Sept. 8, 2003
ANNAPOLIS, MD - The men's water polo team battled through four matches this weekend, finishing the Navy Open with a 2-2 record with victories over Fordham and Toronto.
Nicholas Koenemann led the Colonials in scoring in their match versus St. Francis. GW fell behind early to the Terriers who outscored the Colonials 5-1 in the first quarter and 8-4 for the half. GW would only manage another three scores despite having numerous shots on goal and fell 17-7 in their opening match of the tournament.
The Colonials easily defeated Toronto in their second match, scoring eight goals in each half of play to cruise to a 16-6 victory. Koenemann and freshman Julian Price each recorded three scores to lead GW.
Versus MIT, the Colonials played a marathon match, fighting back and forth with the Engineers through seven periods of play. Three Colonials scored twice in the low-scoring affair that saw only 16 total goals between the two teams. After ending regulation in a 7-7 tie, GW and MIT played three more frames, until the Engineers gained the one goal edge in the seventh period to win 9-8. Seniors Pat Dodge and Gur Doitel joined freshman John Hornberger with two scores each.
The Colonials topped Fordham in their final match of the weekend, holding off a late charge by the Rams after taking a 8-3 lead into the final period. GW broke out to a 4-0 lead by halftime and appeared to be cruising to their second victory of the Navy Open. However, a fourth period rally by the Rams cut the Colonials' lead to just four goals. GW would prevail in the end, posting an 11-7 win.
GW faces UC Santa Cruz in Annapolis, MD at , their next match on Monday, September 15, in a 12:00 pm match.
