The Hudson Valley Community College men's basketball team (2-2) lost to North Country Community College (1-3) 86-81 on Thursday evening.

The Vikings trailed by eight in the first, but three consecutive three-pointers from Conor Maisch (Coleman Catholic/Kingston) helped spark an 11-0 run. Hudson Valley went into the half tied with North Country 38-38 behind Jeremy Taylor's (Catskill/Catskill) and Maisch's 14 first-half point efforts. The Vikings pulled within one point with under a minute left in the game after Matt Walker (Benjamin Banneker/Brooklyn) converted on a three-point play, but North Country sealed the game with a dunk in the final seconds.

Jeremy Taylor led the Vikings with 20 points and Conor Maisch added 19 points and eight rebounds in the loss.

The Vikings host Finger Lakes Community College this Sunday at 3 p.m.
