The Hilbert College women’s soccer team dropped a 1-0 decision to visiting Bethany College on Sunday afternoon.

Lauren McAnany scored the goal for Bethany in the first stanza.

The Hawks managed 14 shots on the afternoon but were unable to convert on any of their opportunities.

Senior goalkeeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) was solid in the net for the Hawks. Goodwin made 5 saves and kept the game close for the entire 90 minutes.

“We played two quality opponents this weekend and while we did not get the results we wanted, we certainly performed well enough to win,” said head coach Jamie Ruggiero. “These two non-conference matches will definitely have us prepared for the difficult AMCC schedule; to lose three games by the same 1-0 score is tough to take though.”

The Hawks return to action Sept. 10 at home against AMCC rival D’Youville Colllege, with game time set for 4 p.m.
