QUINCY, Ill. -- Mount Mercy men's soccer coach Amir Hadzic got the 150th win of his career on Wednesday when senior forward Josip Druzijanic led a Mustang rout of Culver-Stockton (Mo.) at Boots Bush Field.

Druzijanic set a school record with five goals in Mount Mercy's 6-0 shutout. That gives him 14 this season, which leads the Midwest Collegiate Conference and is tied for second in the NAIA. It also moved Druzijanic into a tie for sixth on the Mustangs' career list with 25 goals.

Druzijanic had Mount Mercy's first five scores. Freshman forward Marco Fichtner assisted the first goal in the 14th minute, then Druzijanic converted a penalty kick six minutes later. He added a third score in the 38th minute with help from sophomore midfielder Jamie Booth.

Senior forward Robert MacGillivray and freshman forward Filip Kovacevic set up Druzijanic's final two goals in the 55th and 58th minutes. Freshman forward Marko Govedarica finished off the scoring in the 65th minute on an assist by senior midfielder Veselin Karagyuarov.

Senior goalkeeper Harrison Burgess stopped five shots to get his second shutout win of the season. Mount Mercy (7-4-0), winner of four straight games, will be at Viterbo (Wis.) in Midwest Collegiate Conference action on Tuesday at 3:00 p.m. in La Crosse, Wis.
