GREENSBURG, PA – Michelle Greco (Jamestown, NY/Southwestern) and Tricia Knight (Arcade, NY/Pioneer) scored in Hilbert’s 2-0 win at Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) foe, University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg on Saturday.

Greco’s game winning goal came at 9:00 minutes off a feed from Katrina Galofaro (Dunkirk, NY/Silver Creek) and gave the Hawks a 1-0 halftime lead.

Knight connected on an unassisted goal 18:43 into the second-half and a stiff Hilbert defense helped keeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) earn her third shutout win of the season.

Goodwin turned away eight shots while the host Bobcats (3-6-1, 1-1-1) were paced by goalie Dana Huether who made four saves on the day.

“I’m very proud of the effort we put forth,” commented Hilbert head coach James Ruggiero. “This is a great conference win against a quality opponent.”

The Hawks (5-2-1, 1-0-1) return to action on Wednesday, October 4th for a match-up with AMCC and local rival Medaille College. The home game is scheduled for 4:00 pm.
