George Washington University Hockey vs Richmond

The second game of the year I shot of the Colonials crew was against the Richmond Spiders.  This game started out pretty even and for a while I thought the Spiders might have a chance.  However, after a while it just started to feel like the Spiders were chasing the Colonials or just getting caught out of position most of the night.
