Richmond Vs. Georgia State Score: Panthers Trail 28-7 At Halftime

Georgia State trails the Richmond Spiders 28-7 at halftime. The game is Georgia State’s first conference game in the Colonial Athletic Association.

The Panther defense was on the field for 14 of the game’s first 16 minutes and was already showing signs of fatigue in the second quarter. After stopping the Spiders on their first drive they allowed three consecutive scoring drives of 50 yards or more.

Georgia State went for fourth down conversions twice trying to get the offense going and were stopped both times.

Late in the second quarter the Panthers were able to score on a 13 yard pass from Ben McLane to Albert Wilson to make the score 21-7. On the ensuing Richmond drive, the Panthers were able to force a punt and retain possession with 40 seconds remaining before halftime.

However, the first play of the drive was a pass that was deflected by GSU tight end Emmanuel Obeughi and went straight into the hands of a Spider defender. Richmond responded with a 32 yards pass which set up a 1 yard touchdown as time expired to make the score 28-7.

Georgia State running back Donald Russell leads all rushers with 80 yards on nine carries.
