Whittam Makes a Career-High 11 Saves Versus Princeton, Colonials Lose, 8-4
GW Opens Conference Play with a Four-Goal Loss at Princeton
Sept. 13, 2004
PRINCETON, NJ - Freshman goalkeeper Chris Whittam stopped a career-best 11 shots in GW's, 8-4, loss at Princeton on Sunday, September 12 at DeNunzio Pool. The Colonials are now 1-4 overall this season and are 0-1 in CWPA league action.
Whittam, who bettered his previous personal best of eight saves, kept the Colonials in the match against a tough Tigers' attack.
The two teams battled to a,1-1, tie after the first quarter, before Princeton outscored the Colonials, 4-1, in the second frame to take a 5-2 advantage at the half. Three of the Tigers' four second-period goals came on man-up opportunities.
In the second half, GW got an extra-man goal from freshman Nick Eddy, his ninth tally of the year, and a penalty goal from sophomore John Hornberger in the third period, but still trailed the Tigers, 6-4, after three periods. Princeton tacked on two more goals in the fourth period to establish the final margin.
Senior co-captain Nick Koenemann and freshman John Jennings tallied the Colonials other two goals, but GW was just 1-for-9 on its man-up chances in the match.
John Stover scored twice for Princeton while Sean Dryden, Jacob Harter, Chris Kelsch, Nicholas Seaver and Jamal Motlagh each had one goal. Freshman Scott Syverson made nine saves in the cage for the Tigers.
The Colonials will host No. 11 Navy in their home-opener on Wednesday, September 15 at the Smith Center Pool. Game time is scheduled for 8:00 p.m.
