UB men's soccer team tops Colgate to remain undefeated

The undefeated season remains intact for the University at Buffalo men's soccer team.

With a 2-1 win at Colgate Friday night, the Bulls improved to 8-0-0.

Colgate took a 1-0 lead in the first half, but UB tied the game in the 76th minute when Lee Catchpole scored on a penalty kick. Andrae Clarke scored the game-winner in the 86th minute when the Raiders' goalkeeper came out of the net and misplayed the ball.

Dan Bell recorded six saves in the win.

The Bulls were ranked third in the New York region in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll. Colgate was ranked sixth.

Meanwhile, St. Francis (Pa.) scored two goals 35 seconds apart in the second half to earn a 2-0 win over Canisius. Matt Houghton made five saves for the Griffs (0-4-2).
WOMEN'S SOCCER: The five-game winning streak and six-game unbeaten streak came to an end -- in double overtime -- for Niagara in a 2-1 loss to Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference rival Loyola.
"It was a hard-fought game today," Niagara coach Peter Veltri said. "I think that we proved to ourselves that we could play with them if we meet up down the road. We didn't really have our 'A' game and didn't play as well as we could. But we made some adjustments. We had to play smart defensively. We can take a lot of positives out of this."

Stephanie Conley gave Niagara (6-2-1, 1-1-0 MAAC) a 1-0 lead in the 66th minute but Loyola would tie the game on a penalty kick late in the game, then score in the second overtime period.

Loyola, which has won either the MAAC regular season or tournament titles in each of the past six seasons, is 15-0 all-time against Niagara.
Elsewhere, Amanda Janosky scored two goals to lead Canisius (2-6-0, 1-1-0 MAAC) to a 3-1 victory over Rider. The win is the Griffs' second in a row and the first time since 2002 that they have earned back-to-back wins. . . . Buffalo (2-5-1, 0-1 Mid-American Conference) held an 8-7 advantage in shots and a 7-5 advantage in corner kicks, but dropped a 2-0 decision to Miami (Ohio).

VOLLEYBALL: Mary Boller (Clarence) had 31 kills for Canisius (5-7) as the Griffs split a pair of matches at the Sheraton/Penn Invitational. Canisius defeated St. Francis (N.Y.) in three games and lost to host Penn in four. Boller moved into seventh all the school's career kills list. Lauren Lackovich had 69 assists in the two matches and moved past the 1,500-assist mark in her career, making her just the fifth player in school history to reach that milestone. . . . Stephanie Hopkins and Michelle LeSouder each had 11 kills for Niagara (6-5) in a four-game win over St. Francis (Pa.) at the Red Flash Invitational. . . . Nikki Morzenti recorded her fifth straight double-double with 13 kills and 13 digs, but Buffalo (7-6, 0-1 MAC) dropped its MAC opener at Kent State in four games. . . . Medaille went 1-2 at the Pepsi Bash at the Beach in West Palm Beach, Fla. The Mavs (3-11) were led by Kim Braunscheidel (Kenmore West), who had 47 digs, while Lauren Smith (Kenmore East) had 39 kills.

CROSS COUNTRY: Hilbert's Jerome Holloway (Seneca) finished the 5K course in 20:14 for second place as the Hawks edged Pitt-Bradford, 28-29. On the women's side, Pitt-Bradford won the tri-meet with D'Youville placing second and Hilbert third. Susan Devlin (Frontier) led the Hawks, finishing the course in 23:42.

WRESTLING: Seniors Kyle Cerminara (Lewiston-Porter), Garrett Hicks (Chautauqua), Harold Sherrell and junior Mark Budd were named the University at Buffalo's team captains, head coach Jim Beichner announced.

Cerminara (197 pounds) will serve as captain for the second time in his career, serving in 2003-04 before redshirting in 2004-05. Cerminara is two wins shy of becoming just the third UB wrestler to reach 100 wins in his career. He is 16 wins away from breaking Gary Cooper's (1998-03) mark of 113 career wins.

FOR THE RECORD: University at Buffalo goalkeeper Dan Bell was honored as the Mid-American Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Week. A political science major, Bell has maintained a 3.50 GPA. . . .
