ERIE, PA – Playing their first contest in eight days, the Hilbert College softball team dropped a doubleheader at Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) foe Penn State Behrend on Monday. The Behrend Lions (20-4, 7-1) took game one 11-0 before squeaking out a 3-1 win in game two to drop the Hawks to 4-13 overall and 2-6 in the AMCC.

In game one, Behrend’s Julie Koman pitched a two-hit shutout while fanning 10 Hilbert batters. Amber Fie (Olean, NY/Olean) and Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) collected the Hawks only hits as Kate Moyer (Scio, NY/Scio) suffered the loss on the mound.

Scoreless until the fourth inning of game two, the Behrend Lions got on the board first with three runs before the Hawks responded with a run in the fifth before ending the inning with the bases loaded. Four costly errors erased a quality performance by Hawks pitcher Meghan Gollaher (Rochester, NY/Spencerport) (2-7) who was charged with the loss. Fie was two for three from the plate with a double while Jeanette Testa (Forestville, NY/Forestville) recorded a triple and Laura Stranc (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) singled and drove in the lone run.

Hilbert will return to action on Wednesday, April 12th as the Hawks travel to Lake Erie College for an important doubleheader against the conference’s fourth place team.
