FC Buffalo again gave away a halftime lead, this time on home field and against hated rivals Erie. FCB fell 2-1 in front of a crowd of more than 600 at the Demske Sports Complex at Canisius College.

Russell Cicerone’s 32nd minute finish of a great Chris Walter run gave the Wolves a 1-0 lead, but the Admirals struck twice in the second half to win.

Karl Jones scored for Erie in the 56th minute and Andre Landell wandered through the 18 to win it in the 90th minute for the Admirals (1W-3L-0T).

Walter was named Rich Products’ Man of the Match for his efforts, but it will come as little consolation for a team now winless in three.

FC Buffalo falls to 1W-2L-1T on the year, and hosts Detroit City next Sunday at 2 pm with the chance to rebound and find a win against unbeaten “Le Rouge.”
