Buffalo District Soccer League scores, Week 3

PREMIER DIVISION

FC Yemen 2, Roos FC 2

Quick sum: Almost a frighteningly accurate prediction in BN Soccer's Week 3 primer, which foresaw a 3-3 draw. Close enough! As expected, Mike Skrzypczyk, which I can now spell without looking back eight times, made a colossal impact, as his probing long ball found the run of striker Alex Reid for the first.

In stoppage time, Reid then picked out former Chelsea man James Knapp for the equalizer; an undermanned FC Yemen side wore down in the dying moments.

Yemen Elite 2, Rogue FC 2

Quick sum: With Evan Walsh a late scratch, Rogue FC scraped out a point against Yemen Elite behind goals from two Zacks -- Schmidt and Thomas. Maxwell Chirwa and Clint Holcomb tallied Elite's goals, the first of the year for both, while captain Mateo Escobar rung the crossbar with a penalty kick.

The fiery match was whistled early due to a few late dust-ups, which is not exactly shocking from these two sides.

Clarence 2, Buffalo United SS 1

Quick sum: Canisius College alums come through again, as Matt Sprague and Andrew Incho found the score sheet, while J.J. Hughes had an apple, which is now allegedly slang for "assist." And it's maddening.

Center back Ryan Schroen earned the club's man of the match, announced over Twitter. The club has vouched for how underrated center back Chris Cournan is, so this mention now pushes him to "rated."

Amherst Sharpshooters 2, SoHo FC 0

Quick sum: Even without stud defender Drew Braun, Sharpshooters' back four of Zack Wood, A.C. LaFlore, Graham Harris and Keith Braun was impenetrable, and keeper Adam Durst has yet to allow a goal in league play.

Amherst's goals came from both managers, Trevor Lawler and Ricky Martinez, with FC Buffalo's Regan Steele playing provider for both. SoHo is trending downward, and the BN Soccer Game of the Week was a bit of a letdown, as Sharpshooters dominated thoroughly.

Queenston FC 5, BSC International 0

Quick sum: Well, so much for our scoreless prediction. Inter looked listless against a deep Queenston squad, which benefited from the debuts of Frank Cotroneo, who scored, and Ross Suitor, who set up three of the five.

The Parliament's infusion of youth, combined with BSC Inter's frustrations going forward, contributed to the blowout. The prediction of Inter's relegation looks like it's coming true before our eyes.

BSC Raiders 3, Celtic United 0

Quick sum: Fairly routine win for Raiders, who continued to prove that their goals can come from anywhere. Kwadwo Asante and Matt Grabowski found the back of the net, and the young goalkeeper tandem of Justin Figler and Will Boerema kept another sheet clean.

Center back Chris Billoni saw a straight red late in the match for a foul as the last defender, and he'll face suspension pending appeal.

CHAMPIONSHIP DIVISION

Lakeside FC 2, Polonia 0

Quick sum: The up-and-down season for Polonia hits another snag, as a home loss to previously win-less Lakeside suggests that there are holes in the red and white. You can read Polonia defender Matt Marcinkiewicz's match report here for heaps of further info.

Lykan FC 2, Niagara FC 0

Quick sum: Is Lykan for real? Their 3-0 start suggests so. Jason Morgan's side now has more wins in 2016 than they registered total over the last three seasons. Niagara FC, which was eliminated from the Tehel Cup by second-division team Buffalo Blizzard on Thursday, is unexpectedly reeling, as commitment/availability has been a concern for a bright young side.

East Aurora FC 3, Buffalo Celtic 0

Quick sum: While there's some unrest in the Buffalo Celtic camp, East Aurora continues to prove that the season-opening slip-up was an illusion. Jimmy Kane found the net for the first time in 2016, while James Ritchie and Ryan Keller also scored.

Check out video of their Barcelona-esque penalty kick attempt, which was impressively foiled by BC's keeper.

Southtowns FPFC 2, OP Alliance 1

Quick sum: Brutal start for Orchard Park continues, as a loss to feisty Southtowns FPFC, formerly Lakeshore, drops them to 0-3. The offense should see a boost whenever Ryan McMaster and the Saelis return from school, but the hole might be too deep at that point.

The winning side might lead championship in "most players you wouldn't want to fight who would very willingly fight you."

Buffalo Bantu 2, Rangers 2

Quick sum: Bantu has proven a dominant side for the first 85 minutes of matches -- it's the last five that are problematic. Medaille winger Jackson Hamilton scored a late leveler for Rangers, who were bit hard by the injury bug in this match. Mohamed Musse continues to produce for Bantu, scoring his third in as many games.

Wolfpack 7, Celtic Hoops 1

Quick sum: The reorganization of Hoops and Celtic United hasn't worked out well for either side, so far, from both an attendance and a result standpoint. Wolfpack seemingly had an ax to grind -- and a point to prove -- after some social media barbs last season.
