Amherst, NY – Hilbert College played the Daemen College Wildcats on September 13th at Amherst High School and fell short with in a 2-1 loss.  The Hawks scored first in the 15th minute of the game when sophomore forward Ed Sarcione (Eden, NY/Eden) volleyed the ball in to the upper 90 past the keeper for his first goal of the season.  The Wildcats’ Kyle Clifford scored to tie the game in the last 3 minutes of the first half.  Clifford then opened the second half with the game winning goal just 3 minutes in. 
This fast paced match was a physical battle even though on paper Daemen had the better stats outshooting the Hawks (24-3) and capitalizing on their corner kick advantage (5-1).  Junior goalkeeper Kamil Cislak (Lancaster, NY/ Lancaster) had a great game with 14 saves on the night.  The Hawks fall to 0-4 in the season where the Wildcats advance to 4-1.
The Hawks hope to get back on track as they travel to play SUNY IT on Wednesday, September 15th.
