Led by Jory’s 12, Herkimer battled through four lead changes before the Vikings took the lead for good with six minutes left before intermission.

It remained there until the final four minutes of regulation, seeing the Generals cut it to six (70-64) with 3:03 left. The last three minutes belonged to the Vikings, outscoring Herkimer 8-2, on their way to a 78-66 victory.</p> <p>Up next for the women’s basketball team is Mohawk Valley Community College.

It remained in the double figures throughout the rest of the game with multiple transition dunks and three-point field goals against the Vikings.</p> <p>With the Generals connecting from all over the court, the lead ballooned to 18 (71-53) after Galay knocked down a couple free throws from a technical and Johnson hit two of his three-point field goals in the game within three possessions.
