The Green Knights pulled away when Logan Block scored at 43:21. Drew Checolinski then added a backbreaker just eight seconds before halftime off a Jon Gregory assist for his third goal of the season.

Luis Jorgensen scored on a header at 74:17 off a Joe Minneci assist. Ripon scored with one second remaining on a goal by Christian Martinez.

St. Norbert outshot Ripon 23-7 and had a 3-2 edge in corner kicks. Three Green Knight goalkeepers combined to make four saves.
