Elmira, NY – The Hilbert men’s soccer team was coming off back to back victories when they traveled to Elmira College for a non-conference match on October 14th. The host team took full advantage of their home field advantage and shocked the Hawks early in the match to take a 6-1 win. Elmira had a 4-1 lead in the game’s first 15 minutes of play and cruised to a 5-1 lead at half time. The Soaring Eagles held a (21-4) “shots” advantage in the first 45 minutes of play forcing freshman goalie Jeremy Kraska (Elma, NY/Iroquois) into 9 saves.
