The Hudson Valley Community College women’s basketball team (4-18) lost to No. 7 Mohawk Valley Community College (20-7) 68-41 on Saturday afternoon.

The Vikings started strong in the opening quarter, applying full-court pressure to disrupt Mohawk Valley’s offense, but the nationally ranked Hawks proved to be too much down the stretch. Elizabeth Zehner (Stillwater/Stillwater) led the Vikings with 13 points, and Di’Asia Smith (Troy/ Troy) and Shelby Dugan (Watervliet/ Watervliet) each added 11 in the loss.

The women travel to North Country on Monday at 5 p.m.
