Augsburg (5-4-1) answered 47 seconds later with a power-play goal by Ashley Kloncz, but the Green Knights responded at 16:11 with a power-play goal of their own by Reaghan Chadwick. It was Chadwick's sixth goal of the season.

Neither team would score in the third period and neither team had a power play in the final 20-minutes of action.

Chadwick and Chandler both had assists to give each a two-point game.

St. Norbert outshot Augsburg 27-18. Leigh Grall made 17 saves for the Green Knights and Erika Allen made 24 stops for the Auggies.

St. Norbert was 1-for-3 on the power play and Augsburg was 1-for-2.
