CEDARBURG - A pair of St. Norbert College goals in the third period wasn't enough to lift the Green Knights, who dropped a 3-2 Northern Collegiate Hockey Association decision to Concordia University Wisconsin at Ozaukee Ice Center.

The Green Knights, who are 0-4-1 in their last five games, fell to 4-6-1 overall and 1-4-1 in the NCHA. Concordia improved to 3-6-1, 3-3-1.

Concordia took a 2-0 lead in the first period on a pair of power-play goals. Sarah Cole scored a 5-on-3 goal at 17 minutes 39 seconds, and Alyssa Isaackson coverted the other chance 31 seconds later.

St. Norbert responded in the third period when Zoe Kurth scored on the power-play at 10:57. The Falcons then had a five-minute power play after Danielle Rozon was whistled for a major roughing penalty. Concordia scored once on the major, when Samantha Meuwissen connected at 12:40.

Kurth's second power-play goal at 18:28 of the third drew the Green Knights to within 3-2, but 59 seconds of empty-net time wasn't enough to get the equalizer. Emma Agen assisted on both of Kurth's goals.

Concordia outshot St. Norbert 33-21. Kaley Gibson made 30 saves for St. Norbert, while Lea Jondal made 19 saves for the Falcons. Concordia was 3-for-9 on the power play, while the Green Knights were 2-for-8.
