CAMBRIDGE, MA - The No. 9 seed George Washington men's water polo team lost to No. 7 seed MIT, 14-6, Sunday to finish in eighth place at the ECAC Championship, held at Harvard's Blodgett Pool.
GW (4-8) begins CWPA Southern Division play next weekend with its first games at Smith Center Pool of the season. The Colonials host Bucknell Saturday at 8:00 pm, then welcome Princeton Sunday at 12:00 pm.
It marks the second straight year GW was beaten by MIT in the ECAC Championship's seventh-place game.
The Engineers seized control of the seventh-place contest with a 5-2 first quarter, then blanked the Colonials in the second period to grab a 6-2 lead at the half. GW got three goals in the third quarter, but surrendered five as MIT led 11-5 after 24 minutes of play en route to the 14-6 win.
Freshman Daniel Tyner recorded a hat trick, followed by one goal apiece from sophomore German Olano and rookies Paul Deasey and Jason Veris. Sophomore goalkeeper Cameron Illes played a quarter and a half and made six saves, while sophomore Sean Joyce played the final two and a half quarters and stopped seven shots.
