Jayhawks Go 0-1-1 On Weekend Vs. Herkimer, Hudson Valley CC
Jamestown Community College halted Hudson Valley CC’s four-game winning streak, playing the Vikings to a 0-0 tie through double-overtime Sunday afternoon at the Physical Education Complex.
The Jayhawks put 14 shots on the Hudson Valley CC (4-1-1, 3-1-1) net and also hit three goalposts, but were turned aside all day by goalkeeper Nate Langlois.
“We were all over them,” Jamestown CC head coach Pat Anderson said. “We dominated possession in their end of the field a lot.”
Jakob Moore made seven saves for the Jayhawks.
“We had great shots,” Anderson said. “(Langlois) knocked away a lot of things that probably should’ve been goals.”
On Saturday, Jamestown CC played Herkimer College tough for much of the game before falling 5-1.
Herkimer College entered the game as the No. 2 team in the country in the latest NJCAA Division III poll.
The Generals got on the scoreboard first in the eighth minute when Shemar Blair found the back of the net.
In the 22nd minute, Tyler West scored from Harry Ward for the Jayhawks, but Herkimer College took the lead three minutes later when Jaahdel Cyril scored on a header.
In the 75th minute, Moore stopped a Generals penalty kick, but Ryheim Hinds put home the rebound to give Herkimer College a 3-1 lead.
“I felt pretty good all the way through the game,” Anderson said. “Even when we got the penalty and Jakob saved it, I felt good.”
The Generals (7-0-0, 6-0-0) put the game away in the next nine minutes as Alex Charles and Ikiel Collins-Brown both scored goals.
“We had a couple of breakdowns late. In the second half we started to possess the ball a little bit better,” Anderson said. “We were definitely in that game. Given that they are the No. 2 team in the nation, I’m not feeling bad about that at all.”
Jamestown CC (2-2-2, 2-2-1) returns to action at 4 p.m. Wednesday at home against Finger Lakes CC.
