HAMBURG, NY – Despite mustering just one shot on Penn State Behrend goalie Kayla Frost, the Hilbert College women’s soccer team found a way to battle the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference’s (AMCC) top team to a tie Wednesday afternoon. Neither team could find the back of the net and after 110 minutes of action, the two tired teams settled for a 0-0 draw.

Boasting the conference’s best record at 7-0, Penn State Behrend couldn’t solve Hilbert keeper Kellie Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls). The Lions held a commanding 32-3 advantage in shots, but only eight were on the mark and Goodwin denied every attempt that came her way.

Behrend’s Nikki Frisbee entered the contest as the AMCC’s fourth leading scorer (1.60 gpg), but Goodwin brought her “A-Game” and refused to allow a goal for the third straight contest.

The Lions check in at 8-5-3 overall and 7-0-1 in league play while still holding ownership of first place. Hilbert remains in eighth place with a record of 4-10-2, 1-4-2.

Hilbert will take to the road this Saturday for a meeting with La Roche College at 1:00 pm in Pittsburgh, PA.
