Now every game is must-win

Richmond Athletics

The one-game-season approach worked last weekend for Richmond in a 2-1 victory over St. Bonaventure.

In the sports world, the phrase "fighting with their backs against the wall" is thrown around a lot, and my initial reaction if someone says that to me is "nobody puts Baby in the corner." (That's a “Dirty Dancing’’ reference if you aren't up on pop culture.)

But the truth is our backs are up against a wall, and we have put ourselves there. We are 1-2 in the conference with five games left in the regular season. Every game is a must-win.

We are swinging. After what I saw last weekend in our 2-1 win over St. Bonaventure, we are fighting back. Every time we step on the field we have to have the mentality that it is a one-game season.

We play at George Mason on Saturday night. They will be ready, but so will we. It will be a great game.
