Events Postponed and Cancelled

The UB athletic programs, in response to the tragedies of Sept. 11, did not compete in many of the contests scheduled for that week.

The UB at Army football game, scheduled for Saturday at West Point, was postponed. The two schools are working to find an alternate date later this season. Individuals owning tickets for the game should hold those tickets and await further information concerning exchanges once the makeup date is announced.

The women's soccer game vs. Mid-American Conference rival Akron, scheduled for Friday, was postponed until Tuesday, and the UB cross-country teams did not participate in the Ohio University Invitational on Saturday, which was cancelled.

The women's volleyball team did not participate in the University of Maryland-Baltimore County Tournament, nor did the men's tennis team take part at the Rochester Invitational. The women's tennis matches at Cleveland State and Youngstown State also were cancelled.

"We feel that this is the best way to resume our activities, allowing the proper time to pay homage to those injured or killed in this tragedy," said Bob Arkeilpane, director of athletics. "Like our campus community as a whole, we had student-athletes and coaches who were affected directly by the events of Sept. 11, and our thoughts and prayers have been with them as well as the victims."

Athletes of the Week

In light of the tragic events that affected the United States over the past week, UB has decided not to award a male and female "Athlete of the Week" for Sept. 10-16.



UB 1, Detroit 1

Sophomores Patrick Beckley and Mike Geller combined for UB's lone goal 58:19 into the game as the Bulls and Detroit played to a 1-1 double-overtime tie Sunday afternoon.

Detroit's Eric Scott opened the scoring with an unassisted goal at the 39:07 mark of the first half before Beckley scored his first goal of the season off a header from Geller to tie the game. The score stood, as neither team could reach the back of the net for the final 61:41.

The Bulls, who outshot the Titans 19-12, had several opportunities to end the game in the second extended period as they fired five shots that landed just wide of the net.

Brian Wozniak had another strong game in goal for the Bulls with two saves.


UB 3, Kent State 1

Sophomores Devon Russell and Nicole Olszewski scored goals 1:09 apart in the second half to propel UB to a 3-1 victory over Kent State in its first MAC match of the year on Sunday. UB improves to 2-3-0 (1-0-0 MAC) on the season.

UB's Emily Russell opened the scoring in the first half when she knocked a pass from senior Paula Sinclair past the Kent State goalkeeper. However, the Golden Flashes didn't waste time answering, as Lauren Caminati responded with a goal of her own 29 seconds later. The score remained tied until Emily's twin-sister, Devon, put the Bulls on top for good at the 64:18 mark. Olszewski, who assisted on Devon Russell's goal, then tacked on another UB goal just over a minute later to deflate the Golden Flashes' hopes.

Junior Emily Cox had a strong game in goal for the Bulls, as she recorded seven saves. UB outshot Kent State, 17-15, and held a slight edge in corner kicks (4-2).
