PITTSBURGH, PA - Hilbert’s women’s soccer team completed their Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference (AMCC) schedule on a strong note on October 24 with a road victory over La Roche College, 2-1. Since Hilbert joined the AMCC in 2004, La Roche has always found a way to win the battle of the grass until this most recent meeting. Coach James Ruggiero said “These players played their hearts out. Our defense played very strong and our offensive players made the most of what they had.” He continued, “It was quite frankly a nice win.”
