Saxon women's soccer team blanks Hilbert

HAMBURG, NY -- The Alfred University women's soccer team shut out host Hilbert College, 2-0, Saturday afternoon.


The win was the first for the Saxons this season and the first of Aileen Ascolese's collegiate head coaching career. Ascolese was appointed head coach at AU prior to the 2013 season; it is her first college head coaching job.


AU (1-3) opened the scoring 6:32 into the game on an unassisted goal by sophomore Mary Hendee (Almond, NY/Alfred-Almond). Junior Nicole Lobur (Akron, NY/Akron) gave the Saxons a two-goal lead and closed out the game's scoring with another unassisted tally 13:18 into the second half.


Senior goalie Samijo Scheer (Corning, NY/Corning East) went the distance in net for the Saxons, making 10 saves to record the shutout.


AU is in action next on Saturday, Sept. 14, at 7 p.m. at home against Penn College.
