Cutrona And Jackson Named Athletes Of The Week

September 4, 2018

         

Senior forward Carissima Cutrona had another strong weekend to lead the Bulls to their first perfect 2-0 road weekend of the season as they picked up a pair of shutout victories over Cornell and Albany. The lethal scorer finished off her weekend with three goals, one assist and seven points to lead the Bulls to their third straight road victory. She also netted both game-winning goals for the Bulls as she now has potted nine career game-winners for the white and blue. On Friday night, Cutrona was able to net the opening goal of the match and she later assisted on Marcy Barberic's first goal of the season. On Sunday afternoon at Albany, Cutrona was all over the field for the Bulls as she was able to net both goals in UB's 2-0 road blanking of the Great Danes. For her career, Cutrona has now recorded 23 goals which moves her into a tie for 8th place on the Bulls all-time scoring charts.

             

Jackson threw a career-high six touchdown passes in just over two quarters of work to lead the Bulls to a 48-10 win over Delaware State. The junior signal-caller was responsible for each of Buffalo's first six touchdowns. He became the first quarterback in school history to throw five first-half touchdowns. He was pulled after his sixth touchdown pass, on UB's first drive of the third quarter, put the Bulls ahead 41-3. His line for the game was 17-of-27 for 189 yards, six touchdowns and no interceptions.
