BUFFALO STATE ATHLETICS


BUFFALO -- Mac Wood (Simcoe, ON/SCS) scored twice as No. 14 Buffalo State shook off some rust from a nearly one-month layoff in a 5-3 non-conference victory over visiting Neumann tonight at the Ice Arena.
 
THE BASICS
FINAL SCORE: Buffalo State – 5, Neumann - 3
LOCATION: Ice Arena – Buffalo, N.Y.
RECORDS: Buffalo State (10-3-1), Neumann (4-8-1)
 
HOW IT HAPPENED

  • Zach Remers (Clarence, NY/Canisius) and Reid Bibb(Gaithersburg, MD/Gaithersburg) tallied a goal and two assists apiece for Buffalo State.

  • Playing its first game since Dec. 9, Buffalo State fell behind 1-0 just 44 seconds into the contest.

  • Wood's second of the game and ninth over the season on the power play pushed Buffalo State ahead 3-1 before the first intermission.
  • Neumann netted a pair of goals in the second frame to pull even, including a shorthanded tally, and limited the Bengals to just five shots on goal.
  • Buffalo State dominated the third period, outshooting the Knights, 14-5, and Bibb's "seeing-eye" shot from the point put the Bengals back in front just over a minute into the stanza.
