Bulls Look to Build on Momentum Against Akron

  • Posted on October 16, 2009 at 3:26 pm

The Bulls are set to host MAC rival Akron on Saturday afternoon at UB Stadium in search of their second straight win.

The Bulls (2-4, 0-2 MAC) are coming off a crushing 40-3 win over Gardner-Webb. Buffalo led 33-3 at halftime and never looked back.

“That was our best overall game we’ve played in a long time,” said head coach Turner Gill. “The guys played with great intensity, the execution was excellent, I liked where our passion was and I liked the way our coaches worked with them during the week and saw it translate into the game.”

Harvard Cup Week Six Preview

“Intense Milk Harvard Cup Radio Game of the Week”

Riverside Frontiers (4-1) vs. Hutch-Tech Engineers (2-2)

Saturday, October 17 – 12:30 @ All High Stadium

Radio 1440 AM WJJL, Internet Link Live and Archived:

It’s not a stretch to think that even with almost a month left in the Harvard Cup’s regular season campaign, this game can be construed as a “must win” contest for both of these teams. The Frontiers will try to keep pace with the undefeated Burgard Bulldogs in the race for first place, but can not really afford a loss at this juncture.

Fantasy Friday: Dinner Bell Rings for Jets

  • Posted on October 16, 2009 at 10:46 am

The New York Jets’ takeoff this season was scary, as they battered Matt Schaub all day with a vicious, attacking defense.

But their flight hasn’t been as smooth lately; they have only four sacks on the season, tied for fewest in the league. They were embarrassed last week at Miami.

Well, there’s no remedy like playing the Buffalo Bills. The Bills will start UFL-level tackles on Sunday. Demetrius Bell will be a dinner bell for Rex Ryan’s crew, and on the other side is Plan D: Jamon Meredith. Those are the bodyguards for the perpetually shellshocked Trent Edwards. You might want to look away every time he drops back to pass.

NU Volleyball Drops Rival Canisius In Four

  • Posted on October 16, 2009 at 10:22 am

The Niagara volleyball team (14-6, 7-2 MAAC) extended its win streak to five matches with a four set road victory over cross-town rival Canisius (8-11, 5-4 MAAC) on Thursday night, 25-19, 23-25, 25-21, 25-16. With the win, Niagara broke the school record for conference wins in a season with seven.

“This win was important because it gave us separation from the rest of the pack at the halfway point of the season,” Niagara head coach Susan Clements said. “There’s still a lot of matches left to be played, but to pick up a road win against a rival was huge.”

Buffalo Sabres vs NY Islanders Game Night Preview

  • Posted on October 16, 2009 at 9:39 am

 The undefeated in regulation (3-0-1) Buffalo Sabres play host to the New York Islanders (0-1-3), one of the NHL’s two winless teams (Toronto) tonight at the HSBC Arena. It’s the first of back to back home games for the Sabres, who face Atlanta tomorrow.

The teams evenly split last season’s four match ups, going 1-1 in each team’s arena.

The Islanders defeated the Sabres last year 4-2 at the Arena November 22 before Buffalo returned the favor in a shoot out 4-3 on December 27. Former Sabre Ales Kotalik led the Sabres with five points in three games versus the Islanders last season. Jason Pominville, Thomas Vanek, Jochen Hecht and Clarke MacArthur each scored a pair of goals. Goaltender Patrick Lalime faced the Islanders in three of the four meetings, going 1-2 with a 2.02 goals against average.  Sean Bergenheim was the only Islander to score multiple goals against the Sabres last season, netting a pair.

Kane Chronicles: Early Season Edition

  • Posted on October 16, 2009 at 8:48 am

It’s been an exciting first couple of weeks for Patrick Kane and his Chicago Blackhawks’ teammates. Chicago has a Western Conference leading 11 points and a 5-1-1 record. Kane has been a huge factor in that success, as he leads the team in shots on goal with 26, is tied with Patrick Sharp for the team lead in assists (4), and is second to Sharp in points with 7. There’s been quite a few Kane/Hawks stories flying around the world wide web during the first half of October, here’s some of the best.
