DE PERE - St. Norbert College moved its unbeaten streak to five games with a 4-3 win over Concordia University Wisconsin in a Northern Collegiate Hockey Association game at Resch Olympic Pavilion.

The Green Knights (4-2-1, 4-0-1 NCHA) also moved into a first-place tie in the NCHA with College of St. Scholastica at nine points. St. Norbert is 4-0-1 since an 0-2 start to the season.

St. Norbert played from behind in the early going when Concordia's Kristen Kennedy scored at the 14:51 mark of the first period. The Green Knights promptly answered with Selena Stromer scoring her team-high fifth goal of the year with a score at 16:12 to lead to a 1-1 tie at first intermission.

The Green Knights pulled ahead with a strong second period. Rebecka Olsson scored at 10:52, while Kenna Farrey added an unassisted goal at 15:57 for a 3-1 edge. Those two goals were sandwiched around a penalty shot attempt by Concordia's Natasha Wanless, but was turned away by the Green Knights' Brianna Kelly at 13:51.

Concordia would battle back, scoring a power-play goal at 3:49 of the third period, but the Green Knights would regain their two-goal lead when Lisa Lenell's backhander was true at 6:56. The Falcons' Lexi Holman scored with 3:46 remaining, but the visitors would get no closer.

St. Norbert outshot Concordia 31-20. Kelly made 17 saves for the Green Knights, while Breanna Thomson made 27 stops for the Falcons.

Concordia was 1-for-2 on the power play, while St. Norbert was 0-for-2.
