The Hudson Valley Community College football team (1-1) lost to Lackawanna College (3-0) 48-9 on Saturday evening.

The Vikings got an early safety and then scored on the ensuing drive off a 3-yard pass from Tajmaleeak Beckett (Flushing/Queens) to John Elliott (Corcoran/Syracuse) to take a 9-7 lead, but the offense stalled after that. Lackawanna would go on to score 41 unanswered points en route to the 39-point win. Jaylen McIntyre (CBA Albany/Latham) led the team with 46 rushing yards on 10 attempts, and Fred Johnson (East Syracuse-Monoa/Syracuse) led all receivers with 37 yards.

The team travels to play ASA next Saturday at 7 p.m.
