MEQUON - St. Norbert College got a pair of third-period goals from Jillian Kosteck to erase a one-goal deficit after two periods and went on to post a 3-2 win over Concordia University Wisconsin at Ozaukee Ice Center.

The Green Knights (6-4, 5-3 NCHA) swept the weekend series from the Falcons (4-5-1, 3-5), and also took all three games in the regular-season series.

St. Norbert had to dig out of a 2-0 hole to earn the win. The Falcons' Brittany Sticha scored at 7:48 of the first period. Concordia's Chelsea Regan scored a power-play goal 1:15 into the second period for a 2-0 lead.

Myranda Hayes cut into the deficit for the Green Knights with an even-strength goal at 9:41 of the second period.

St. Norbert responded in the third period when Jillian Kosteck brought the Green Knights even at the 4:03 mark of the third period. Kosteck then scored her second game-winning goal in the last three games with the go-ahead score at 7:18.

Concordia brought an extra attacker on for the last 1:10 of the game but couldn't get back to even.

Emily Chandler assisted on both Kosteck goals to join Kosteck with a multi-point game.

St. Norbert outshot Concordia 32-18, including 27-12 in the last two periods. The Green Knights were 0-for-3 on the power play and the Falcons were 1-for-4.

Leigh Grall made 16 stops for St. Norbert and Allison Kurek made 29 saves for Concordia.
