HAMBURG, NY – The University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg Bobcats came from behind to defeat Hilbert College 6-2 Saturday and prevent the Hawks from winning their first conference game of the season. The loss drops the Hawks to 3-6 on the year and 0-3 in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC).

Hilbert’s Michelle Greco (Jamestown, NY/Southwestern) opened the scoring 11:36 into the game on a one-timer from Cristina DiSano (Spencerport, NY/Spencerport) to give the host Hawks the early 1-0 lead. UPG answered at 35:17 and again at 39:32 to take a 2-1 lead at the half.

In the second stanza, the Bobcats scored three unanswered goals before Hilbert’s Lucy Zver (Jasper, NY/Jasper-Troupsburg) connected on a pass from Rosanne Gawronski (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) to cut the UPG lead to 5-2 with just over 15 minutes to play. UPG’s Jen McIntosh added an unassisted insurance goal at 87:18 to ice the win and push the Bobcats (4-4-1/2-0-1) into sole possession of third place in the AMCC. Hilbert keeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) stopped 10 shots in a losing effort.

The Hilbert College women’s soccer team returns to action at AMCC rival Medaille College on Wednesday, October 5th. Start time is scheduled for 4:00 pm.
