Tommie Men's Soccer trekked all the way to Fargo, N.D., to pick up its latest victory, one that keeps it atop the MIAC standings by three points.

Sophomore George Marty scored in the 83rd minute as the Tommies outlasted Concordia-Moorhead, 1-0, Wednesday night in a league contest played on a turf field at Fargo Shanley High School.

St. Thomas (7-3-3 overall, 6-1 MIAC) has won six in a row after starting league play 28 days ago with a 2-1 home loss to Gustavus.

Marty took a lead pass from Jonathan Acevedo and converted his breakaway attempt. Troy Louwagie was in the nets for the shutout and stayed unbeaten on the season.

It was the fifth career goal for Marty, and the Toms are 11-1-1 in his career in games when he records a goal or an assist.

The Toms had a 7-2 edge in corner kicks and a 10-2 advantage in shots on goal.

St. Thomas is home Saturday at 1 p.m. to face Hamline.
