ADRIAN, Mich. - St. Norbert College scored four goals in the second period to account for all of the scoring in a critical 4-0 win over Adrian College in a Northern Collegiate Hockey Association game at Arrington Ice Arena.

The Green Knights (15-5-2, 10-4-1 NCHA) entered the game with 19 league points. Adrian (17-5, 10-5) was tied with Lake Forest College and College of St. Scholastica with 20 points entering play Friday. St. Norbert faces Lake Forest at 7 p.m. Saturday in another key game in the league race.

St. Norbert pounded home all four of its goals in the second period. All four of the Green Knights' markers were power-play goals, setting a school record for power-play goals in a game.

Adrian's Alix Vallee was called for tripping at 3:17 of the second period, and the Bulldogs' Audrey Noles was cited for interference at 4:58. St. Norbert promptly cashed in on a 5-on-3 power-play opportunity when Henriette Ostergaard finished at 5:09 for her ninth goal of the season. The Green Knights scored again on the remaining power-play time when Ali Parker netted her 11th goal of the season just 28 seconds later.

St. Norbert killed off a penalty at the 8-minute mark and three seconds later Adrian's Sarah Shureb was sent off for boarding. Adrian was called for a delayed penalty at 9:30 and St. Norbert goaltender Kaley Gibson skated off for an extra attacker. Danielle Rozon finished the 6-on-4 opportunity with her second goal of the year at 9:44. The delayed penalty set off Adrian's Sydney Dobbin for cross-checking, and St. Norbert again converted on the advantage on a Senne goal at 11:17.

St. Norbert outshot Adrian 32-28, including 17-7 in the second period. Kaley Gibson turned in a 28-save shutout, while Adrian's Jade Walsh also made 28 saves. St. Norbert was 4-for-7 on the power play, while Adrian was 0-for-6.
