The Bills, Sabres, Bandits, Bisons and…the Hunters? The Buffalo Hunters, one of eight teams in the inaugural season of the American Ultimate Disc League, debuted last weekend with a 26-14 loss to the Philadelphia Spinners.
Here’s a YouTube video of the game recap by Bird’s Eye Sports (features solely Spinners’ highlights, and unfortunately, there were a lot of those):

On May 20, the new professional ultimate frisbee team will play its first home match at UB North’s Kunz Stadium (southwest end of campus) against the Rhode Island Rampage. Individual tickets are only $6, while season tickets—totaling eight games—run for $30.
