The only action between the pipes for either team during the first forty-five minutes was at 4:48 when Dawn Torlish scored for Alfred. Both teams played even the rest of the half but Alfred scored 13 minutes after intermission. Hilbert turned up the heat and reversed the first half offensive numbers. The Hawks were credited with six shots to Alfred’s one, but Sanjo Scheer was just too good in net and earned the shut-out for the Saxons.

Sarah Schmidt returned to action and attempted three shots, one more than defensive back Nicole BlairErin Smith made three saves.

The Hawks host their home opener September 15 against Hiram College at 1pm.
