On Wednesday night, the women’s soccer team closed out its non-conference schedule with a 2-1 loss to Big Four rival Niagara (1-7-1).
The Bulls’ (3-2-2) streak of not allowing a goal in the last 449 minutes of play was snapped in the 27th minute of the first half, when Niagara’sBreanna Cativpovic beat senior goalkeeper Ainsley Wheldon to give her team a 1-0 lead.
The streak was the third longest in team history and the longest since 2008.
The Bulls have a 10-day layover before they begin their conference season. They host Ball State (5-2) next Friday at 7:30 p.m. at UB Stadium.
The men’s soccer team will be back on the road this weekend when it travels to Detroit (0-2-3) and Cleveland State (3-4) Friday and Sunday, respectively.
The Bulls (0-4-2) have yet to win a game under new head coach Stu Riddle and have scored two goals this season.
Buffalo still has two weeks before its conference season begins and is looking to turn things around before then. Kick off on Friday is scheduled for 1 p.m.
