CRESSON, Pa. – Mount Aloysius College scored six unanswered goals in the second half to upend the winless Hilbert College men’s soccer team 7-3 in Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) action.  Mount Aloysius improved to 2-10 on the season and 2-4 in AMCC play, while Hilbert is now 0-12, and 0-7 in conference play.


Tim Jordan (Hamburg, NY/Frontier) led the Hawks with three assists, while Dan Russell (Marilla, NY/Iroquois) notched two goals and an assist as the Hawks jumped out to a 3-1 lead at halftime.  Mount Aloysius proved to be too much in the end, dashing the Hawks hopes for their first victory of the season.


Jacob Opala (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) also netted a goal for Hilbert, improving his career goal-scoring record total to 25. 


The Hawks next face the University of Pitt-Bradford in a home conference match at 4 p.m. Oct. 20.
