CHATHAM -- Hudson bounced back from its first loss of the season with a 3-1 victory over Chatham in Monday's Patroon Conference volleyball match at Chatham High School.

Chatham took the first game, 25-23, but Hudson swept the next three, 25-17, 25-20 and 25-22 to improve to 6-1.

Top scorer for Hudson was Corey Topple had 32 points (20 kills, 7 service points, and 5 blocks). Charles Goodermote had 24 points (17 kills, 6 service points, and 1 block); Emmett Fairbairn had 11 points (6 kills, 4 service points, and 1 block) and Nick Bernockie had 7 points (5 kills and 2 blocks).

"I feel good about the win," Hudson coach Chuck Peters said. "We had a tough loss on Thursday (vs. Germantown)and I was hoping that we would rebound and we did pretty nicely. The kids came out and they keep hitting and keep working with one another and the communication is the biggest part for them. they did a little bit more of that tonight and hopefully that will be good for the next match. 

"I have to say that Mike Goodermote had been great in out passing game, he is a libero player. Normally if he is on, we get good passes and then our guys can just hit and we just pound and that's the best way to do it. Just more communication with the team and feeling even more confident. They are still trying to figure out who plays and how they play with each other because we have eight guys and it can be hard to run a practice. So they are still trying to figure that out."

Hudson entertains Voorheesville on Thursday at 6 p.m.
