Men's Water Polo Loses Early Lead in Loss at No. 13 Navy
Sept. 17, 2008
ANNAPOLIS, MD - The George Washington men's water polo team led 4-3 after the first quarter, but couldn't maintain its lead in an 18-8 CWPA Southern Division loss at 13th-ranked Navy Wednesday evening.
GW (4-5, 0-1 CWPA Southern Division) enjoyed a one-goal cushion after the first eight minutes of action, but Navy (6-4, 2-0) scored seven of the games' next eight goals to take a 10-5 lead in the third quarter. The Mids closed out the game with a 7-2 run in the fourth quarter to saddle the Colonials with the loss.
GW heads to Cambridge, MA, and Harvard University for the two-day ECAC Championship beginning Saturday. The second-seeded Colonials face seventh-seeded Iona in Saturday's opener at Noon. GW then faces either third-seeded Harvard or seventh-seeded No. 20 Johns Hopkins in Saturday's late game, with a Sunday game to be determined.
