HAMBURG, NY – Hilbert women’s soccer played host to Penn State Altoona on Saturday, October 17 on a cold and dry Saturday. The host team continued to struggle getting shots off on goal and ended up losing an Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) game 3-0, dropping the team’s conference record to 3-5 (9 points), and 6-7-2 overall. Altoona continues to fight for a top spot in the AMCC with a 4-2-1 and 11-3-1 overall record. With several key match-ups still to be played in the women’s side of conference play, rankings heading into play-offs (Saturday, October 31st) can’t be determined at this time.
