Tyler Loudon passed for 215 yards and two touchdowns to lead the Morrisville State College football team to a 14-10 win over Hudson Valley Community College on Saturday in Morrisville.

Hudson Valley falls to 3-3 and 2-2 in the Northeast Football Conference. The Vikings will travel to Alfred State College on Saturday, October 16. Morrisville improves its record to 4-2 and 3-2 in the conference.

The Mustangs took a 14-3 lead into the locker room at halftime. Loudon hit Parrish Miller with a quick pass, and Miller slipped a Hudson Valley defender and ran 52 yards to give Morrisville a 7-0 lead halfway through the first quarter.

Loudon then hit Matt St. Clair with an 18-yard touchdown pass with 2:10 remaining in the first half to make it 14-0.

Hudson Valley cut its deficit to 14-10, five minutes into the third quarter, when freshman running back Dane Samuels (Clarkstown/Clarkstown High School) found the end zone from one yard out.

On its next possession, Hudson Valley drove to the Morrisville 26 yard line, but was stopped with one of three interceptions by the Mustangs on the day. On that drive, Hudson Valley had a touchdown called back for offensive pass interference.

Calvin Hall carried the ball 31 times for 109 yards to lead the Morrisville rushing attack.

Samuels had a 104 yards rushing on 19 carries for the Vikings.

Hudson Valley sophomore defensive end Jonal St.-Dic (Elizabeth, NJ/Elizabeth High School) finished with three sacks on the day. He has 16 career sacks, which ties former Hudson Valley standout Jim Brown for the college's career sack record.
