1 on the season.  They will return to action on Saturday when they face off with Indiana Tech.  The games will be played at Siena Heights, but they will be the visiting team.  Additionally, the protested game with the University of Findlay on March 28th was upheld, so the teams will either find a date to replay the game from the point of protest, or the game becomes a no contest.
