UB Ends Season On High Note With 9-6 Win

  • Posted on November 27, 2009 at 5:23 pm

In 2008 the UB Bulls won nearly all the nail biters en route to winning their first ever MAC championship.  This year has been a different story as time and time again the Bulls managed to lose nearly every close scoring contest. In what hopefully becomes something to build on once again, the Bulls (5-7) finished the season on a two-game winning streak after knocking off Kent State on the road this afternoon, 9-6.

The game surely wasn’t pretty.  Playing without top offensive weapon Naaman Roosevelt, the Bulls failed to get in the end zone.  Fortunately for them, Kent State’s offense was equally woeful.  The difference was UB kicker A.J. Principe, who booted three field goals including the game winner from 22 yards with just 10 seconds left in the game after the Bulls methodically marched 63 yards over the last 10 plays of the game.  UB out gained Kent State, 320-159.

“A Star is Born”; The Puck drops in on his First Press Conference

  • Posted on November 27, 2009 at 4:16 pm

I knew after much time away that the next edition of “The Puck Drops Here” would need to come with a vengeance. After returning to my seat on press row following half time, two scrumptious Alumni Arena hotdogs and Diet Pepsi in hand to find my lap-top out of juice and unable to continue meaningless Facebooking, opportunity came a’ knockin’.

It was at this point that I would have no choice but to focus in on the 2nd half of a local college basketball game that, with all due respect to UB Head Coach Reggie Witherspoon’s opinion of it being just another game, became an instant “Big 4” finish for the ages. Anyone yet to hear let alone read about Canisius’ thrilling last second victory has plenty of outlets for a game recap, but only here at Buffalo Sports Daily will you get the true story of the game as it was uncovered in the basement of Alumni Arena.

After a pretty rare busy day for The Puck, I had no intentions of attending the post game press conference (Think Billy Madison’s “Chlorophyll? more like Bore-a-fill”). However as the events of the night unfolded and the thrill of victory and agony of defeat so clearly depicted on the faces of the opposing sides, it was time to introduce the sports world to its newest budding media superstar.

Live Blogging: Sabres defeat Philadelphia, 4-2

  • Posted on November 27, 2009 at 12:30 pm

Boy, the Buffalo Sabres could sure use a win.  After a blazing 8-1-1 start, the team has found the going tough.  They’re just 4-6-1 in their last 11 games and are carrying a four-game winless streak (0-3-1).

Things shouldn’t get easier this afternoon when Buffalo travels to Philadelphia to take on a surging Flyers team that‘s 13-8-1 and finally back at home after a five game road trip.

The Sabres are currently in the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference, literally.  They’re in eighth place with 26 points, putting them eight points away from leading the conference.. And just nine points  from being dead last. Today starts a stretch that will see Buffalo play 18 games over the next 33 days.

McGee, Stroud questionable for Bills

  • Posted on November 27, 2009 at 12:29 pm

Some potential good news for the injury-riddled Buffalo Bills.  After missing last week’s loss at Jacksonville, starting defensive tackle Marcus Stroud and Terrence McGee were both on the field practicing today, albeit on a limited basis, raising hope that both can play in this Sunday’s home showdown with Miami.

Fewell said after practice that Stroud had a good day and is closer to the probable side.  McGee will be a game time decision.

Demetrius Bells (knee), Ashton Youboty (ankle) and Nic Harris (personal) and John McCargo (calf) were the only non-participants at this morning’s practice.  All but Harris have been ruled out.
