HAMBURG, N.Y. – Hilbert College, the hottest team in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference, ran their current win streak to four with an 11-0 win Wednesday over the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford in women’s soccer action. With the win, the Hawks improve to 5-7-1 overall and 3-5 in the AMCC to keep pace with Medaille College for the last spot in the conference tournament.


Seven different Hawks scored led by sophomore Michelle Greco’s first half (Jamestown, NY/Southwestern) hat-trick. Senior Shannon Bieniek (Orchard Park, NY/West Seneca West) and freshman Christina DiSano (Spencerport, NY/Spencerport) each scored two goals and added an assist while sophomore Rosanne Gawronski (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) scored and picked up a pair of assists. Sophomore Kaitlyn Miller (Depew, NY/Depew), and freshmen Jill Kegler (Lancaster, NY/Lancaster), and Amber Justice (Arcade, NY/Pioneer) also scored in the win.


Senior Jessica Macri (Lewiston, NY/Niagara Falls) picked up her 50th career assist while Bieniek recorded career point number 101. 


“Jessica and Shannon have played tremendously during their four years and have put up some very impressive numbers. We will certainly miss them when they graduate,” said Hilbert coach James Ruggiero. 


The Hawks will recognize the efforts of Macri and Bieniek along with fellow senior Wendy Brusso (Marion, NY/Marion) when the Hawks play host to Penn State Altoona at 1 p.m. Saturday.
