Water Polo Falls Short Versus No. 17 Princeton, 13-9
Sept. 26, 2010
WASHINGTON, DC - George Washington men's water polo freshmen Daniel Tyner and Paul Deasey totaled five points each, but No. 17 Princeton's 3-0 run in the second quarter proved to be the difference as the Colonials fell to the Tigers, 13-9, in CWPA Southern Division action at Smith Center Pool Sunday afternoon.
GW (5-9, 1-1 CWPA Southern Division, East Region) continued to take advantage of its extra-man opportunities, going 6-of-10 against the Tigers after converting 8-of-11 man-up chances in Saturday's 10-7 win over Bucknell.
However, the Colonials surrendered five unanswered goals while being held scoreless for more than 14 minutes which helped the Tigers open a 9-3 advantage with less than two minutes to play in the third quarter.
GW attempted to rally, closing to within four goals on four separate occasions over the final nine minutes, but couldn't get any closer.
Tyner led the Colonials with four goals, one assist, five steals and three ejections drawn, while Deasey added a goal and four helpers. Rookie Nate Little scored a hat trick and sophomore John Paul Bezerra chipped in a goal and an assist.
Sophomore goalkeeper Cameron Illes finished with six saves.
GW returns to Smith Center Pool to host current 18th-ranked Navy on Wednesday, Oct. 6, at 8:00 pm.
