HAMBURG, N.Y. – Lycoming College (6-1-1) raced to a 4-0 halftime lead before picking up two late second-half goals en route to a 6-0 win Monday over Hilbert College in men’s collegiate soccer.

The Hawks failed to score for the third straight game and fall to 0-5 on the season.


Zach Tanner and Tony Komons led the offensive attack for the visiting Warriors with two goals each. Jeff Kocher scored the game-winning goal in the sixth minute off an assist from Ryan Wertz.  Kocher assisted on three of the other goal, as well. Troy Watson accounted for Lycoming’s other goal.


Hilbert keeper Tim Weiden (Derby, NY/Lake Shore) recorded nine saves on the afternoon against a very powerful Warriors offense.


The Hawks are at home at 4 p.m. Sept. 25 against Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference member La Roche College.
