Hamburg, NY – The Hawks hosted the Cougars from Chatham College on Sunday September 12th and posted a 4-0 win. Hilbert came out with an aggressive attitude to get back on track on this season. Freshman forward Sarah Schmidt (Rochester, NY/ Irondequoit) opened the scoring with the team’s first shot on goal 3 minutes into the game. Schmidt’s goal was a breakaway slotted by junior midfielder Julie Bossard (Arkport, NY/Canisteo-Greenwood). The Hawks second goal of the half was scored by sophomore Katie Newton (Elba, NY/Elba) and assisted by classmate Nicole Blair (Syracuse, NY/ East Syracuse Minoa). With the 2-0 lead heading into the second half, Hilbert continued to get shots at the net. Junior midfielder Alyssa Hulbert (Tonawanda, NY/Tonawanda) dribbled through the Cougars defense to score the third goal in the 74th minute. Schmidt assisted Hulbert on her second goal of the game with nine minutes left to play with a nicely placed ball. The women continued the attack on the Cougars out shooting them (29-4) and dominated in corner kicks (7-0). Junior goalkeeper Mary Zinni (Batavia, NY/Batavia) posted her second shutout with 2 saves for the afternoon. The Hawks move to 2-4 on the season and Chatham drops to 0-5.
