The Vikings were led offensively by Mitchell Dame (Niskayuna/Niskayuna) as he scored a team-high 17-points with sophomore guard Dave Reo (North Greenbush/Catholic Central) adding 16 points as the Vikings couldn't overcome the late game deficit to Cayuga.

Dame scored the majority of his points in the second half as he dropped 12 points and the Vikings scored 44 second half points as they fought to reduce Cayuga's lead to no avail as the Vikings defense allowed Cayuga to score 57 second half points.
