HAMBURG, N.Y. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford topped Hilbert College 6-2 Wednesday in Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference men’s soccer. With the loss, the Hawks fall to 0-8 in the AMCC and 0-13 overall.


Hilbert senior Jacob Opala (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) scored his 26th career goal to tie the score at 1-1 just before the half. The visiting Panthers scored twice early in the second stanza before Hilbert sophomore Tim Jordan (Hamburg, NY/Frontier) answered to cut the Panthers lead to 3-2. UPG added three straight goals in the last 11 minutes to round out the scoring and secure the win.


The Hawks will play their last home game of the year at 3 p.m. Oct. 23 against Penn State Altoona.
