The Hudson Valley Community College football team (2-9) lost to Alfred State (5-4) 30-24 on Saturday afternoon.

The Vikings fell behind early, and could never make up the difference. The defense kept the game close, with Gordie Pine (New Paltz/Gardiner, NY) returning two fumble returns for touchdowns. Justin Winfree (DeMatha/Washington DC) and Taylor Modlin (Gar-Field/Woodbridge, VA) helped anchor the defense recording two sacks each. The Vikings couldn't get much going offensively, but they did get a long 62 yard touchdown pass from Shawn Bryant (Henninger/Syracuse, NY) to Rasheed Oberton (Overbrook/West Philadelphia, PA) for the team’s only offensive touchdown of the game.
