The Hudson Valley Community College men’s soccer team (0-1) lost to Brookdale Community College (1-0) 2-1 in overtime in the East Coast Cup held at TC3 on Saturday afternoon.

Brookdale struck first early in the second half on a penalty kick, but Scott Joyal (Ballston Spa/Ballston Spa) answered with a penalty kick of his own right before the end of regulation. In overtime, the Jersey Blues connected on another penalty kick with 30 seconds left in the first overtime to capture the win. Patrick Knowles-Gerstenberger (Shenendehowa/Clifton Park) only allowed two penalty kick goals and recorded eight saves for the Vikings.

The men play TC3 tomorrow at 3 p.m.
