GREENSBURG, PA – In a game where goal scoring seemed to clump together, Mario Williams doubled up in the points category as Hilbert earned a 6-4 victory over Pitt-Greensburg in men’s soccer September 28. With the AMCC win, the Hawks moved to 2-1 (4-5-1 overall) and sit in an early season three-way tie for third place.
Jordan Lynch opened the scoring just one minute and fifty-eight seconds into the game off a Williams feed before Greensburg responded with their first score off a corner kick at 11:08. After twenty-four minutes of scoreless play, the Bobcats broke the seal at 35:59. Ed Minkel (James Knapp assist) answered at 39:19 just before Jonathan Davison broke for an unassisted goal fifteen seconds later giving Hilbert a 3-2 half time hold.
Williams netted two more times by 48:27, less than three minutes into the second half extending the Hawks lead (5-2). Greensburg’s Max Paolone earned two goals which were wrapped around Davison’s second goal (85:16).
Hilbert outshot Greensburg 15-12 and held a 11-6 shots on goal advantage. Jeremy Kraska earned his first win in goal (1-5-1) making five saves in 90 minutes. Williams was credited with two assists while Knapp, Lynch and Ryan Leljedal earned one.
The Hawks have a six day break from competition before they host Franciscan University October 6 with a 3pm kick.
