MILWAUKEE -- Visiting Marian University scored three goals in a four-minute, 12-second span early in the second half to put the game out of reach for Alverno College Sunday afternoon at Alverno Field.
The Sabres (3-8, 1-4 Northern Athletics Collegiate Conference) earned their first conference win of the season in the 5-0 defeat of the host Inferno (5-6, 1-6 NACC).
The first half played out nearly even as Marian scored the period's lone goal on a penalty kick in the 34th minute.
A 14-10 advantage on shots in the game was in favor of the visitors as well as 8-2 on corner kicks -- two of which led directly to scores in the second-half scoring spurt.
The first of four consecutive road contests begins Tuesday for Alverno as the squad travels to Concordia University Wisconsin for a 4 p.m. kickoff.
