No. 20 GW Men's Water Polo Edged by Bucknell, 11-10
Colonials Visit No. 12 Princeton on Sunday
Sept. 27, 2014
LEWISBURG, Pa.- The George Washington men's water polo team dropped a heartbreaking 11-10 decision to CWPA Southern Division rival Bucknell on Saturday evening at the Bison's Kinney Natatorium.
GW (6-4, 0-3 Southern) scored the first three goals of the game and held a 3-2 lead after the first quarter. Bucknell was able to tie the game early in the second period, but the Colonials responded and took a 7-5 advantage at the break.
The Bison, however, scored three unanswered goals to open the third and take the lead and were up, 9-8, after three quarters. Bucknell scored the first goal of the fourth, but GW pulled within one, 10-9, with 1:27 to go then got the ball back and called a timeout to draw up a play, which resulted in the game-tying goal, but the Bison regained the lead on their next possession. The Colonials had the ball with 14 seconds left, but were unable to score and Bucknell held on for the 11-10 win.
The Colonials return to action on Sunday when they visit No. 12 Princeton at 11 a.m.
