COLLEGE PARK, Md. -- It was a tale of two halves for University of Richmond's field hockey team on Saturday in College Park, Md.
The Spiders outshot Syracuse University, 6-3, in the first half, but failed to capitalize on the opportunities, going into halftime tied, 0-0.
In the second half, the number three team in the nation made them pay, scoring two goals, while owning a 9-3 shooting advantage, to win the first round of the NCAA tournament, 2-0, ending Richmond's season.
"Field hockey is a sport of momentum," Richmond coach Gina Lucido said.
