Men's Water Polo Closes Princeton Invitational
Colonials fall to two ranked foes Saturday
PRINCETON, N.J. - George Washington men's water polo dropped two games to ranked opponents Saturday to close the Princeton Invitational at DeNunzio Pool.
The 17th-ranked Colonials fell to No. 10 Harvard, 14-8, and No. 14 Brown, 10-6, to finish a challenging weekend at 1-3. The other loss came Friday to No. 4 UCLA.
Harvard 14, GW 8: A second-half surge pushed the Crimson past the Colonials.
GW tied it at 4 on Deamer's goal with 1:18 left in the second quarter. From there, Harvard (4-2) asserted control, scoring the first four goals of the second half to take the lead for good.
Brown 10, GW 6: The Colonials rallied from an early deficit but couldn't finish the comeback in the nightcap.
The Bears (4-4) never trailed after scoring the first four goals. GW kept the heat on, though.
Destici's score with 3:17 left in the third quarter pulled the Colonials within 6-4. Brown got back-to-back goals from Austin Hwang and Tyler Kirchberg to open the fourth quarter and restore the cushion.
Deamer and Andras Levai registered two goals apiece with Mavis and Destici also finding the net.
WEEKEND SPOTLIGHT: Levai has proven a consistent offensive threat in his first two weekends as a Colonial. The freshman utility posted a team-high eight goals at the Princeton Invitational. His best performance came Friday against Iona when he registered four goals in an 18-11 victory. He's now posted 17 goals through seven games this season.
UP NEXT: GW will spend next weekend at the Bucknell Invitational. The highlight of the three-day slate is a Saturday rematch with Harvard. They are also scheduled to face Salem International, University of Toronto and Mercyhurst.
