The Hilbert College women's soccer team fell 3-0 at the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg on Saturday afternoon.

The Hawks fell in a 3-0 hole 15 minutes into the contest and were never able to recover.

"We got off to a slow start today, allowing goals on each of the first three shots," said head coach Jamie Ruggiero. "That put us in a tough spot and after that they just sat back and defended."

The Hawks return to action on Oct. 7 at 4 p.m., when Medaille College visits Hamburg.
