BRADFORD, PA:  Sophomore forward Julie Bossard (Arkport, NY/ Canisteo-Greenwood ) tied her career high, 16 points, in last night’s 35-71 loss to Pitt-Bradford. The last time Bossard recorded 16 points was on November 30, 2008, in a 49-81 loss to RIT.  Bossard’s career high however was not enough to get the Hawks their first win of the season. The loss drops their record to 0-16 overall and 0-11 in the conference.

The Hawks struggled offensively in the first period of play trailing, 14-42 at the half.
Second half efforts by Hilbert created a more even match up as the Hawks were only out scored 29-21.
The panthers were led by Taylor Lubi who scored 17 points and grabbed 11 rebounds in just 19 minutes of play.  Bradford evens their record at 6-6 in the AMCC with the victory.
The Hawks will travel once more this week as they take on La Roche College. The game is scheduled for a 1 pm start on Saturday, January 23.
