Buffalo, N.Y. – The Hilbert College women’s softball team couldn’t stop the rain or the Medaille College Mavericks on Monday, falling to their North Eastern Athletic Conference rivals 5-3 at LaSalle Park. 


Hilbert trailed by two runs in the top of the sixth inning with runners on second and third but failed to score any runs. For the day, the Hawks stranded six players in scoring position while fighting rain and cold winds from nearby Lake Erie as well as some hot bats from Medaille.


Meghan Gollaher (Spencerport/Rochester, NY) pitched all five innings for the Hawks allowing five hits, including two costly home runs in the bottom of the third inning which gave the Mavericks the lead for good. The freshman pitching ace currently stands at 6-5 on the young season and contributed on the base paths yesterday by picking up two stolen bases in the losing effort.


Hilbert (6-6, 0-1) managed only four hits on the day led by Jeannette Testa’s (Forestville/Forestville, NY) fourth inning double and RBI. 


The Lady Hawks will return to action on April 2 for a 3 p.m. doubleheader at Lake Erie College.
