No. 1 St. Norbert pulls away from Men's Hockey in third period

DE PERE, Wis. – St. Norbert scored three goals in a 4:27 span early in the third period to pull away from the Concordia University Wisconsin Men's Hockey team Friday night. The 6-2 setback was the first of the season for the Falcons, who were facing the No. 1 ranked team in the country in the Green Knights.

THE BASICS
- Final Score: No. 1 St. Norbert 6, CUW 2
- Location: Cornerstone Community Center- De Pere, Wisconsin
- Records: St. Norbert 1-0, 1-0 NCHA; CUW 2-1, 0-1 NCHA

HOW IT HAPPENED
- The Falcons cut the Green Knights lead to 3-2 early in the third period as freshman Brett Garvey (Ashton, Ontario) struck with a shorthanded score 2:42 into the final frame. Unfortunately for CUW, the Green Knights took a two-goal lead right back with a power-play score 3:13 into the stanza.

- St. Norbert added two more scores, at the 5:40 and 7:40 marks, respectively, to finish off CUW with a 6-2 final.

- Dante Hahn (Victoria, British Columbia) had the other CUW goal, coming on the power play 8:53 into the second period. Mac Ferner (Vernon, British Columbia) assisted on the Hahn score, while Brumwell (Calgary, Alberta) tallied a helper on the Garvey score in the third.

- The Green Knights also had a shorthanded score on Friday, coming from Steven Phillips in with 3:20 left in the second period. Just when it looked as if CUW may have some momentum with a power play and trailing just 2-1, Phillips took it right back for St. Norbert making the score 3-1 heading into the third.
