DE PERE - St. Norbert College remained unbeaten on the season with a 4-3 win over Lake Forest College in a Northern Collegiate Hockey Association game at Resch Olympic Pavilion.

The Green Knights (3-0-1, 1-0-1 NCHA), ranked No. 6 in the D3hockey.com Poll and No. 8 by USCHO.com, trailed 2-1 after the first period. But St. Norbert rallied on the heels of Ali Parker's first career hat trick.

Lake Forest's Morgan Pope scored a power-play goal at 14:08 of the period. St. Norbert answered with Parker's first goal at 17:02. The Foresters pulled ahead after the first 20 minutes after a Logan Taylor goal with 33 seconds left in the first period.

Parker scored the next two goals to start the second period, getting markers at 3:02 and 9:08 of the frame. The Foresters tied the game 3-3 on an unassisted goal by Emily Wybo, but the Green Knights got the eventual game-winner with five seconds left in the period on a goal by Taylor Giacin.

Lauren Roethlisberger assisted on all four goals for the Green Knights, becoming only the second person in school history to record that many in a single game.

Lake Forest outshot St. Norbert 43-37. Kaley Gibson made 40 saves for the Green Knights, while Casey Hartfiel made 33 saves for the Foresters. St. Norbert was 0-for-4 on the power play, while Lake Forest was 1-for-3.
