Ripon cut into the deficit with a goal by Brianna Schnell at 78:22 and a marker from Jacie Verstegen at 81:14. But St. Norbert salted away the win with another goal by Sanderfoot, who registered the hat trick off another assist from Lech, scoring at 87:07. Sanderfoot now has nine goals on the year.
