Frostburg, MD: The Hilbert softball team dropped two games to Frostburg State on Saturday afternoon losing to the Bobcats 9-1 in game one and 13-5 in game two. Both games ended in 5 innings.

Frostburg wasted no time in the first inning of the first game putting up four runs on the scoreboard off of six hits.
Carrie Sisson (Elma, NY/Mt. Mercy) registered the loss for the Hawks giving up fourteen hits in four innings from the mound.
Hilbert would earn its lone run of the game in the top of the third off of three singles from Amber Grosch (Depew, NY/ Depew) {pictured right}, Sisson and Jill Martucci (Hamburg, NY/ Hamburg). Grosch would cross home plate on Martucci’s base hit.
In game two, Hilbert took an early 3-1 lead after three innings of action. Sarah Collins (Milroy, PA/ Indian Valley) hit a single up the middle for an RBI scoring Rachel Parker (Hamburg, NY/ Hamburg) on the play. Parker would score again in the third inning off a single down the right field line from freshman Emili Ripley (Batavia, NY/ Notre Dame Catholic).
Hilbert would add two more runs in the top of fifth to tie the game at 5-5, but Frostburg’s eight-run inning would result in the 13-5 Hawk loss.
The Hawks record falls to 8-10 overall and 2-6 in the AMCC.
Action continues when Hilbert travels to Penn State Behrend for a 3 p.m. Tuesday afternoon game.
