GREENVILLE, PA – The Hilbert College women’s soccer team got back on the winning track with a 2-1 victory at Thiel College on Tuesday. The Hawks overwhelmed the Tomcats 23-2 in shots and with the win improve to 2-5-1 on the year.

Hilbert’s Samantha Cevaer (Ransomville, NY/Ransomville) opened the scoring early after connecting on a pass from Tricia Knight (Sardinia, NY/Pioneer) at 3:58. The Hawks kept the pressure on by owning an 11-1 shot advantage and settling for the 1-0 lead at the half.

In the second half, Knight set up Christina DiSano (Spencerport, NY/Spencerport) at 57:54 and the visitors had a 2-0 cushion while continuing to press Tomcats’ keeper Jill Harry. Thiel (1-5-1) kept things interesting when Sarah Thompson cut the deficit to 2-1 at 77:22, but that was as close as the home team would get.

Hilbert keeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) recorded just one save on the afternoon while her counterpart Harry turned away 13, including eight from the foot of Knight.

The Hawks will travel to meet the Alfred University Saxons on Thursday night at 7:00 pm.
