DE PERE - St. Norbert College played one of its most complete games of the season as the Green Knights romped to a 7-0 win over Northland College in a Northern Collegiate Hockey Association game at Cornerstone Community Center.

The Green Knights (11-4-3, 7-3-1 NCHA) entered the game just one point ahead of Northland (7-9-2, 5-4-2) in the league standings. But St. Norbert scored three first-period goals to take control and held the game in its grasp throughout. Seven different players scored goals for the Green Knights.

St. Norbert cashed in on its first power-play opportunity, when Riley Christensen scored his team-high 10th goal of the season when he scored into an open left side from the slot at 5:28. Keegan Milligan added a backhander at 11:45 for his third goal of the season. Peter Bates' marker at 14:06 - his fifth of the year - chased Northland's starting goaltender David Krejcik.

The Green Knights added a goal in the second period when Timmy Nicksic redirected a pass from directly out front at the 16:31 mark for his fourth of the season.

St. Norbert added to its lead when Dominick Sacco scored 22 seconds into the third period, his eighth of the year. Peyton Frantti added another power-play goal at 12:16, his fourth overall on the year. Steven Mather then scored his first goal of the season with a score at 16:40.

Mather, Christensen, Milligan and Sacco all had an assist for two-point games. Roman Uchyn, Logan Froberg, Brad Pung and Brendon Gysbers all had two assists apiece.

St. Norbert outshot Northland 42-16. The Green Knights were 2-for-3 on the power play, while the Lumberjacks were 0-for-2.

T.J. Black made 16 saves for his 17th career shutout. Krejcik made 10 saves in the start for Northland, while Victor Forslund had 25 stops in relief.
