DE PERE - St. Norbert College scored all of its goals in the second half as the Green Knights rolled to a 3-0 victory over Illinois College in a Midwest Conference match at Schneider Stadium.

The Green Knights (5-1, 2-0 MWC) had several scoring chances in the first half but came out of the first 45 minutes in a scoreless stalemate.

St. Norbert broke through at the 53:55 mark when Monica Stephans' shot was tucked just underneath the crossbar and down past the goal line for the game's first goal. Morgan Kelly was credited with an assist.

Moments later, the Green Knights doubled their lead when Sadie Jung was open out front and cleanly scored off an assist from Dana Schwab at 57:33.

Ami Zacker then closed out the scoring when her corner kick bounced in front of the net and trickled in at the 64:14 mark.

St. Norbert outshot Illinois College 20-3 and held a 5-0 edge in corner kicks. Maddie Plinska didn't make a save for the Green Knights in just over 79 minutes, while Ally Magiera had two saves in relief. Samantha Vacek made seven stops for the Lady Blues.
