St. Norbert's Allie Patrick scored an unassisted goal at 13:50 to bring the Green Knights to within 3-1 after two periods.

Lake Forest's Michelle Greeneway scored shorthanded at 1:56 of the third period for a 4-1 lead, but Jillian Kosteck scored a power-play goal at 7:46 to bring the Green Knights to within two. Holly Lesperance scored at 9:24 for Lake Forest, followed by a Lauren Roethlisberger goal for St. Norbert at 16:37.

Greeneway's empty-net goal with 47 seconds left was the game's final goal.

Patrick added an assist for a two-point game for the Green Knights.

Lake Forest outshot St. Norbert 27-13. Brianna Kelly made 21 saves for the Green Knights, while Allie Carter made 10 stops for the Foresters.
