BUFFALO, N.Y.- Western Michigan men's soccer suffered a 2-0 Mid-American Conference loss at Buffalo Friday night.
The Bulls scored a goal in each period to improve to 4-10-1, 2-3 MAC, while the Broncos fell to 10-5-2, 2-2-1 MAC with the defeat.
Maksym Kowal scored UB's first goal in the 31st minute, coming off a through ball from 70 yards out to the high defensive line.
Lukas Felder netted the insurance goal in the 77th minute, scoring a header at the far post off Richard Craven's corner kick.
The Broncos led in shots, 22-8 and 12-3 in corner kicks. Jonathan Viscosi made six saves in goal for Buffalo, while Sean Lewis made five stops for Western Michigan.
Nine cards were issued in the game, including three red cards to the Western Michigan side. A total of 29 fouls were whistled.
"I have never witnessed anything quite like this in my soccer life," said WMU head coach Stu Riddle. "Its the second time in MAC play we have completely dominated the game and ended up losing. The players gave everything and can't be faulted. They were undone by other circumstances tonight."
Western Michigan hosts Northern Illinois Oct. 30 and concludes the regular season at Akron Nov. 3.
