Athletics Update – Sept. 26

HamisterHamister Named AMCC Offensive Player of the Week
– For the second week in a row, a Hilbert College men’s soccer player has been recognized as a Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference Player of the Week.  Senior Matt Hamister earned the AMCC Offensive Player honor September 22.

Hilbert forward Matt Hamister scored three goals and added an assist in a win over Thiel College, totaling seven points. He was instrumental in the Hawks taking an early three-goal lead in the first ten minutes of the non-conference game. His third goal also helped ice the result, scoring with under five minutes left to seal the win.

The Hawks are 2-4-1 with only one non-conference game remaining before they jump into a full and challenging AMCC slate.

Hamister leads Hilbert with six goals and 14 points and is ranked second in the AMCC in goals/points/shots/shots-on-goal.  His .667 shots-on-goal percentage puts him in second place in the league based on double-digit s-o-g.
