Hamburg, NY – The Alfred University men’s soccer team played Hilbert College on Saturday, September 18th in what would be a tightly played first half.  The first 45 minutes of action seemed to be played in the Hawks’ defensive end with the Saxons holding the advantage in the shots on goal and corner kicks. Alfred’s Mark Nesbitt blew one by goalkeeper Kamil Cislak (Lancaster, NY/Lancaster) with 3 minutes to play in the half to the upper ninety giving Alfred the 1-0 lead at half. After intermission, Alfred scored their second goal 10 minutes in to the second half and then followed with their third just another 10 minutes later.  Both teams switched goalkeepers in the 2nd half and Hawks first year keeper Jeremy Kraska (Elma, NY/Iroquois) had 3 saves on the afternoon, allowing the last Saxon goal. The Hawks fall to 0-6 on the season as the Saxons improve to 4-2-1.

The Hawks host Keuka College Monday, September 20th at 5pm.
