    October 26, 2022

     St. Mary’s put their #1 rank on the line in a semifinal match against Christian Academy of Western New York(CAWNY). The weather was unseasonably hot and so were the Bisons, who jumped on the scoreboard early with a goal by Yaser Abdollahi.  He would eventually score a hatricks (3 goals) in the match, which ties him for the team leader in goals.  The Eagles were a worthy opponent, controlling much of the action on St. Mary’ defensive end despite the Bisons having control on the scoreboard.  It was good experience for our players to match up against a team who were frantically trying to score at all costs in a desperate attempt to prolong their season.  As you know, the NFCAA playoffs are single elimination with the winner advancing to the championship and the loser “going home”.  With the help of some clutch saves from Saul Alvira in net and some stellar defensive play from Di’Ovanny Lacen and Captain Magdi Mohamed, we were able to prevent CAWNY from capitalizing and prevailed 4-0. The Bisons punched themselves a ticket into the finals next weekend (November 5th, 2022) for a chance to become the champions of the NFCAA.  Please wish the team congrats as they continue to pursue the coveted prize.

    October 19, 2022

    Yesterday’s matchup was the regular season finale for the NFCAA, which saw the undefeated #1 seed Chesterton Academy take on the #2 seed St. Mary’s School for the Deaf.  The Bisons' only league loss earlier this season was at the hands of Chesterton.  Needless to say, there was a lot on the line regarding playoff implications as well as a shot at redemption for the Bisons as well.  Both teams stood toe to toe exchanging 1st half goals.  With the Bisons entering halftime down 2-1, the coaching staff chose not to make any adjustments and told our players to “stay the course” with our original game plan.  In the 2nd half of the match, we were able to tie the game off a great shot outside the 18yd box from Brady Bartell.  As the game wore on, both teams had their opportunities to go ahead.  With the help of strong play from Ifeanyi Nwabueze who was able to contain Chesteron’s top offensive threat, and some clutch saves from Michael Norris in goal, who was forced into action in the absence of our starting keeper, we were able to hold off our opponent until Yaser Abdollahi was able to get another strike past Chesterton’s goalie to take the lead back.  With 15 minutes remaining, neither team would back down from the other. The Bisons gave themselves a little breathing room by tacking on another goal that gave us a 4-2 cushion, but Chesterton struck back with

    2 minutes remaining to claw within 1 point. After some desperate attempts from the Knights and time running out, it became too little too late and the Bisons secured not only the win but the #1 overall seed heading into next week's playoffs.   Please wish the boys congrats and good luck moving forward.

    The Bisons were able to fix their offensive problems from our first match today and piled on 4 goals, including a hat trick from Brady Bartell to earn a 4-0 win and a 3rd place finish in this year's ESDAA soccer tournament. Saul Alvira was also able to grab his 7th shutout of the season with the help of steady defense from Magdi Mohamed & Di'Ovanny Lacen.

    Wish the boys congrats on representing our school well!

    October 15, 2022- game 2

    The Bisons were upset by the RSD Wildcats in a close match ending in a 2-1 loss. Our team took an early lead off the foot of Magdi Mohamed. Unfortunately, our offense struggled to generate any type of attack and for the remainder of the contest we spent the entire time fending off shots from Rochester. The Bisons have a short time to regroup because we played in the 3rd place consolation game today as well. Hope we'll be able to comeback strong.

    Thanks,

    Coach Booke & Coach LeRoy

    After a two-year hiatus from the ESDAA soccer tournament, the Bisons were back and ready to represent Buffalo against 7 other D2 schools in a 2-day competition hosted by Rochester School for the Deaf. Our first match of the weekend was against the Trojans from Rome, NY. The 1st half of the match was closely contested as both teams exchanged goals and tested the other squads' defense. In the 2nd half, the Bisons began to impose their will by adding on a few goals from Yasir Abdollahi and Brady Bartell. The Bisons were able to come away with the win 4-1. We advance into the winners bracket where we will play against the Wildcats from RSD in an early morning 8:30am affair. Please continue to root and support your Bisons!

    In our final test before our focus turns to the ESDAA tournament this weekend, the Bisons wrapped up their home & away series against Central Baptist. Not too much changed from the match that we had last week against the Lions. Both our offense & defense were firing on all cylinders. We controlled the tempo of the game as well as the scoreboard. Everyone had the opportunity to play, including Anthony LaBalle, Jakob Fox, and our latest addition to the team, Ramah Sif Aldeen. The Bisons were victorious by the score of 5-0.

    October 3, 2022

    After a few days' rest, the Bisons were back on the field, taking on Christian Academy of Western New York(CAWNY) in the 2nd match of our home & away series against the Eagles.  The Bisons were missing two of our mid-fielders as a result of injury and illness, so other players were given the opportunity to demonstrate what they could do.  Shannan Green and Jon Maldonado-Casanova earned significant playing time and showed a great deal of hustle and determination.  Offensive contributions in regards to the scoreboard were from Yaser Abdollahi and Michael Norris.  The Bisons were once again supported by a stout defensive as Saul Alvira earned his 4th shoutout of the season in a 3-0 victory.  The Bisons look to continue their solid start to the season today against NFCAA opponent Central Baptist on our field at 4pm.  Please wish us congrats and good luck.

    September 29, 2022

    Yesterday afternoon, despite having previously played two games back to back this week and having suffered a rash of impactful injuries, the Bisons put their best foot forward in an effort to remain undefeated against Chesterton Academy.  Our defense faced it's biggest test so far this season.  It was the first time we had been scored on and it was good to see how the Bisons would face adversity moving forward throughout the match. It was a great contest that saw both teams exchanging leads back and forth.  Mid-fielders Yaser Abdollahi and Brady Bartell continued their offensive contributions, totaling a combined 3 goals, and Saul Alvira did everything in his power to give us a competitive chance, but in the end it was just enough.  The Bisons suffered their first loss of the season by the score of 4-3.  Moving forward, the team has a much needed break until next week when we kick off against CAWNY for the second time this season on Tuesday at home.  Please wish the boys congrats on a hard fought game.

    Thanks,

    Coach Booke & Coach LeRoy

    The Bisons faced off against their ESDAA Western New York I-90 rival, the Wildcats from Rochester School Deaf, this afternoon. In a much anticipated match-up, the Bisons were putting their undefeated record against an opponent who has always played us tough every season. The start of the 1st half was closely contested. We missed some great opportunities to score and although the Bisons appeared to be the more skilled team, it was still 0-0 after 15 minutes of play. Finally, Brady Bartell was able to score a "blue collar" goal by out hustling our opponents' defenders and slipping a shot past their keeper. We always preach that hard work will always beat talent when talent isn't working hard. Nothing makes a coach happier than seeing hard work and talent come together at the same time. Once the Bisons took the lead, they were able to settle in and shut down everything RSD brought to us. Our defense continued its steady play and just "rinsed and repeated" what they'd been doing in their previous two matches to help Saul A. earn his 3rd shutout in as many games. Yasir A. and Michael N. were each able to give us some breathing room by tallying a goal. The Bisons maintained their unbeaten record by defeating Rochester by the score of 3-0 and improved their overall record to
    3-0 and their record amongst deaf schools to 1-0. However, there is no time for the Bisons to rest because we're back on the field tomorrow for our 3rd game in a row in as many days against NFCAA league opponent Chesteron Academy. If you haven't been able to catch a match yet, we would always appreciate the extra support tomorrow. We hope to see you there.
    Thanks,
    Coach Booke & Coach LeRoy

    The Bisons played in their first home game of their 2022 season against the Falcons from the Stanley G. Falk school and were able to pick up right where they left off last week.  Our defense posted its 2nd consecutive shutout with the help of Di’Ovanny Lacen, Michael Norris, Ifeanyi Nwabueze, & Dalton Burlingame. Our offense was able to capitalize on a few mistakes made by the opposition and got 2 goals from Farhad Ghorbani and 1 goal from Brady Bartel.  The 3-0 victory puts our overall record 2-0 in the NFCAA.  Tomorrow we’re at home for our first ESDAA match against I-90 rival, the Wildcats from Rochester School for the Deaf.  It should be an exciting competitive match.  Looking forward to seeing all of you there as you come the field to support your Bisons!

    The Bisons finally got to play in their first match of the 2022 season against league opponent Christian Academy of Western New York(CAWNY). It took the players a few minutes to work up to game speed but once we settled in, there was no looking back. Our offense combined for 5 goals including 2 a piece from Yasir Abdollahi & Farhad Ghorbani. Brady Bartell also joined the action knocking in a rebound off the oppositions goal post. Our defense was stout led by senior captain Magdi Mohamed and goalie Saul Alvira who posted his first shutout of the season. The Bisons earned their 1st victory by a final score of 5-0. Please wish the players congrats on a job well done. We return to game action next week Tuesday for our first home game at 4pm.
