Hamburg, NY - The Penn State Behrend women’s soccer team blew out of town with an 8-2 victory over Hilbert College on October 20 forcing at two-way tie for first place in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference standings. The Hawks were down 4-0 at half time and gave up the fifth goal 25 minutes into the second half before Alyssa Hulbert (Tonawanda, NY/Kenmore East) scored her first of two goals during the windy afternoon game. All second half scoring (4 goals by Behrend and two goals by Hilbert) occurred in an eight minute span (70 minute to 78th minute mark) to keep the game entertaining. 

Not only did Hulbert score two goals in the game, but three of Behrend’s players did the same. Erin McCreary opened the game scoring at 9 minutes and finished Behrend’s damage at 76 minutes. Goals three and four for the visitors were scored by Dana Saunders and wrapped around Hulbert’s first goal was Valerie Wagner’s double-dippers.
In the loss, the Hawks were able to score their first goal against Behrend since joining the conference in 2004. Hulbert earned her third game of the season where she scored two or more goals in one game. Hilbert drops to 1-6 in league standings and 4-11 overall.
Penn State Behrend is now sharing the top seed in tourney with Penn State Altoona whom they tied 1-1 on October 16. Hilbert’s next test is on the road at Altoona this weekend (October 23) before they return home to host senior day against Medaille on October 27th.
