Men's Water Polo Wraps Navy Open With Win Over Queens
Tyner Nets Five to Lead Colonials Past Knights
Sept. 5, 2010
ANNAPOLIS, MD - Paced by freshman Daniel Tyner's five goals, the George Washington men's water polo team topped Queens (NY), 9-7, Sunday to finish with a split of its four games at the Navy Open this weekend. GW dropped Sunday's first game to Mercyhurst, 5-3, despite sophomore goalkeeper Cameron Illes 13 saves.
The second quarter proved to be the difference against an upset-minded Queens squad that had already beat Mercyhurst and upset No. 18 Bucknell, 15-14, earlier Sunday. The Colonials outscored the Knights 4-2 in the period to open a two-goal advantage they maintained the second half en route to the victory.
In Sunday's opener, Illes kept GW within striking distance with his 13 saves, but the offense converted just 3-of-17 shots and 2-of-7 man-advantage opportunities to fall to Mercyhurst, 5-3.
Tyner added to his outstanding debut with a goal and four ejections drawn for the Colonials. He leads GW with 11 goals in four games. Sophomore Guy Helman and freshman Paul Deasey also scored against the Lakers.
GW (2-2) again plays four games in two days next weekend at the Princeton Invitational in Princeton, NJ. GW will face preseason 13th-ranked Santa Clara and Iona next Saturday, then battle Fordham and Harvard on Sunday. The Colonials lost to the Rams, 11-5, in their 2010 debut yesterday.
