BROCKPORT, NY – After rallying to tie the score at 1-1, the Hilbert College women’s soccer team surrendered three, second-half goals and lost to Brockport State 4-1 on Saturday. The loss drops the Hawks to 3-1 on the Season while the Golden Eagles improve to 3-1.

Coming off three consecutive shutout wins, the visiting Hawks found themselves trailing 1-0 just 14:28 into the game before Michelle Greco (Jamestown, NY/Jamestown) scored at 36:47 to even the score before the first-half came to an end.

Brockport scored three unanswered goals in the second stanza and a stiff Golden Eagles defense prevented the Hawks from getting a shot on winning keeper Liz Durfee. Hilbert keeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) recorded 15 saves in a losing effort.

The Hawks return to action on September 12th when the Alfred University Saxons come to town.
