Manage a point in league game with Navy, drop non-league games with Mason and Georgetown.

On Friday, October 12th, their first league game at home, GW dropped an overtime loss to Navy. The first period was a low-scoring-affair, with Navy not scoring until 5 minutes left in the period.  GW snagged a 2-1 lead early in the second on goals from junior forward Alec Yerkovich and senior forward Brian Sargent.  Navy would tie the game two minutes later, and then with 3 minutes left to go freshman defenseman Eddie Tuohy restored GW's lead to head into the locker room after two. Navy tied the game up early in the third, and then freshman forward Andrew Fromen scored halfway through the period.  That lead would not last as Navy would tie the game with 5 minutes left and it would go to overtime.  Two minutes into overtime, Navy capitalized on a rare OT powerplay goal and GW took only a point from the game.

The next afternoon, GW had a high-scoring affair with George Mason.  The game began with a flurry of goals through the first 8 minutes, with GW giving up 4, but in between scoring by freshman forward Cooper May and junior forward Alex Yerkovich to keep GW within two.  GW would make it a one goal game just before the end of the period off a goal by freshman forward Andrew Fromen to be down 4-3 going into the break.  The second and third periods each began with a goal by GW - May netting his second to start the second and junior defenseman Adam Micchiche to star the third - but Mason responded with two goals each period to take an 8-5 victory.

The next weekend, GW faced Georgetown in another high scoring affair, and again the first period began with a flurry of goals. GW started the scoring immediately (literally) with an off the faceoff goal by senior forward Will Yerkovich. Georgetown would respond with two goals of their own each a minute and a half after the other, and at the 5 minute mark W. Yerkovich would tie the game up at 2.  The remaining 15 minutes would be a stalemate and remain tied after 1.  GW took a 3-2 lead just a minute and a half in by junior forward Alec Yerkovich, which would hold until the middle of the stanza when each team would trade goals (a May goal sandwiched between two Georgetown goals). The teams would again head into the locker room tied 4-4.  Will Yerkovich would complete the hattrick early in the third, but Georgetown would respond with two more goals to take the game 6-5.

GW hosts Virginia Tech for their final game of October (the 26th) and their final College Hockey Night in DC at MedStar Capitals Iceplex at 10:40pm.
