The wind was taken out of the sails of the Hudson Valley Community College ice hockey team this past weekend at the Conway Ice arena in Troy. T

he Vikings managed to steal only one of four league points up for grabs this weekend vs. Erie Community College. Friday night, the Erie Kats outworked the Vikings in every aspect of the game leading to a 4 – 0 shutout. In the losing effort, Kevin Bowdidge (Stoneham HS/ Stoneham, MA) stopped 31 of the 35 shots he faced.

Saturday, the Vikings came out strong, but only managed a 2-2 overtime tie after a late third period goal by Paul Chamberlain (Niskayuna HS, Niskayuna). Kevin Bowdidge (Stoneham HS/ Stoneham, MA) was sharp in net yet again stopping 19 of 21 shots.

The Vikings travel to Colonie this Saturday to take on the Siena Saints in a non-league contest. The puck is set to be dropped at 8:15pm.
