The 2nd-ranked St. Norbert College Green Knights outshot top-ranked UW-Eau Claire in an early season NCAA Division 3 hockey clash 32-17 and
rolled to a 5-2 victory at the Cornerstone Community Center.
Last nights game marked the first time St. Norbert (7-0) faced one of the five WIAC schools since they departed from the NCHA to form their own conference after last season. The Green Knights will take on another of those teams, UW-Stout tonight.
The Knights went 1-3-1 against the defending NCAA champion Blugolds last season.
After a scoreless first period, the Green Knights scored 4-goals in the second to take a 4-1 lead and never look back.
It was an early season matchup, but it’s one the Green Knights will draw from as they measure where they are in the early going. The loss was the first of the season for the Blugolds.
