St. Paul Humboldt navigated cold, wet conditions and physical play to defeat Metro College Prep 4-1 on Thursday night in Edina to advance to the next round of the Class 1A state tournament.
The Hawks got two goals each from their season’s leading goal scorers, junior Saw Say Tha and senior Yah Naing Oo.
Saw Say Tha and Yah Naign Oo each recorded two goals to lead St. Paul Humboldt past Metro Schools College Prep 4-1 on Thursday night’s Class A State Quarterfinal match in Edina.
The Hawks held a one-goal lead at halftime on Tha’s first goal mid-way through the half.

Oo and Tha each scored their second goals in the second half to seal the Hawks’ win.
