OBERLIN, OH - Erin Smith (Woodbourne, NY/Tri-Valley) had a busy day in goal for Hilbert College as the Hawks keeper faced a firing squad from the Oberlin College women’s soccer team September 2. The Yeowoman found a variety of ways to challenge Smith who was credited with 16 saves in Hilbert’s 5-0 road loss to Oberlin (1-2). 

Hilbert freshmen Courtney Vaccaro (Windsor, NY/Windsor Central) and Jackie Morgan (Linwood, NY/York) got looks at the host’s net, with Morgan’s attempt off a corner kick forcing Oberlin’s Kate Frost to make her first save on the day in the 48th minute. 
Oberlin had balanced scoring with five different players sneaking the ball past Hilbert's sophomore goalkeeper. Both Abby Weiss and Tricia Souza earned three points helping the Yeowoman earn their first victory in three tries.
The Hawks will regroup and prepare for their home opening game against Alfred University this Saturday, September 7th with a 3pm start. 
Please note, the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference alternates, on a yearly basis between the women’s and men’s programs, who plays the first game of a conference double-header. In 2013-14, the men’s teams will play the opening game. Hilbert will maintain that same playing order with non-conference double-headers contests as well.
