ASTON, Pa. - St. Norbert College broke out offensively with a season-high eight goals in posting an 8-2 win over Neumann University in a non-conference game at IceWorks Skating Complex.

The victory snapped a rare four-game losing streak for the Green Knights (3-7), who will close out the first half of the regular-season with a home-and-home Northern Collegiate Hockey Association series against Concordia University Wisconsin next weekend.

Neumann (2-6) drew first blood when Zac Boyle scored a power-play goal just 5:23 into the game. The Green Knights responded later in the period when Peyton Frantti scored at 14:16 on a delayed penalty. Frantti then put the Green Knights ahead just 33 seconds later for a power-play marker and a 2-1 lead that would carry into first intermission.

St. Norbert scored a pair of second-period goals to gain some breathing room. Ben Schmidling scored his first collegiate goal at 9:33 of the frame, while Kurt Black scored at 18:34 for a 4-1 edge.

Neumann would cut the deficit to 4-2 just 1:26 into the third period on a goal by Thomas Mansbridge. St. Norbert would salt the game away when Schmidling scored a pair of goals with a power-play goal at 11:35 and another goal at 12:57. Schmidling was playing just 21 miles from his hometown of Hockessin, Del., in fashioning the hat trick.

Black finished his team-high seventh goal of the year with a score at 16:05 and Brendan Mark closed out the scoring with a goal at 19:12.

In addition to Schmidling's three points, Black and Frantti each had an assist for three-point games. Peter Bates added three assists for a three-point game. Dominick Sacco, Brendan Aird and Tim Nicksic all had two assists for two points.

St. Norbert outshot Neumann 44-30. Colby Entz made 28 saves for the Green Knights in his first collegiate game. Mike Cosentino made 36 saves for Neumann.

St. Norbert was 2-for-4 on the power play, while Neumann was 1-for-2.
