Women’s Soccer Wraps Up Spring Season

Women’s Soccer Wraps Up Spring Season

By Carley Zoccali

BUFFALO, NY – The University at Buffalo women's soccer team concluded a successful seven-match spring season last week against a slate that included Big 4 rivals St. Bonaventure and Canisius, Mercyhurst, Binghamton and others.

With the implementation of a new formation, UB found great success in the attacking side of the game as the Bulls scored 20 goals while conceding just two goals. Several players also found themselves in new positions and roles which allowed the coaching staff to evaluate the group as a whole and find new combinations that led to success on the field.

"A lot of players took advantage of this spring," said head coach Shawn Burke. "I think this could be one of the deeper teams we've had in a while and the competition for positions will be strong this fall."

After a strong spring, the Bulls will now head into the summer with some momentum as the team will return three of the top four scorers to a team that won 11 matches a season ago. UB will also be welcoming nine freshman and Ohio State transfer Riley Bowers to the squad for the fall campaign.
