Webster went into Wednesday's game at Westminster a perfect 5-0 in the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference — with one of those wins happening against the Blue Jays on Sept. 27 in a 3-0 game — and outscoring opponents 23-1. The Blue Jays on Wednesday wouldn't fare any better.

The Gorloks rode a three-goal first half to defeat the Westminster 4-0 as the Blue Jays SLIAC winless drought now stands at five games.

Webster (10-1, 6-0 SLIAC) come out firing in the first half, blasting 12 shots and seven shots on goal. The Gorloks converted on three of those in the third, 38th and 42nd minutes against goalkeeper Connor Benefield.

The shots evened out at four apiece in the second half and Westminster's second goalie Toby Hughes made two stops to begin the period, but Webster scored off a rebound in the 49th minute from the second one to score its fourth goal.

Webster's goalkeeper had to make two saves in the second half — the only shots on goal for Westminster (2-7-2, 2-4-1 SLIAC) in the game — and the Blue Jays would be shut out for the fourth time in five games.

Andrew Sprengel and Francois Moua had the two Westminster shots on goal and have two of the four Blue Jay shots in the game.

Westminster will stay at home for its conference game at 1 p.m. Saturday against Eureka.
