LAKE FOREST, Ill. - St. Norbert College rebounded in a big way from its first loss of the season, posting a 7-0 rout of Lake Forest College behind four goals from freshman Keegan Milligan in a Northern Collegiate Hockey Association game at Alumni Memorial Fieldhouse.

Milligan scored two first-period goals and then added a marker in each of the last two periods for the Green Knights. It was St. Norbert's first four-goal game since Michael Hill slammed home four goals against Northland College on Feb. 14, 2014.

The Green Knights (12-1-1, 7-0 NCHA), who lost a non-conference game 2-1 at Milwaukee School of Engineering on Tuesday, didn't waste much time taking control against the Foresters (7-7, 4-3). Milligan got things going early when he scored at 4:57 of the first period. Dominick Sacco scored a power-play goal at 13:43 of the first, while Milligan added another power-play score at 15:52 for a 3-0 lead after one period.

Milligan's goal at 5:11 of the second period was the only goal of the middle stanza.

Luke Davison scored a power-play goal at 1:51 of the third period, while Steven Mather registered his first collegiate goal just 18 seconds later. Milligan closed out the scoring at 5:28 of the period with an even-strength goal.

Several other St. Norbert players had multi-point games. Jack Thomas finished with three assists, while Nick LeSage and Roman Uchyn had two assists apiece. Davison added a helper to his goal for a two-point game.

St. Norbert outshot Lake Forest 38-15. T.J. Black made 11 saves in 47:45 of work for the Green Knights, while Ryan Bontorin turned away four shots in 12:15 in his collegiate debut. Louis Philippe De Courcy made 20 saves in 42:09 for Lake Forest, while Boyd DiClemente made 11 stops in 17:51.

St. Norbert was 3-for-7 on the power play, while Lake Forest was 0-for-6.
