Hamburg, NY – The Hilbert men’s soccer team flies high over the La Roche Red Hawks in a 2-0 victory. The Hawks first goal was scored by sophomore captain James Knapp (Lockport, NY/St. Mary’s Lancaster) in the upper 90 of the net off a pass from center midfielder Dave Walkow (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West)

Hilbert played with high intensity and quick play as they caught the Red Hawks off guard again when they scored another goal in the 27th minute. Ed Scarcione (Eden, NY/Eden) scored his eighth goal of the season blowing one by the keeper off a long pass by defender Ed Heffron (Williamsville, NY/Cardinal O’Hara). The Hawks held their lead through the scoreless second half, and held a 20-18 shot advantage in this tightly played match. Hilbert’s  goalkeeper Kamil Cislak (Lancaster, NY/Lancaster) made 9 saves.

This win keeps the Hilbert men’s soccer team in serious contention in the AMCC Conference playoffs, now tied with La Roche with 10 points each good for 5th place. Hilbert is 3-10-1 in the season but 3-2-1 in league play.
The Hawks look to secure their spot in the AMCC playoffs with a home contest against Penn State Behrend on Wednesday, October 20th at 3pm.
