DE PERE - St. Norbert College's Jim Blisk scored an overtime game-winning goal to give the Green
Knights a crucial 1-0 Midwest Conference win over Ripon College on Kolstad Field at Schneider
Stadium.

The Green Knights (7-7-3, 4-3-2 MWC) won their third-straight match to climb back into contention
for a spot in the four-team MWC Tournament. St. Norbert needs to defeat Knox on Saturday and
have Grinnell tie or lose either of its two remaining matches to clinch a berth.

St. Norbert and Ripon played to a scoreless stalemate during regulation time. Blisk took a pass
from Sam Gordon and finished into the net at the 92 minutes 1 second mark for his sixth goal of
the year. The win was St. Norbert's fifth 1-0 triumph of the season.

Ripon outshot St. Norbert 10-6. St. Norbert goalkeeper Noah Davis made five saves in registering
his fifth shutout of the season. Ripon goalkeeper Daniel Mikesell did not register a save for the
Red Hawks.
