Hamburg, NY – Hilbert College’s Edward Sarcione has been named as the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate  Conference’s Offensive Player of the Week for men’s soccer with the week ending October 3, 2010. The Hawks played only one game during the week, but the efforts of Sarcione (and his team mates) did not go unnoticed. The sophomore forward from Eden high school scored both goals for the Hawks in their 2-2 tie with Franciscan University of Steubenville on October 2. He first found net off a penalty kick just before half time, sending the teams to intermission with a 1-1 score. Sarcione’s second goal came with less than one second left in regulation when he headed a crossed ball past the goalie for the draw.  After an additional 20 minutes of play, the game ended in a 2-2 stalemate.

To date, Sarcione has scored five of the team’s eight goals giving him 10 points.  Earlier this season, Sarcione had another double goal game (6-4 loss to Thiel College) and he scored the team’s lone goal in the 2-1 loss to Daemen College.  The Hawks stand 0-9-1 (0-1-1, AMCC) having just started the conference portion of their schedule.
