UTICA, N.Y. – The Hilbert College Hawks women’s soccer team fell 2-0 at SUNY Institute of Technology on Sunday, one day after losing 4-0 at home to Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference foe Penn State Altoona. The Hawks currently stand in seventh place in the AMCC with a 3-6 record, while being 5-9-1 overall.


At SUNYIT Sunday, Hilbert keeper Jackie Seifert (Grand Island, NY/Grand Island) turned away 17 shots, but allowed two second half goals in the losing effort.


Hilbert’s post -eason hopes were diminished Saturday as the Hawks failed to beat AMCC opponent Penn State Altoona. The loss gives Medaille College the sixth and final play-off spot in the upcoming AMCC conference tourney. Seifert combined with teammate Wendy Brusso (Marion, NY/Marion) to turn away seven shots in the loss. 


Hilbert seniors Brusso, Shannon Bieniek (Orchard Park, NY/West Seneca West), and Jessica Macri (Lewiston, NY/Niagara Falls) will play their final game in a Hawks uniform Oct. 27 as Wells College comes to town for a 3 p.m. game.
