Sept. 27, 2009
PRINCETON, NJ - The George Washington men's water polo team fell to 0-2 in CWPA Southern Division play with a 15-7 loss at No. 17 Princeton, but rebounded to defeat Queens (NY), 14-6, at the Tigers' DeNunzio Pool Sunday.
GW (5-12, 0-2) couldn't contain Princeton's Mark Zalewski, who scored six goals as the Colonials dropped their fifth game against a nationally ranked opponent this season. Freshman Cameron Illes made 10 saves to pace the defense, while senior Nick Archambault led the attack with two goals.
In Sunday's late game, GW led by two, 3-1, after the first quarter and expanded its lead to four, 8-4, by halftime. The Colonials then outscored the Knights 6-2 in the third quarter to lead 14-6 before Queens (NY) was forced to withdraw dropping to six players due to foul trouble and injury.
Senior John-Claude Wright recorded five goals to bring his season total to 39, among the top goal totals in the nation. Senior Rick Rogers and sophomore Cray Rogers added three goals apiece in the winning effort. Illes finished with five saves for his fifth victory of the year.
GW makes its annual West Coast trip next weekend and will participate in the Claremont Convergence on Friday and Saturday. The Colonials open with Cal Lutheran at 5:00 pm ET Friday afternoon.
