GW Splits Two Matches on First Day of ECAC Championship
Sept. 25, 2004
CAMBRIDGE, MA - Freshman John Jennings tallied a goal with five seconds remaining in regulation to lift the Colonials to a 9-8 triumph against Iona on Saturday, Sept. 25 at the ECAC Championship. The Colonials lost its opening match of day, 14-6, against No. 9 Princeton.
GW (2-8, 0-4 CWPA Southern) overcame a 6-3 halftime deficit against the Gaels, and held Iona to just two goals in the second half. The Colonials got three goals in the third quarter and three more tallies in the fourth period, including Jennings' game-winner to earn the victory.
Junior Anthony Guadagni paced GW with three scores in the match, while Jennings and freshman Nick Eddy each contributed two goals. Freshman Chris Whittam made seven saves in the cage for the Colonials.
Jennings also notched two goals in GW's first match of the day against undefeated Princeton. The Tigers went on a 5-0 run in the first period and cruised to a 14-6 triumph. Junior goalkeeper Tom Mills made 10 saves for GW. Failure to convert on man-up chances hurt GW against Princeton, as the Colonials only scored twice on 11 man-up opportunities.
The Colonials will play Johns Hopkins on Sunday, Sept. 26. If they win they will compete in the fourth-place match at 2:00 p.m.
