Hudson Valley Community College women's basketball (5-1) extended its win streak to four straight after defeating Schenectady County Community College on the road 55-50 on Sunday afternoon.
Late in the fourth quarter, Schenectady pulled within a possession of the Vikings and Hudson Valley's Melpomeni Doutsis (Albany/Albany) responded by hitting a clutch 3-pointer to put the game out of reach of the Royals to secure the Vikings fifth win of the year and remain undefeated in the Mountain Valley Collegiate Conference (3-0). Doutsis finished with a double-double with 10 points and a team-high 15 rebounds.
Taylor Engster (Troy/Catholic Central) led the Vikings with 11 points and added six rebounds and four assists in the win. Christina Wright (Lansingburgh/Lansingburgh) also secured a double-double with 10 points and 14 rebounds in 32 minutes of play.
The Vikings are off for the holiday break and will be back in action on Tuesday, Nov. 28 to face Monroe College at 6 p.m.
