Mistakes Cost Men's Water Polo at Hopkins
Hornberger's Hat Trick Not Enough Against Blue Jays
Sept. 20, 2006
BALTIMORE, MD - The George Washington men's water polo team struggled defensively, allowing a season-high 20 goals, en route to a 20-11 loss at Johns Hopkins in Collegiate Water Polo Association action on Wednesday.
GW (6-3, 0-2 CWPA East), ranked seventh in the latest CWPA Top 10 poll, fell behind 4-1 after the first quarter and never recovered. The Colonials trailed 8-5 at the intermission and were outscored 12-6 in the second half.
Senior John Hornberger led GW in scoring for the sixth time this season with three goals. Sophomores David Zenk and Sergei Shev and freshman John-Claude Wright each added two goals. Junior goalkeeper Chris Whittam posted nine saves.
Johns Hopkins (5-4, 1-1 CWPA) is the nation's third-ranked Division III program and is sixth in the most recent CWPA Top 10 poll. The Blue Jays dropped out of the national rankings (No. 20) following a 15-5 loss to then 11th-ranked St. Francis (NY) on September 9.
The Colonials host CWPA East foe Navy in their Smith Center Pool opener next Wednesday, September 27 at 8:00 pm.
