DE PERE, Wis. - St. Norbert College used a dominant first half to take control of a 33-6 Midwest Conference win over Ripon College at Schneider Stadium.

The Green Knights (2-1, 2-0 MWC) held the Red Hawks (2-1, 1-1 MWC) to 55 yards in the first half en route to a 27-0 halftime lead. St. Norbert's victory was its 14th in the last 15 meetings with Ripon.

Ripon reached the St. Norbert 25-yard line on the game's opening possession but Red Hawks' quarterback Tom Sawyer was sacked twice to end the possession on downs. The Green Knights then marched 59 yards in 12 plays, finished by a Brad Boockmeier 1-yard touchdown run with 2:48 left in the first quarter.

A blocked punt late in the first quarter set St. Norbert up at the Ripon 23-yard line, and needed only five plays to score on a 2-yard touchdown pass from James Tringali to Patrick Burke for a 14-0 lead.

Midway through the second quarter, a Sawyer pass was intercepted by Frank Laterza near midfield. Two plays later, Tringali hit Boockmeier down the middle of the field for a 51-yard touchdown pass with 8:47 left before halftime.

On Ripon's next series, Sawyer was intercepted again, with Zach Klarkowski's 46-yard return to the Ripon 1-yard line leading to Tringali's 1-yard touchdown run for a 27-0 advantage.

Each team scored just one touchdown in a brisk second half, with the game lasting a quick 2 hours 21 minutes. Ripon mounted a 13-play, 73-yard drive, with Stephen Covalt finding Nathan Silloway for a 17-yard touchdown pass with 4:09 left in the third quarter.
