GW (6-5, 0-4 CWPA East) fell behind 5-1 after the first quarter and 9-2 at the close of the first half en route to its third consecutive loss, all to CWPA conference opponents. The Colonials outscored the Bison, 6-4, in the second half, but the deficit was too large to overcome.
Senior John Hornberger and rookie Nick Archambault led the Colonials with two goals apiece. Sergei Shev, Connor Lynagh, John Jennings and Gustavo Canto each added one goal. Junior Chris Whittam made eight saves before being replaced by junior Justin Licht, who posted two fourth-quarter stops.
