HAMBURG, NY – The Hilbert College men’s soccer team build a commanding 2-0 lead early on Friday afternoon, only to surrender three late first-half goals before falling to Waynesburg College 4-2 in NCAA Division III action.

Hilbert’s Scott Lippman (Holland, NY/Holland) got the Hawks on the board early and teammate Bryan Kraska (Depew, NY/Depew) answered less than six minutes later to give the Hawks a 2-0 lead. The lead wouldn’t last as the visiting Yellow Jackets scored three unanswered goals to go ahead 3-2 at the intermission.

The Hawks mustered only four shots on goal in the second-half and Waynesburg’s Todd Schollaert added an insurance goal to ice the win for the Yellow Jackets. Hilbert keeper Tom Cone (Rapid City, SD/Lincoln) turned away four shots in a losing effort.

Next up for the Hawks is a trip across town to face local foe D’Youville College on Tuesday September 13th for a 4:00 pm game against the Spartans.
