FC Buffalo falls in Erie, 1-0

Niagara Gazette — FC Buffalo took its first loss of the 2013 National Premier Soccer League season, dropping a 1-0 decision to their archrivals Erie Admirals, Sunday afternoon at Cathedral Prep Event Center Field in Erie, Pa.

The game-winning goal came late in the second half, during the 83rd minute, when Karl Jones headed the ball into the Buffalo net off a corner kick by Luca Campos, beating Blitzers goalkeeper Andrew Coughlin.
