HAMBURG, NY – Hilbert College goalie Kelly Goodwin (Niagara Falls, NY/Niagara Falls) picked up her first shutout of the season, and Cristina DiSano (Spencerport, NY/Spencerport) netted the only goal needed in a 4-0 win over Mount Aloysius College Saturday. The Hawks pick up their first Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) win of the season and improve to 3-10-1 overall and 1-4-1 in league play.

Hilbert sophomore Maggie Fage (Delmar, NY/Bethlehem) found DiSano at 21:10 and the senior midfielder beat Mounties’ keeper Laura Deely for what would be the game-winner. Junior Jennifer Wade (Buffalo, NY/Mt. Mercy) picked up her first career goal at 27:11 and the Hawks had a 2-0 lead that would stand through the half.

In the second stanza, Hilbert’s Tricia Knight (Sardinia, NY/Pioneer) would record her 6th and 7th goals of the season to put the game out of reach. The junior forward becomes just the fourth Hilbert player to reach the 20-goal plateau. Goodwin’s shutout, the 11th of her career, was a walk in the park performance for the junior who didn’t face a shot the entire 90:00.

Deely recorded 14 saves in a losing effort for the Mounties who fall to 1-10 overall and 0-6 in the AMCC.

The Hawks will remain home through the week and next face the Wells College Express Monday afternoon at 4:00 pm.
