Sept. 14, 2008
PRINCETON, NJ - Three players recorded three goals apiece and senior David Zenk had two goals and five assists as the George Washington men's water polo team topped Iona, 15-12, in the final game of the Princeton Invitational Sunday. The Colonials opened play Sunday with a 14-8 loss to No. 15 Santa Clara.
GW (4-4) trailed by a goal at halftime against nationally ranked Santa Clara, but the Broncos doubled-up the Colonials in the second half, 10-5, and converted nine of its 14 man-advantage opportunities to pull away. Junior John-Claude Wright led GW with three goals, followed by two tallies from senior Sergei Shev and one goal apiece from Zenk, sophomore Nick Yeager and freshman Cray Rogers. Zenk also added four assists.
In Sunday's finale, GW outscored Iona 6-2 in the second quarter to assume an 11-6 edge at halftime and withstood a fourth-quarter rally from the Gaels to pick up the 15-12 victory. The Colonials took advantage of the power play, converting 8-of-11 man-up opportunities. Shev, senior Nick Eddy and junior Rick Rogers each netted three goals, followed by Zenk's seven-point outing. Wright also scored twice, while Cray Rogers and junior Nick Archambault each added a goal. Freshman goalkeeper Alex Sotolongo made 10 saves.
