LAST TIME OUT
The Bonnies were scoreless at halftime with Buffalo last Saturday night at the Marra Athletics Fields Complex, but a big second half from the Bulls put the game away in favor of the visitors, 6-0.

A-10 PLAY BEGINS
St. Bonaventure is the only Atlantic 10 team not to play a conference match yet as the rest of the A-10 got conference competition underway last Saturday. The Bonnies start A-10 action with a run of home games after Wednesday – after the trip to Richmond, SBU returns home for three straight conference contests – vs. La Salle (Saturday), Davidson (Oct. 14) and UMass (Oct. 17).
