Williamsville, NY – The Hilbert softball team dropped their last series of the season to Mount Aloysius College (MAC) on May 1 by scores of 12-2 and 10-1. The AMCC conference losses drop the Hawks’ record to 1-26 (0-18 AMCC).  MAC improves to 21-7 (12-2) as they prepare for the AMCC play-offs in a week.

In the first game, Hilbert held a 1-0 lead after the 1st inning, but then allowed MAC to go on a 6-run 2nd inning tear. Down 6-2 going into the 3rd inning, MAC crossed home again for 6 more runs building a 12-2 lead which closed out the scoring for the 5 inning game.   Jill Martucci (Hamburg, NY/Hamburg) went 1 for 2 and earned the RBI while Kelly Milne took the loss on the mound.
Mount Aloysius opened the second game with a 5-run first inning performance which they repeated in the 4th. Hilbert’s lone run was scored after Halsey Baker (Scio, NY/Scio) got on base with a single. She stole second before Devan Jonathan’s (Basom, NY/Akron) double sent Baker home in the bottom of the second inning.
