DE PERE - Ellie Lochner's goal in the 108th minute pushed St. Norbert College past UW-Stevens Point for a 3-2 double-overtime win in a non-conference game at Schneider Stadium.

Lochner took a pass from Emilee Mytinger and ran unimpeded up the right side. Her shot was initially stopped by Stevens Point goalkeeper Olivia Mecham, but the ball squirted loose and across the goal line at 107:39.

The Green Knights (6-4-1) trailed in the second half until Aimee Conley's shot from along the goal line angled and bounced into the cage at the 53:35 mark for her first goal of the season, equalizing the score 2-2.

St. Norbert scored the match's first goal on a Greta Arshem breakaway at 12:46, her first goal of the season. Monica Stephans assisted for her team-high 15th point of the season.

Stevens Point took the lead scored two goals 1:27 apart late in the first half. Olivia Bohnert had an open shot that went bar down at 35:01. The Pointers then benefited from an own goal at 36:28.

St. Norbert outshot Stevens Point 28-8, including an 18-1 margin in the second half and two overtime periods. The Green Knights also held a 7-5 edge in corner kicks.

Maddie Plinska made five saves for the Green Knights. Mecham made nine stops for the Pointers in 69:23, while starter Sarah Peplinski made four stops in 38:16.
