UB Hockey Splits the Weekend

The Men's hockey team faced one of their more difficult weekends when they went up against Robert Morris (#17) and IUP (#22). The Bulls managed to split the weekend in two games decided by a single goal:



After Jumping out to a 2-0 lead on goals by Craig Meany and John Fitzgerald the Bulls would surrender five goals in 14 minutes before Fitzgerald netted a second goal in the waining moments of the second period. Going into the third period down 5-3 The teams traded goals until UB Pulled to within one at 7-6 with several minutes left. With just over three minutes remaining Bryan Chiavetta of Robert Morris would put the game out of reach.

A final flurry during the last minute by Buffalo would produce one goal, and give John Fitzgerald a hat trick but would not be enough to tie the game.
