ASHLAND - St. Norbert College pushed its winning streak to seven consecutive games with a 6-4 win over Northland College in a Northern Collegiate Hockey Association game at Bay Area Civic Center.

Jared Hester, Jacob Jeske and Kalib Ford scored at 17:32, 18:36 and 18:59, respectively to draw Northland even.
