Buffalo State scored on its opening drive, using just four plays on the ground, covering 50 yards.  After a 33-yard keeper by Kacz, Ismail Brooks (Auburn/Auburn shot up the middle for an 11-yard  score. 

Paterson answered on its first possession, however, marching 60 yards on nine plays, taking advantage of a third-down pass interference call that kept the drive alive.  Daryl Shuler (Peekskill, NY/White Plains) capped the drive with a 2-yard touchdown run to even the score at 7-7.   

After a Jim Hamill (Stanhope, NJ/Lenape Valley) interception early in the second quarter, the Pioneers took a 14-7 lead on a 69-yard scoring run by German. 

Buffalo State knotted the score at 14-14 on the ensuing drive, however, marching 72 yards on nine plays, ending with an 11-yard sprint by Pete.

The Pioneers climbed back into the lead just 10 seconds before halftime on a 43-yard field goal by Robert Sinegra (Wharton, NJ/Morris Knolls), leaving the score 17-14 at the break.

Buffalo State took its first lead of the game just 1:30 into the second half when Vacchio picked off a Gresik slant pass and sprinted 33 yards for the touchdown.

The Bengals added two more third quarter scores with a 31-yard run by Brooks, and a 2-yard run by Kacz.

Sinegra stopped the bleeding for the Pioneers with a 23-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter.  After a quick three-and-out, William Paterson cut the deficit to 35-27 on an 18-yard pass from Gresik to Joseph Cordato (Bayonne, NJ/Bayonne)

After two more defensive stops, William Paterson looked to move down field for a potential tying score, but Healy came up with the Bengals' second interception of the game and returned it 37 yards to the Pioneers' 7-yard line.  Brooks punched it in on the very next play for his third touchdown of the day to complete the scoring in the game.

Buffalo State will travel to Kean for a 1 p.m. kickoff next Saturday.
