Canisius, Niagara men's soccer lead the MAAC

Chew on this: With the non-conference portion of the season completed this past weekend, Canisius and Niagara have a combined 13-1-5 record. Both sit at the top of the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference standings. The Purple Eagles are undefeated in nine games with a 6-0-3 mark and are on a three-game winning streak. Canisius is 7-1-2. The lone loss came to host UNLV in a tournament earlier this  month. Both teams have a week off before opening MAAC play on Oct. 5 and both seem to be in contention for a conference title.

The teams square off just once in the regular season -- at 7 p.m. on Oct. 13 at Demske Sports Complex. Keep that one on your calendar. It has that "instant classic" potential.
