DE PERE - St. Norbert College got a third-period goal from Brad Pung to account for the difference in a 2-1 win over Lawrence University in a Northern Collegiate Hockey Association game at Cornerstone Community Center.

Pung scored unassisted on a shot from the right slot at the 7:56 mark of the third period to snap a 1-1 tie. It was Pung's fifth goal of the year and his team-high second game-winning goal of the season.

Lawrence took the early lead with a goal from Mikkel Joehnk just 1:49 into the game. The Green Knights would get the goal back before the end of the first period, when Tanner Froese finished off a nice passing combination from Tyler Andrews and Blake Thompson for a power-play goal at 19:31.

St. Norbert killed off part of a major penalty and a 5-on-3 situation in the second period and stayed even heading into the third period.

Heavy pressure by St. Norbert in the Lawrence zone did not allow the Vikings to pull goaltender Evan Cline until 30 seconds remaining. Lawrence did not get a quality scoring chance in that time to net the equalizer.

St. Norbert outshot Lawrence 26-10. Tony Kujava made nine saves for the Green Knights, while Cline made 24 saves for the Vikings.

The Green Knights were 1-for-8 on the power play, while Lawrence was 0-for-3.
