PITTSBURGH, PA – After dropping a 2-0 conference game Saturday to La Roche College, the Hilbert College women’s soccer team rebounded to beat Chatham College 7-0 Sunday afternoon to improve to 3-4 on the season.

Against the Redhawks on Saturday, the visiting Hawks failed to find the back of the net for the fourth time this season as La Roche’s Nicole Jacobs gave the home team a 1-0 lead going into the half. The Hawks trailed by one until La Roche’s Kim Verghies’ scored at 9:47 to ice the win for the Redhawks. Hilbert keeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) stopped six shots in a losing effort.

Sunday’s game against the Chatham College Cougars was a different story as the Hawks took a 1-0 lead on Katrina Galofara’s (Dunkirk, NY/Silver Creek) first of two goals, just 3:04 into the game.

The Hawks scored six unanswered goals in the second-half to put the contest out of reach. Colleen Hanrahan (Tinton Falls, NJ/Monmouth Regional) scored and added two assists, Lucy Zver (Jasper, NY/Jasper-Troupsburg) scored and added two assists, Jenelle Kalies (Waterville, NY/Waterville) and Jackie Seifert (Grand Island, NY/Grand Island) each added a goal and an assist for the winners. Karen Kalwicki's (Sloan, NY/John F. Kennedy) late goal with just under five minutes to play rounded out the scoring. Goodwin had a quiet afternoon recording one save on the day.

The Hawks return to action at home on Tuesday, September 27th against conference foe Penn State Behrend at 2:00 pm.
