TROY, N.Y. - Sept. 29 - A blocked extra-kick attempt allowed the Erie Community College football team to pick up its second win of the season, a 7-6 win over Hudson Valley CC in Northeast Football Conference play at Veterans Memorial Stadium.

ECC got on the board on its second possession when freshman quarterback Will Robinson (Weequahic, N.J./Weequahic) threw a 44-yard touchdown pass to Marcus Carter (New Castle, Pa./New Castle) for a 7-0 lead. Sophomore linebacker Kyril Threats (Buffalo, N.Y./Canisius) set up the scoring drive with an interception.

The teams traded possessions until Hudson Valley CC scored on a 34-yard pass from Jalen Holmes to Dee Wilkins with 45 seconds left in the half. ECC's Jacob Kutz (Westlake, Ohio/Westlake) blocked the extra-point kick attempt to keep the Kats with a 7-6 lead.

Kutz, a defensive lineman, finished the game with 10 tackles (3 solo/7 assists), including three tackles for loss and a quarterback sack. Linebacker Devin Coney (New Orleans, La./Independence) led ECC with 13 tackles (6 solo/7 assists), the third-most tackles by a Kat in a single game. Robinson led ECC with 63 yards rushing.

ECC will play its home finale at Jim Ball Stadium Oct. 6 against Lackawanna College.
