HAMBURG, NY – The Hilbert College women’s soccer team tied visiting Lake Erie College 2-2 on Tuesday afternoon in Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) action. Tied 2-2 at the half, both teams failed to score in the second-half as the game went scoreless for two-10 minute overtime periods before ending.

The host Hawks trailed 1-0 before Janelle Kalies (Waterville, NY/Waterville) scored on an unassisted goal at 17:20 to make it 1-1. Trailing 2-1 With 1:10 remaining in the first-half, the Hawks again rallied for a tying goal when Amber Balseca (Newfane, NY/Newfane) found the back of the net to knot the score at 2-2. Jeannette Testa (Forestville, NY/Forestville) and Rosanne Gawronski (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) recorded assists on the play.

Both teams had scoring chances throughout the second-half and overtime periods, but strong goaltending from the Storm’s Jane Roberts and Hilbert’s Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) prevented either team from pulling out a win. Robert’s finished with nine saves while Goodwin turned away eight on the day.

The Hawks (4-7-1/0-4-1) will regroup for their last regular season home game on Saturday, October 15th against Mount Aloysius College. Start time is scheduled for 1:00 pm.
