At first glance, St. Bonaventure’s women’s soccer faced long odds against its Big 4 rivals, which were important matches for pride and preparation leading into conference play. The University at Buffalo had made last year’s NCAA Tournament, Niagara lost in penalty kicks in the MAAC semifinals and Canisius had scored a ridiculous 16 goals in a recent exhibition match.…

The list of outsiders who visit Buffalo and declare the city (and its football team) on a major upswing is growing. Add a pair of middle-aged, proudly bald British men in stylish sportcoats to that list. The Men in Blazers -- soccer commentators Roger "Rog" Bennett and Michael "Davo" Davies -- visited Buffalo on Tuesday and Wednesday as part of an NFL Films/Yahoo Sports …

Hunter Walsh was zoned in. The University at Buffalo freshman had just entered a Big 4 rivalry match for the first time, eager to make an impact in the final five minutes of the first half. Before Bulls goalie Cameron Hogg’s goal kick restarted play, Walsh felt a shove in the back. Startled, he turned to see the aggressor was his older brother, Evan, a redshirt freshman…

On the heels of a successful trip to England this spring, the University at Buffalo men’s soccer team had every reason to be eager for fall. The arrival of towering 6’5 striker Scott Doney, a transfer from Marshall University, immediately made returning All-Mid-American Conference first-team selection Russell Cicerone more dangerous, and the duo helped the Bulls to an…

If you're a Big 4 soccer fan, there are reasons to be hopeful. Struggling sides Niagara and St. Bonaventure have some promising underclassmen, while the cupboard isn't example bare at the University at Buffalo and Canisius College, either. St. Bonaventure's Kieran Toland, UB's Scott Doney and Fox Slotemaker, and Canisius' Mo Kretschmer are ineligible for this list, as the…

Canisius men’s soccer head coach Dermot McGrane called it the “worst preseason in his 20 years of coaching.” Back in August, the Griffs could barely field a team -- a total of 13 players were injured at one point, including nine starters. During one preseason match, Canisius had only two substitutes available off the bench. Although the majority of the injured play…

Picking a best XI from Western New York's four NCAA Division I schools is by no means an easy task, but it's worth doing to recognize the achievements of college soccer players and to praise the players who, by examining a simple box score, would not necessarily stick out. (In this case, "best" means most valuable and not "most points" or "most clean sheets.) Let's meet t…
