BUFFALO, NY – League leading Medaille College rang up a 4-1 half-time lead and never looked back in topping the visiting Hilbert College Hawks 5-1 on Tuesday in men’s collegiate soccer action. The host Mavericks pushed their record to 11-1-1 overall and 4-0 in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC).

Medialle’s Chris Griffiths scored at 9:02 into the game, but the 1-0 lead was short lived as Hilbert’s Tim Jordan (Hamburg, NY/Frontier) knotted the score at 1-1 on a penalty kick at 20:40. The Mavericks Ryan Mangano made it 2-1 and Cory Cwiklinski scored two of his three goals before the half to keep the home team in the lead.

Cwiklinski’s hat-trick gives him seven goals against the Hawks this year as the junior forward recorded four goals in an earlier meeting back on September 6th.

Hilbert Keeper Tim Wieder (Derby, NY/Lake Shore) turned away four shots before being relieved by Tom Cone (Rapid City, SD/Lincoln) to start the second-half. Cone stopped eight shots for the Hawks (2-7/1-3) in a losing effort.

The Hilbert College men’s soccer team hits the road this weekend for an important AMCC contest against the Frostburg State Bobcats. Starting time is scheduled for 3:00 pm Saturday, October 8th.
