The Hilbert College men’s soccer team fell 1-0 to Frostburg State, on Saturday afternoon. With the loss the hawks fall to 3-9 on the season, 1-4 in AMCC matches.

The Hawks and Bobcats played to a scoreless first half, with the Hawks stingy defense putting a great deal of pressure on Frostburg State.

In the 51st minute Frostburg State lit the lamp on a free kick opportunity, scoring the game’s only goal.

Freshman keeper Scott Walker (Rochester, NY/Bishop Kearney) made several exceptional saves to keep the Hawks in the game. Walker finished with 10 saves on the afternoon.

The Hawks return to the field Oct. 17 at Wells College.
