HAMBURG, N.Y. – The Hilbert College Hawks women’s soccer team continues to search for their first Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference win after dropping a 2-0 game Wednesday to cross-town rival Medaille College. The visiting Mavericks improve to 5-7 on the year and 2-2 in conference play, while the Hawks fall to 1-6-1 overall and 0-4 in the AMCC.


Medaille’s Kerri Clarkson got the Mavericks on the board with a goal at 17:24, good enough for a 1-0 lead at the half. Any hopes of a Hilbert comeback were diminished at 83:05 when Medaille’s Tiffany Azzarito scored an insurance goal off a corner kick to end the scoring at 2-0.


Medaille keeper Lindsey Kennedy recorded 14 saves to earn the shutout, while Hilbert goalie Jackie Seifert (Grand Island, NY/Grand Island) recorded three saves in a losing effort.


The Hawks return to action at 1 p.m.Oct. 9 against AMCC member Frostburg State.
