HAMBURG, NY – Lake Erie College’s Angela Bethel scored what would be the game winner at 30:09 to lift the visiting Storm over Hilbert College 2-0 on Tuesday afternoon in Hamburg. Despite a solid nine-save performance by Hilbert keeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls), the Hawks offense failed to produce a goal and were shutout for the seventh time this season.

With a 1-0 lead midway through the second half, the Storm’s Emma Hoskins upped the lead to 2-0 thanks to an assist from Bethel at 73:06. A stiff Lake Erie defense allowed just one shot on keeper Jacque Lombardi as the Hawks were unable to muster many scoring chances.

Hoskins, who assisted on the game winner, joined Bethel with a three-point performance for the 5-10, 2-5 Storm.

The Hawks (2-10-1, 0-4-1) will look forward to another home match on Saturday as Mount Aloysius College comes to town for a 1:00 pm match.
