HAMBURG, NY – Hiram College took a quick two-goal lead and never looked back in earning a 4-0 shutout win over the Hilbert College women’s soccer team on Friday. The Terriers’ Claire Conner scored just 7:00 minutes into the contest before adding a second goal at 14:25 to propel the visitors’ offensive charge.

Hiram’s Courtney Cosley assisted on the two first half goals before netting one of her own at 51:00 thanks to a feed from Sara Davidson. Lacey Eisenberg connected on the Terriers fourth and final goal with 2:19 remaining to complete the scoring on the day.

Hilbert freshman Brianna Jerreld (Eden, NY/Eden) relieved starting goalie Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) in the second half as each keeper recorded four saves on the day. Hiram’s Emily Bristol stopped two shots on goal to preserve the Terriers (2-1) shutout.

The Hawks (1-3) will next prepare for a showdown with SUNYAC power Brockport State on Monday at 4:00 pm in Hamburg.
