Sept. 20, 2008
Cambridge, MA - The George Washington men's water polo team made a big comeback, but fell short by a goal against Johns Hopkins in the semifinals of the ECAC Championships in Cambridge, MA. The Colonials tied the score in the fourth quarter at eight, but gave up two late goals in the 10-9 loss.
GW (5-6, 0-1 CWPA Southern Divison) took a 3-2 lead after one quarter, and was tied at five at the half. The Colonials undoing was the third quarter, where they were outscored 3-0 and fell behind by an 8-5 margin.
Head Coach Scott Reed was pleased with his team in defeat. "It was a very good game," said Reed. "It was a close one and we had chances to win late. We stormed back after falling behind by three goals, which is very encouraging for a coach. Hopkins was just able to make plays late to win the game."
GW will return to action today when they face off against Bucknell in the consolation game at 12:00 p.m.
