The Hilbert College women’s soccer team dropped a closely played, 2-0 decision to AMCC foe Frostburg State, on Saturday afternoon. With the loss, the hawks fall to 3-9 on the season and 0-5 in AMCC play.

The Hawk’s gave up one goal in each half but forced the 1st place Bobcats to work for both tallies. Freshman goalkeeper Mary Zinni (Batavia, NY/Batavia) was stellar in the net for Hilbert, stopping 11 shots on the afternoon.

“We had a great game plan today against FSU and the team did a nice job of executing it,” said head coach Jamie Ruggiero. “If they don’t get that early goal, I think FSU might have had an even tougher time with our defense.” “This should really give us some great confidence for the remainder of the season.”

The Hawks return to action Oct. 17 at 3 p.m., at Wells College.
