The Hilbert College women’s soccer team honored its six seniors on Saturday afternoon at the Hilbert College soccer field, prior to their match against La Roche College. The Hawks honored Seniors Tricia Knight, Kelly Goodwin, Anna McEvoy, Jennifer Wade, Brianna Jerreld and Tanya Pohzehl.

On the field, The Hawks fell 4-1 to the Red Hawks. With the loss, the Hawks dropped to 5-11 overall and 1-7 in AMCC contests. La Roche took a 2-0 lead into the half. Hilbert countered with a tally with 32:00 to play. Freshman Alyssa Hulbert (Tonawanda, NY/Kenmore East) served a corner kick perfectly to the head of senior Tricia Knight (Sardinia, NY/Pioneer), who buried the ball for the Hawks. The goal was Knight’s 9th of the season which is a team-high. Hulbert’s helper was her 8th of the season. La Roche later added two second half goals to put the game out of reach. Hilbert outshot La Roche 10-9 in the game.

The Hawks return to action Tuesday, Oct. 28, in the regular season finale, when the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford comes to Hamburg.
