CAMBRIDGE, MA - The George Washington men's water polo team (2-9, 0-4 CWPA Southern) posted a sixth-place finish at the ECAC Championship after losing to Johns Hopkins, 10-9, on Sunday, Sept. 26.
Senior co-captain Nick Koenemann scored four fourth-quarter goals to tie the contest, 9-9, with 2:18 left in regulation. With 44 seconds to play, the Colonials had possession of the ball with a chance to win the game, but their shot hit the crossbar. The Blue Jays secured the rebound and notched the game-winner on the counter-attack with 22 seconds left.
GW overcame a 4-2 halftime deficit and trailed, 8-5, heading into the fourth period. Koenemann's four tallies led the team and junior Tom Mills finished with eight saves in the cage for GW.
