Bulls Split Their Second Home Weekend

After a successful sweep over a pair of local schools, the Bulls had their eyes locked on the Duquesne Dukes. Last year, the Bulls took both games from Duquesne. This year would not be the same, as the Bulls could only take one win away from the Dukes. Both games were held at the Northtowns Ice Center in Amherst, NY.

Buffalo 6 Duquesne 0

On Friday night the Bulls got off an running early with a quick goal in the first from Matt Ganci who also scored later in the period. Dimitrios Koutsomitis also added a pair of goals later in the game, and accompanied by a goal by Ben Lantz, his first of the season, put the Bulls in control. Chris Covel rounded off the scoring with his goal late in the third to give the game a final score of 6-0. Matt Bradley recorded the shutout as the Bulls moved to 3-0 on the year.

Duquesne 4 Buffalo 2

Saturday night was a horse of a different color, as the Bulls didn't get off to the quick start they had become accustomed to. The Dukes got the first goal of the game, which would be the first time the Bulls have been down all season. The lead got up to 2 before Matt Ganci opened the scoring for the Bulls. Buffalo got a little more help off the stick of Ben Lantz in the 2nd to get the game all knotted up. Unfortunately for UB, a Duquesne shot from the point tipped off a player in front snuck through in the 3rd to give Duquesne a 3-2 lead, and they didn't look back. The Dukes would add on one more on a breakaway and hold on 4-2.

The Bulls (3-1) look to pick up a pair of wins this weekend. They start their weekend in Rochester against the University of Rochester. The Bulls swept U of R last season in their two games. The Bulls will go out to Cortland the following night, where the Bulls beat Cortland last year on their Senior night. This will be the first NECHL game for the Bulls as they look to capture a league championship. Game times will be 8:00 on friday, and 7:00 on Saturday for you fans that are making the trek.
