HAMBURG, NY – Junior Tricia Knight (Arcade, NY/Pioneer) recorded a hat-trick and the Hilbert College women’s soccer team earned a 4-0 victory over D’Youville College on Wednesday. The Hawks (3-0) recorded their third straight victory and have yet to be scored upon in their best start in nine years.

Knight opened the scoring just 6:05 into the game and teammate Maggie Fage (Delmar, NY/Bethlehem) answered at 38:20 to give the Hawks a 2-0 halftime lead. Knight found the back of the net again at 57:08 and less than two minutes later at 58:20. Hilbert’s Rosanne Gawronski (West Seneca, NY/West Seneca West) picked up two assists on the day and keeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) secured the shutout.

The visiting Spartans were paced by keeper Heather Russell who turned away 13 shots in a busy afternoon.

Hilbert hits the road for a 2:00 pm game this Saturday at Brockport State. The Golden Eagles are currently 2-0 after winning the Marietta College Tournament last weekend.
