FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Tuesday, November 19, 2002
The Hudson Valley Community College (1-2) ice hockey team had its attempted comeback fall just short as the Vikings suffered a 5-4 setback to visiting North Country Community College earlier tonight in Troy.
Hudson Valley trailed 5-2 with less than six minutes remaining in the contest before Daniel Keyser (Hudson/Taconic Hills High School) scored off an assist from Mike Guilfoil (Liverpool/Liverpool High School) to cut the Vikings' deficit to two with 5:31 left. Andrew Carnevale (North Greenbush/LaSalle Institute) then scored a power play goal with 2:44 remaining to cut the North Country lead to 5-4.
However, the home team's rally stopped there as an apparent game-tying goal with 11 seconds left was waved off because of a crease violation.
Carnevale finished the game with two goals for the Viking while Paye had a goal and an assist, and Guilfoil had two assists.
Rich Jundo (Archbishop Curley High School) and Ron Hernandez (Warren High School) netted two goals apiece for North Country (2-3).
