HAMBURG, NY – Data Jurgo’s game winning goal with 2:30 to play in regulation helped D’Youville College (1-0) to a 2-1 win over Hilbert College Wednesday in men’s collegiate soccer action.

Hilbert’s Dan Russell (Marilla, NY/Iroquois) got the Hawks on the board at 24:56 to give the home team a 1-0 advantage through the first 45 minutes of play. D’Youville evened the score at 64:20 on a goal by Matt Burns before Jurgo’s heroics at 87:30.

“We had lots of scoring opportunities, but couldn’t finish today.” Said Hawks coach Rick Couell who watches his team fall to 1-2 on the young season.

Hilbert keeper Adam Eaton (Sardinia, NY/Pioneer) made his rookie debut and recorded three saves in a losing effort.

Hilbert returns to action September 9th and 10th at the Buffalo State Invitational. The Hawks square-off against tourney host Buffalo State at 3:00 pm in the first round on Saturday.
