Sept. 18, 2004
LEWISBURG, PA - The George Washington men's water polo team got outscored 6-1 to open the match and lost, 9-3, to Bucknell on Saturday, September 18 in a CWPA Southern Conference Eastern Region showdown. The Colonials are now 1-5 overall and 0-3 in league competition, while the Bison improved to 5-2.
GW took an early 1-0 lead on a goal by junior Jonathan Lo at the 6:09 mark of the first quarter. It was his second tally of the season. Bucknell answered by scoring the match's next six goals to take a 6-1 advantage at the half.
The score remained 6-1 until sophomore John Hornberger notched a goal with 3:47 remaining in the third period to cut the Bison margin to four, 6-2, but that's as close as the Colonials would get as Bucknell outscored GW 3-1 the rest of the way.
Freshman Robert Cromer recorded GW's third goal. It was his second career tally.
Elliot Benoist led Bucknell with three goals, while Aaron Platshon and Jay Danforth each scored twice for the Bison.
GW will play Johns Hopkins at 4:00 p.m. on Saturday afternoon.
