DE PERE - St. Norbert College put together one of its most complete games of the season in a 4-0 win over College of St. Scholastica in a semifinal game of the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association Harris Cup Playoffs at the Cornerstone Community Center.

The Green Knights (20-5-1) will face Adrian College on Saturday, March 4 in Adrian, Mich., for the Harris Cup championship. It's the third consecutive year St. Norbert has traveled to Adrian for the Harris Cup final.

St. Norbert was in complete command of the game from the outset, taking a 2-0 lead just nine minutes in. The Green Knights built a 4-0 lead after two periods, where they outshot the Saints 24-6 in the first 40 minutes.

Ross Pavek got the scoring started when he finished a nice backhand play at the 7:26 mark of the first periods. Riley Christensen followed 96 seconds later when he puffed the net on a power-play goal for his 10th marker of the season.

Tanner Froese put the Green Knights ahead 3-0 with a power-play goal at 12:36 of the second period. Froese's goal was unassisted and his team-high 13th of the season. Sean Campbell followed at 15:17 of the second period for a power-play goal, his seventh score overall this season.

St. Norbert outshot St. Scholastica 36-14. The Green Knights were 3-for-6 on the power play, while the Saints were 0-for-4.

T.J. Black made all 14 saves to earn his NCAA Division III-leading sixth shutout of the season. Zane Steeves made 32 stops for St. Scholastica.
