Buff State’s Men’s Soccer Playoff Hopes Dashed

  • Posted on October 24, 2009 at 11:59 pm

Senior Steve Fox (Oswego/Oswego) netted his first career goal, but it was not enough as Buffalo State (7-9-1/3-5-1) fell 2-1 at Brockport (9-4-2/7-2), officially eliminating the Bengals from SUNYAC playoff contention.

After the Golden Eagles took a 1-0 lead in the 26th minute, Fox evened the score in the 36th minute with a pair of assists from Tom Fusillo (Whitesboro/Oriskany) and Steve Orfanos (East Meadow/East Meadow). Brockport netted the lone goal of the second half in the 53rd minute and hung on for the victory, outshooting the Bengals 16-10 for the game. Brian Dudek (Niskayuna/Cheshire Academy) made three saves in the loss.

Buffalo State will close its season on Wednesday against Daemen at Amherst High School at 4 p.m.

Local College Saturday Sports Wrap

The Erie Community College women’s volleyball team dropped a four-game match Saturday afternoon in the Western New York Conference semi-finals to host Niagara County Community College.

The conference tournament seeding had to be re-seeded late Friday when it was determined that second-seeded Jamestown Community College had used an ineligible player in 14 matches earlier this season. The resulting forfeits moved Erie up from the third seed to the second seed and gave them a bye into the semi-finals.

Erie opened their tournament with 7-0 run to lead game one against the Trailblazers. They were unable to hold their lead and Niagara eventually pulled even at 17-17. The Lady Kats then pulled back ahead 21-17 before seeing Niagara tie the game back up at 21-21.

Paetsch to make season debut for Sabres tonight

  • Posted on October 24, 2009 at 5:14 pm

According to John Vogl of the Buffalo News, Buffalo Sabres defensemen Toni Lydman (groin) was too sore to make it through the morning skate, and Nathan Paetsch will get his first start of the season tonight.  The Sabres are in Tampa Bay to take on the Lightning.

Paetsch has been a healthy scratch for all 7 Sabres games this season.  Last year, he appeared in 23 games, scoring twice and adding four assists.

The Sabres are off to a 5-1-1 start and are perfect on the road.  The teams split last season’s series, 2-2 and Buffalo has won 7 of the last 10 meetings between the clubs.

Ryan Miller is expected to get the start in net again tonight for Buffalo.

Pirates still searching for first road win

  • Posted on October 24, 2009 at 12:33 pm

Portland PiratesThe Norfolk Admirals seemed like the right opponent for the Portland Pirates to get their first road win of the season, but Brandon Bochenski and the Admirals had other plans, as they defeated the Pirates, 4-2, in front 3,033 on Friday night.

The loss left the Pirates still looking for their first road win of the season, falling to 0-6-0 on the road this season.

Norfolk have had their own troubles this season with a 2-4-0 record coming into the game tonight and a power play that’s ranked last in the AHL at 4.3 percent (1-for-23).

The Unemployed Chef: Big-Ass Turkery Burger

  • Posted on October 24, 2009 at 8:05 am

First and foremost, I’d like to apologize for this post’s delay. A squirrel or something ate my internet cable, and its been down since Friday. I hope that squirrel at least wrote up a recipe for that shit. The perfect tailgate meal: Electrical cords. With a side of acorns. Sounds delicious! Bastards.

If anything, this no-internet delay has forced me to humble myself. Yes, I am 100% dedicated to you guys as the official BSD Tailgate Blogger…but I am from NYC. Which makes me a Jets fan. Which makes this post an entire conflict of interest.

When I first started drafting this post, it was extremely difficult to keep my shit-talking to a minimum. Then Sunday happened. Ouch. After the Jets’s losses in New Orleans and Miami (that was a close one, though), I really thought we had this one in the bag. I guess you guys can thank Sanchez for bringing you up to 2-4. And I’ll leave it at that.

All I can say is that it’s ON for 12/03. But I still feel like an ass.

Which leads me to this week’s recipe… (Scroll down to witness the ass reference)

Requiem for a Talley

  • Posted on October 24, 2009 at 8:04 am

When it came to consistency, toughness and leadership, few if any Bills did it  better than Darryl Talley.  At Buffalo Sports Daily, we’ve made it our mission to spread the word to fans and Hall of Fame voters that the team’s all-time leading tackler is deserving of Hall of Fame consideration.

While Talley is an underdog to get enshrined, it’s ridiculous to not at least include him in serious conversation.  He never missed a game in his 12 seasons with the Bills, and to a man; Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith, Jim Kelly and all the former greats have said it— Talley was the heart and soul of those dominant AFC Championship teams.

Check out this video created by our resident videographer Jerry Noworyta.  For anyone who remembers this era, it’s sure to send chills down your spine.  Do you think the current edition of the Bills could use a little of this?

Nicholson featured by Slam Magazine Online

- “I had a guy when I was an assistant at Xavier, David West. That’s how we look at Andrew — St. Bonaventure’s David West.”

Those are choice words that Coach Mark Schmidt uses to describe the Bonnies post Andrew Nicholson. The sophomore has definitely come a long way from being a recruiting afterthought.

After an ankle injury during a key recruiting period had kept him out of the some of the major summer tournaments before his senior year of high school, he flew under the radar for many schools. St. Bonaventure assistant coach Jeff Massey happened to see Nicholson at an open gym at his high school Father Goetz that fall and informed Coach Schmidt of his find. Not long after seeing him, Schmidt new that he had found a diamond in the rough.
