The Hudson Valley Community College hockey team defeated Erie Community College, 7-6, in a high-scoring game on Saturday, Dec. 5. The contest had three ties and three lead changes throughout.

Hudson Valley found themselves down 2-0 in the first period when David Gordon (St. Mary's, Lynnfield, MA) got the Viking's on the scoreboard. Brendan Costin (Lynnfield, Lynnfield, MA) tied the game up in the second. After giving up another two goals to Erie, a string of goals from Angelo Rosena (Nottingham, Hamilton, NJ), Anthony Girard (Okanason Hockey Academy, San Diego, CA) and Tim Zimmerman (Kings Park, Kings Park) gave the Vikings a 5-3 lead. Hudson Valley surrendered its two goal lead as they gave up two more scores to Erie to knot the game at 5-5. But, back-to-back goals from Andrew Dahlen (Lake Brantley, Littleton, CO) and Costin gave the Vikings all they would need for the 7-6 victory.

The Vikings will host Broome Community College on Wednesday, Dec. 9 at 7 p.m.
