GREEN BAY - A four-goal blitz by St. Norbert College in the second period lifted the Green Knights to a 6-3 non-conference win over Milwaukee School of Engineering at the Cornerstone Community Center. The Green Knights, ranked No. 1 in Division III, moved their unbeaten streak to 12 (11-0-1). MSOE fell to 7-6.

St. Norbert moved ahead 4-1 on Shane Wheeler's breakaway score at 14:08.

The Raiders cut it to 4-2 with 10 seconds left in the second when Hanberg scored again, but Allen's power-play goal at 1:48 put the Green Knights ahead by three goals again. Simon Labrosse-Gelin scored at 6:15 to cut it to 5-3, but Mike Bernardy registered his first collegiate goal on a slapshot from the point at 11:23 to round out the scoring.
