HAMBURG, NY – The University of Pitt-Greensburg’s Brittney Miller scored the game winning goal and assisted on a late insurance goal to lift the visiting Bobcats to a 2-1 victory over Hilbert College. Saturday’s Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) loss drops the Hawks to 2-7-1 overall and 0-1-1 in conference play.
Miller would connect on the only goal needed at 36:40 off a pretty feed from Danielle Struble and the visitors had a 1-0 lead at the intermission. Hilbert keeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) would record her only two saves of the game during the first 45 minutes of play, but it wouldn’t be enough to rally a win.
Struble would beat Goodwin on an unassisted goal with 4:30 remaining in the game and the Bobcats’ Dana Huether would stand tall between the pipes to earn the shutout. Huether recorded three saves on the day to help the Bobcats improve to 3-7-1 and 2-1 in the AMCC.
The Hawks will regroup for an important AMCC match at Medaille College Wednesday night. Kick-off at All-High Stadium is scheduled for 6:00 pm.
