Hamburg, NY – After shooting 46% from the floor in the first half, the Hilbert women’s basketball team cooled off after intermission and score only 10 points leading to their 93-35 loss to Penn State Behrend December 8. Behrend’s Amy Oldach led all scorers with 20 points after shooting 8-11 in her team- leading 27 minutes. The full court man coverage for a majority of the game was too much pressure for the Hawks as they move to 1-6 on the season and 0-2 in league play. Behrend improves to 4-3 and 2-1.

Hilbert’s Julie Bossard and Amber Grosch (Depew, NY/Depew) {in photo to right} were the main scoring threats for the Hawks as both hit for 10 points apiece. Bossard (Arkport, NY/Canisteo-Greenwood) was able to use her long arms to deflect 4 more blocks to add to her record setting total for the season. 

On Saturday, December 11, the Hawks travel for their first road AMCC game when they face Pitt-Greensburg at 2pm.
