Men's soccer loses third straight

The men's soccer team played the first of three-straight road games on Saturday and looked for their first win in over a week. They are still searching for a victory. Buffalo (4-6-1, 1-1 Mid-American Conference) lost 2-0 to the Bowling Green Falcons (4-4-2, 1-2 MAC) to extend their winless streak to three games. The loss also marked the fifth time that the Bulls have been shut out this season. "I think that we played well at the end," said head coach John Astudillo.

Volleyball conquers Ball State for first time

With the season slowly slipping away, the volleyball team needed to make a statement. They did just that on Saturday night. For the second consecutive game at Alumni Arena, the Bulls (14-8, 2-4 Mid American Conference) found themselves entrenched in a five-set war.

Winless streak reaches double digits

It wasn't a good weekend for the women's soccer team. The Bulls (1-12-1, 0-5-1 Mid-American Conference) had two chances at home over the weekend to notch their first conference win of the season against Central Michigan (8-3-1, 5-0 MAC) and Eastern Michigan (6-5-3, 3-0-2 MAC). Both attempts came up short as the Bulls failed to score a goal in either game. On Friday night, the Bulls fell 3-0 to the Chippewas and followed that up with a 1-0 heartbreaking defeat against the Eagles. Despite the shutout loss against Central Michigan, Bulls head coach Michael Thomas had nothing but praise for the Chippewas after the game. "Central Michigan is a very good soccer team," Thomas said.

Bulls banking on momentum kick

The women's soccer team brought a six-game losing streak into last weekend's games, and after two hard fought matches, they broke the string, barely. After falling 1-0 on Friday night against Northern Illinois, (6-4-1, 2-4-1 Mid-American Conference), the Bulls (1-10-1, 0-3-1 MAC) salvaged the weekend with a 0-0 draw against Western Michigan (6-5-1, 2-1-1 MAC). Sunday's shutout by freshman goalkeeper Ainsley Wheldon was the first of her career and the first for the Bulls since October 2009.

Bulls face tough weekend competition

Last weekend, the men's soccer team faced opponents with two things in common: strength and a desire to win. The Bulls (4-5-1, 1-0 Mid-American Conference) had a chance to move their record to above .500 record this weekend, but were unable to do so.

Affordable competition

Tuition, the cost of living and activity fees have been steadily increasing for students at UB. All the while, New York State budget cuts have been adding to student concerns. In light of the difficult times, the Recreational and Intramural Services (RIS) have been doing their part to keep activities affordable for students. Strapped with a $63,000 budget, RIS has not increased their fees for intramural sign ups in the past two years.
