Bulls Drop Game Two of Niagara Fall Classic
NIAGARA, NY - The Bulls offense peppered the Robert Morris goalkeeper with seven shots but only came away with a single score to drop its second game of the weekend, a 3-1 loss to the Colonials. Freshman Megan Abman was the only Bull to find the back of the net.
The team took 11 shots total for the game, with all seven of the shots on goal coming from different players. Two RMU goals in the first ten minutes put Buffalo on its heels, and the offense managed to respond with a goal from Abman in the 32nd minute, her second of the season.
Senior Lindsey Bailey crossed the ball in from the right side and the Denver native finished it off with a flick to the far post to bring the Bulls within one, 2-1. That score remained until late in the second half, when a third Robert Morris goal came off a rebound to put the game out of reach.
Bailey and freshman Lauren Coviello were named to the All-Tournament team for their efforts in the two games.
The loss puts Buffalo at 1-5 for the season, with its next match coming up Friday at the Big Four Tournament, hosted by St. Bonaventure. The Bulls will face local rivals Canisius and Niagara on Friday and Sunday, respectively.
