Sept. 13, 2009
PRINCETON, NJ - The George Washington men's water polo team struggled offensively in a pair of losses on the final day of the Princeton Invitational Sunday, falling 10-7 to MIT and 17-7 to 16th-ranked Santa Clara.
Freshman goalkeeper Cameron Illes made 12 saves, but GW (2-7) converted just 7-of-32 shot attempts in the three-goal loss to MIT. The Colonials trailed the Engineers, 6-3, at halftime and couldn't make up ground in the second half. Senior John-Claude Wright led the attack with two goals, followed by one each from senior Rick Rogers, sophomore Cray Rogers and freshmen Guy Helman, John Paul Bezerra and Ross Kirkbaumer.
In Sunday's Invite finale, GW played even, 3-3, with No. 16 Santa Clara after a quarter and trailed by only three goals, 8-5, at halftime, but the Broncos outscored the Colonials 9-2 in the second half for the 10-goal victory. Wright and Cray Rogers had two goals apiece, while seniors Marshall Freedman, Nick Archambault and Rick Rogers each added a goal. Illes made four saves and rookie Sean Joyce registered one stop.
GW returns to Princeton, NJ, next weekend for the 10-team ECAC Championship. Eighth-seeded GW faces a rematch with ninth-seeded Harvard in the first round Friday, Sept. 18 at 9:15 pm. The Colonials lost to the Crimson, 12-7, in the first game of the Princeton Invite Saturday.
