Hamburg, NY – The Hilbert women’s soccer team traveled to the Alfred Classic at Alfred University this past weekend, September 4-5. The Hawks opened the tournament against SUNY Potsdam and suffered a rough 7-0 loss on Saturday.  The Hawks bounced back Sunday playing a tough, competitive game against Alfred University, but lost 2-1. Alfred opened the scoring in the first eleven minutes by senior Liz Gramham, then added their second goal from junior Kaitlyn Ross in the 35th minute. Alfred led at the half.  

The Hawks started the second half ready to compete. Junior Alyssa Hulbert (Tonawanda, NY/Kenmore East) put the Hawks on the board with a penalty kick in the 55th minute. This was a tough loss, but junior goalkeeper Mary Zinni (Batavia, NY/Batavia) had six saves on the evening to keep the game tight.
Hilbert’s Hulbert and sophomore Amber Grosch (Depew, NY/ Depew) received All-Tournament selections.
The Hawks are back on the road to play at Ursuline College on September 8th as they gear up for their home opener on Saturday, September 11th against Clarkson at 1pm.
