Hamburg, NY – The Hilbert men’s soccer team lost 2-1 against SUNY Morrisville on Tuesday, September 7th .  The set-back drops their overall record to 0-2. After dominating the Mustangs the first 30 minutes, the visitors scored two quick goals in a span of two minutes sending the Hawks to the locker room in a hole. 

Hilbert continued to dominate play in the second half  and finally put a goal on the board at the 74th minute. Sophomore James Knapp (Lockport, NY/ St. Mary’s – Lancaster) fed a long  breakaway pass to  first year forward, Shawn Colvin (Elma, NY/ Iroquois) {in photo to right} who slotted the ball in the lower left corner of the net past the Morrisville keeper. Hilbert led in shots (16 -10) over the feisty Mustangs (2-1) but just didn't get one  on target to hit the back of the net.

The Hawks have three road games (Grove City on September 11; under the lights at Amherst high school against Daemen College on September 13; SUNYIT September 15) before they return home on September 18th to battle Alfred University at 3 pm.
