The Hudson Valley football team has pushed their way towards evening up a 2-2 record.

After a few blowout losses to Lackawanna (9-48) and ASA New York (11-37), the team propelled themselves to a 15-12 win over Dean College’s Bulldogs.

Despite the loss to Lackawanna, Vikings quarterback Tajmaleeak Beckett still proved to be a highlight within the team. Beckett accounted for the sole touchdown scored by the Vikings and threw for 65 yards on top of that. Beckett was joined by Brandon Nugent completing a consistent seven for 12 on 43 yards.

It looked promising from the beginning with an early safety forced by the defense, but after the first quarter the team was offensively shut down.

The ASA Avengers established themselves as a roadblock too. The team looked to tight end Fred Johnson to lead the team. He contributed 71 yards and one touchdown for the team, averaging a whopping 23.7 per carry. Unfortunately, it was not enough to propel them towards a win.

Rhythm was found for this team against the Dean Bulldogs. The defense forced two fumbles and exploited those towards a 15-12 win. They allowed the offense to subsidize from Dean’s clumsy mistakes, and launch themselves to an even 2-2 record.
