DE PERE - St. Norbert College scored four goal in each half and rolled to an 8-1 non-conference win over Wisconsin Lutheran College at Schneider Stadium.

The eight-goal output is the most for the Green Knights (3-2) since they posted a 9-0 win at Cornell College on Oct. 18, 2014.

Wisconsin Lutheran (3-2-1) drew first blood when Juan Serna scored on a rebound finish just 61 seconds into the game. The Warriors would hold the lead until the 13:50 mark, when Anthony Pineda found Ben Prange on a play off a set piece for the equalizer. Prange scored again when he took a pass from Seth Boldt and took a bounding ball and finished cleanly for a 2-1 edge at 28:56.

Drew Checolinski put St. Norbert ahead 3-1 when he converted a 27-yard blast at 37:12, while Jon Gregory cashed in 25 seconds later on a tough angle shot into the upper left corner to give the Green Knights a 4-1 halftime lead.

St. Norbert augmented its lead when Hunter Sullivan scored on a header off a corner kick at 64:23 and then finished a give-and-go at 66:35. Ryan Hansen scored at 70:02, and Javier Gongora added the final score on a drive from 32 yards out at 77:32.

Pineda and Brandon DiOrio finished with two assists apiece.

St. Norbert outshot Wisconsin Lutheran 25-5 and had a 4-0 edge in corner kicks. Three St. Norbert goalkeepers - Matt Pilewski, Ben Holtzen and Max Handrich - combined to make one save.
