Dermot McGrane is now the all-time leader in coaching victories in Niagara men's soccer history following the Purple Eagles' 1-0 win over William & Mary on Sunday at the Stihl Classic in Norfolk, Va. Levi Tesch scored to help McGrane earn his 48th career win. He moved ahead of Jean Tassy, who amassed a 47-40-7 mark from 1974-81.

"It's a nice honor to have," McGrane said. "But the most important thing is we got a win."

The University at Buffalo lost in the final of the Marquette Invitational to DePaul, 5-1, as the Blue Demons scored four times in the final 16 minutes to break a 1-1 tie. UB is now 2-2, all of its decisions against Big East foes.

Coach Dan Krzyzanowicz earned his 100th win during Medaille's 6-0 win over Alvernia on Saturday.

Niagara's Joe Tonnos had an ace up his sleeve during Army's Mulekicker Fall Classic in West Point. The Purple Eagles' captain aced his final hole of the tournament, a 194-yard par 3, with a 5-iron.

"It was very surprising," said Tonnos, who fired a 10-over-par 80 to finish the two-day tournament with a 159. "It was an uphill hole and I just hit it pure. I couldn't see if it went in or not, but everyone around the green started cheering right away, so I had an idea."

NU finished eighth out of 12 teams in the event won by Army. Trevor Kenney shot a second-round 78 to finish with a 157 for the Purple Eagles.
