Late Goal Lifts Bulls Past Bison
Hot in Openers
UBís victory over Bucknell on Friday night gave the Bulls their fourth season-opening win in the past five seasons. The only blemish to the streak was last seasonís opening loss to Fairfield in the first round of the St. Johnís Tournament. The Bulls have also won five of six of their past home openers with the lone loss in the span coming against Detroit, 1-0, in 2006. Detroit is UBís second-round opponent in the upcoming Bulls Classic.
The Bulls used a veteran lineup in Friday nightís contest with all 11 starters holdovers from last seasonís squad. The Bulls did use a pair of freshmen newcomers off the bench as Rich Wilson (Ocho Rios, St. Ann, Jamaica/Munro College) and Lucas Bassan (Carrollton, TX/Hebron) got their first tastes of collegiate action. Wilson had two of UBís 16 shots taken against the Bison.
