The Hudson Valley Community College football team (0-6) lost to Louisburg College (6-1) 35-13 on Saturday afternoon.

The Vikings fell behind early, and two fourth-quarter touchdowns were not enough to rally against new conference member Louisburg. Josh Gross (Old Mill/Glen Burnie, MD) scored the Vikings first touchdown from quarterback Devon Greene (Battlefield/Gainesville, VA). Joe Dana (Saratoga Springs/ Saratoga Springs) got action at the quarterback position and threw his first career touchdown to Sharmarte Banks (Potomac/Washington DC) who caught his first collegiate touchdown. Zayd Hamilton (Woodbridge/Brooklyn) led the Vikings in rushing with 90 yards on 19 carries.

The Vikings next host Navy prep this Saturday at noon.
