FOR RELEASE: Immediate, Tuesday, December 7, 2004

The Hudson Valley Community College (7-3) ice hockey team cruised to a 16-0 win over Broome Community College (0-9) earlier tonight in Troy.

The 16 goal spread ties the second largest margin of victory for Hudson Valley in the program's history, matching a 17-1 win over Paul Smith's College in 2000 and a 16-0 victory over County College of Morris in 1994. The largest win in the program's history was a 26-4 victory over the University at Albany's club team in 1995.

Freshman Jeff Beecher (South Glens Falls/South Glens Falls High School) led the Hudson Valley attack with four goals and three assists. The Vikings received two goals apiece from sophomores Mike Van Baaren (Albany/LaSalle Institute), Travis Larson (Burnt Hills/Burnt Hills High School), Kenny Holvig (New City/Clarkstown South High School) and Joe Evers (Albany/LaSalle Institute), and freshman Rick Stroup (Troy/Troy High School).

Freshman goalie Carmen Guyer (Melrose/Hoosic Valley High School) stopped four shots to pick up his first career shutout.

Hudson Valley held a 70-4 shots advantage in the game.
