HAMBURG, NY – The Hilbert College men’s soccer team will travel to Keuka Park, NY for the evening game against Keuka College September 5. The 2011 Hawks, along with head coach Jeff Panik, are excited to open their schedule under the lights and are looking for revenge in the 4-0 loss last season. 

In 2010, Hilbert gave up two quick goals in the game’s first 9 minutes of play and were fighting from a 3-0 deficit at the 20-minute mark.

Panik’s official home opener is set for September 7 with a 3pm kick against Wells College. 

This season, as part of an AMCC league agreement, the men’s contests will be the first game of a double-header with the women’s games to follow.
