St. Norbert would take the lead for good with a run in the fifth inning, when Dombrowski scored on Ferraro's sacrifice fly. The Green Knights broke the game open with seven runs in the sixth inning. Dombrowski had a two-run single, while Ferraro drew a bases-loaded walk. Lucas Reynolds followed with a two-run double, while Tyler Banovich plated a run with a triple for a 14-6 lead.

The Green Knights invoked the 10-run rule with two runs in the eighth inning on RBI singles from Banovich and Grant.

St. Norbert finished with 14 hits. Banovich was 3-for-5, while Ferraro was 2-for-3 with three runs scored and three RBI. Reynolds, Grant, Dombrowski and Reinhart also had two hits apiece.
