St. Norbert iced the game with an empty-net goal by Kylie Gazzolo with 51 seconds left. Emily Bondrager scored 11 seconds later to close out the scoring.

Chandler added two assists for a three-point game, while Roethlisberger had an assist for a two-point game.

St. Norbert outshot Marian 48-24. Leigh Grall made 23 saves for the Green Knights, while Amanda Alexander made 43 stops for the Sabres. St. Norbert was 2-for-6 on the power play, while Marian was 1-for-5.
