After Hudson Valley was forced to punt, Fowler scampered 57 yards through the middle of the Vikings defense to give Erie a 28-14 lead at the half.

Hudson Valley received the ball first in the third quarter and drove 65 yards on 13 plays for the touchdown. Bobby Ransom, who finished the night with 79 yards and two touchdowns, ran it in from two yards out to cut Erie’s lead to 28-21.

However, on Erie’s next possession, Dyson hit Yousif Youboty with a 16 yard touchdown pass to put the Kats up 35-21.

Quarterback Shamar Carr rushed for 94 yards and threw for 82 yards to lead Hudson Valley.
