Fri. Sept. 24th
vs. Duquesne University
Sat. Sept. 25th
vs. Canisius College (ECHL)

In the season opener UB spotted Duquesne three first period goals in what Coach Valvo would describe as a "game that was not well played by either team". UB definitely playd worse in the first period giving up a hat trick to Dukes forward Brock Heinauer before the first 20 minutes had expired.

Down by three after one UB would come roaring back in the second period.

Scott Mack started the UB comeback early in the second period with an assist from Daniel Vyverberg. The Bulls the scored two quick short handed goals (Gregory Reed and Daniel Wendt) to tie the game. From that point on the teams traded leads or ties seven times before Matt Ganci sealed the game with four minutes left in the third.

The Bulls would have no such shenanigans from Canisus. While both Bulls and Griffs started slow out of the gate but UB would would never trail as they properly introduced themselves to the newest member of the ECHL with a shower of goals.

Matt Ganci got things going quickly with a goal just over a minute into the game. It would remain 1-0 Buffalo for over 30 minutes until the Griff's John Slater tied the game at 7:28 of the second. The Bulls and Griffs traded several quick goals until, at 3:45 Scott Mack would put the bulls ahead for good. Macks goal was the first of three UB goals in 38 second, sending UB into the third period ahead 5-2

 

UB Would pull away on two goals with four goals in the third. Two by Mark Zarbo and one each by Timothy Root and Chris Kendall.

Three Stars from this weekend:

3 -Mark Zarbo: 2 Goals (1 SH), 2 Assist

2 - Scott Mack: 3 Goals, 1 Assist

1 - Matt Ganci: 3 Goals, 1 Assist. Game winning Goal against Duquesne
