NU: Greco Kicks Women’s Soccer Into Finals, 2-1

  • Posted on November 1, 2009 at 7:34 pm

Senior Chiara Greco (Hamilton, Ont.) netted her second goal of the MAAC Tournament in the ninth minute of overtime, capping a furious comeback that helped No. 6 Niagara (10-9-1) to a 2-1 decision over No. 7 Marist (8-10-2) in the MAAC semifinals on Sunday afternoon at the Walt Disney Wide World of Sports Complex.

Niagara trailed for most of the game until the 87th minute, when Greco sent a timely pass over to fellow senior Michelle Emery (Colorado Springs, Colo.) for the game-tying goal, sending the game into an extra session. Niagara notched the game-winning goal in the 99th minute, when senior Brittany Benthin (Medina, N.Y.) used a great individual effort to bypass two Marist defenders and pass the ball to Greco who kicked Niagara into the MAAC finals.

Bills Exposed As Pretender Heading Into Bye

  • Posted on November 1, 2009 at 5:32 pm

Assessing the Buffalo Bills offensively is as simple as watching a good scary movie.  It’s so frightening to see, you prefer to keep your eyes closed.

The Buffalo Bills only mustered 150 yards of offense and  held the ball for  just 19 of the game’s first 56 minutes.  Predictably in the second half, the Houston Texans took advantage of an exhausted, injury depleted Bills’ defense.

Ryan Moats ran for 136 yards and scored three second half touchdowns, and the Texans easily handled the Bills, 31-10.

Buffalo lead at halftime, 10-6 but were held scoreless in the second half and were held to 84 yards in the final 30 minutes.

Sabres Shut Out By Biron in 5-0 Loss

  • Posted on November 1, 2009 at 3:06 pm

After a nine game streak, Ryan Miller has his first regulation loss. After a rough period and a half, letting in three goals, Miller was pulled in favor of Patrick Lalime. The mid-game change seemingly had no effect however, as Lalime let in two more goals on the way to a 5-0 loss to the now 4-4-5 New York Islanders. While the Sabres (8-2-1) outshot the Islanders 38-30, New York capitalized on their shots and, with ex-Sabre Martin Biron stonewalling the opposition, ended Buffalo’s perfect road record.

While the Sabres seemed to put a lot of pressure on Biron, they were short on good chances. The Islanders controlled the puck in much of the second, and enough of the third to keep the Sabres out of the net, and off the score board.

Kats football shuts out Milford Academy

  • Posted on November 1, 2009 at 7:30 am

The Erie Community College football team played their stingiest defensive game of the season Saturday afternoon defeating Milford Academy 18-0.

In front of 250 cold fans at Jim Ball Stadium, the Kats defense held the high-flying Falcons to 156 total yards and only 43 yards passing in cold and gusty conditions.

The Kats scored the only points of the first half when Zedric Joseph (West Palm Beach, FL/Palm Beach) scored on a six-yard run with just 44 seconds left in the first half.  The ensuing PAT snap was bad, keeping the score 6-0 at halftime.

William Paterson Blows by Football, 33-7

  • Posted on November 1, 2009 at 6:15 am

Wet weather and wind gusts in excess of 40 miles-per-hour helped ground both offensive attacks, but big plays on defense and special teams catapulted William Paterson (4-4/3-4) to a 33-7 win over host Buffalo State (1-7/1-6) in an NJAC contest Saturday at Coyer Field.

The Pioneers pulled away, scoring 26 points in the final 17:33 of the game and limited Buffalo State to just 52 yards of total offense.

Matt Marshall (Burlington, NJ/Burlington City) managed the Pioneers’ offense, going 11 for 22 for 136 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. Marcus McKinney (Paterson, NJ/JFK) led the ground attack with 22 carries for 74 yards and two scores, and Dawys German (N. Arlington, NJ/N. Arlington) had 13 carries for 64 yards and a score. Keith Sayball (Milford, CT/Foran) anchored the Paterson defense with nine tackles and two sacks.
