DE PERE - St. Norbert College's Kirill Vasilenko's goal with eight seconds remaining in regulation time salvaged a 1-1 tie for the Green Knights in a non-conference match against Edgewood College at Schneider Stadium.

Vasilenko took a feed from Trevor Scales and buried a line drive strike from about 20 yards out in a last-ditch effort to force overtime.

Edgewood scored the game's first goal at 52:35 when Thini Messan finished a high shot.

St. Norbert outshot Edgewood 20-15, but the Eagles held a slim 9-8 edge on corner kicks. Scott Faul made six saves for the Green Knights, while Matt Dammen turned in a six-save effort for Edgewood.
