Mitchell Scholz carried the ball deep into the Whitewater defensive end before sending a pass through the crease to Seth Boldt, who converted at 68:11 for his 11th goal of the season.

St. Norbert had a couple quality chances in the final 10 minutes, but Whitewater goalkeeper Jake King made two difficult saves to keep the Warhawks within striking distance. The Green Knights' defense held down the stretch, enabling Josh Koleske to finish with a clean sheet behind a four-save effort.
