POTSDAM, NY – The Clarkson University women’s soccer team picked up their first win of the season on Saturday with a 3-0 shutout against Hilbert College. The loss drops the lady Hawks to 1-5 on the season while the Golden Knights improve to 1-3-1.

A disallowed goal early in the first half prevented the visiting Hawks from jumping on the scoreboard first, and awoken the Golden Knights’ Ariana Zcech who tucked home the game’s first goal at 24:03.

In the second half, two long shots beat Hilbert keeper Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) and Clarkson’s defense stiffened to keep the Hawks off the scoreboard. Catie Reed scored from 30 yards out at 53:20 and teammate Hannah Henley finished a Reed dish at 65:44 from almost the same spot to close out the scoring.
The Knights held a 20-0 lead in shots and a 7-0 advantage in corner kicks while picking up the victory. For the Hawks, Goodwin recorded 10 saves on the day before giving way to backup Brianna Jerreld (Eden, NY/Eden) who recorded one save in a losing effort.

The Hawks will regroup for their Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) opener next weekend at Penn State Altoona. Kick-off against the Lions is scheduled for 6:00 pm at Spring Run Stadium.
