Kehl and Chris Hillesheim each had RBI singles in the second inning.

Carroll cut it to 8-3 in the fourth but St. Norbert answered with three runs in the fourth, getting a two-run single by Jordan Powers and an RBI single by Matt Hannon.

St. Norbert banged out 21 hits in the first game, getting three each from Jandron, Fisher, Way and Hillesheim. Powers, Hannon, Yost and Kehl each had two hits. Ryan Sullivan pitched a complete game, allowing nine hits with two walks and four strikeouts.
