Water Polo Edges Iona, Advances at ECAC Championship
No. 9 seed GW to face top-seeded, 20th-ranked Bucknell Saturday
Sept. 17, 2010
CAMBRIDGE, MA - Freshman utility Daniel Tyner broke a 4-4 tie with the game-winning goal with 3:11 remaining to lift the ninth-seeded George Washington men's water polo team past eighth-seeded Iona, 5-4, on the opening day of the ECAC Championship at Harvard's Blodgett Pool Friday.
GW (4-5) now advances to play No. 1 seed and CWPA Varsity No. 20 ranked Bucknell Saturday at 9:00 am. The winner will play at 7:40 pm and loser will play at 5:00 pm against opponents to be determined.
Tyner has already found Iona's number despite just playing his ninth collegiate game, having beaten the Gaels with late game-winning goals on two occasions so far this season. His five-meter penalty shot with 14 seconds left was the deciding goal in the Colonials' 12-11 victory over the Gaels on Sept. 11.
On Friday, Iona knotted the score at 4-4 with 3:39 left, only to have Tyner once again tally the clinching goal. He finished with two goals and five steals in the contest.
GW 5, IONA 4
GW - 1 - 3 - 0 - 1 -- 5
IC - 1 - 1 - 1 - 1 -- 4
GW goals: Tyner 2, Deasey, Veris, Carrino
