DE PERE - St. Norbert College used a dominating first period as the impetus behind a 4-0 win over UW-Superior in a non-conference game at Cornerstone Community Center.

The Green Knights received their fourth consecutive shutout between the pipes from sophomore goaltender T.J. Black, who tied an NCAA Division III record with the achievement. Black, who made 11 saves, extended his consecutive scoreless sequence to 264 minutes 47 seconds - the third longest mark in Division III history.

St. Norbert (6-1) wasted little time in brushing aside the Yellowjackets, outshooting the visitors 26-4 in the first period. The Green Knights took the early lead just 1:01 into the game on an unassisted goal by Blake Thompson, who scored going bar down.

Sean Campbell then put St. Norbert ahead 2-0 at 3:19 with a shot from the circle finding its way into the cage. The Green Knights extended their lead to 3-0 on a power-play goal by Roman Uchyn at 7:40 of the frame.

The Green Knights scored an insurance goal in the second period when Noah Nelson scored shorthanded off an assist from a hustling Steven Phillips at 9:40.

Thompson recorded an assist to give him a two-point game, the only multi-point game for the Green Knights.

St. Norbert outshot Superior 38-11 for the game, with Yellowjackets' goaltender Bryce Fink making 34 saves.

The Green Knights were 1-for-5 on the power play, while Superior was 0-for-6.
