Sept. 27, 2015
WASHINGTON -- The George Washington men's water polo team fell to No. 11 Princeton, 14-9, on Sunday afternoon in Southern Division action at the Charles E. Smith Center Pool.
Sophomore Pierce Deamer paced the Colonials with five points on three goals and two assists while adding a pair of ejections drawn. Freshman Brett Else scored twice and added an assist, and sophomore Quentin Montgomery drew five ejections and scored one goal.
Princeton (8-3, 2-0 Southern) scored the first three goals of the game before Montgomery and sophomore Noah McKinnie Braun tallied back-to-back goals. The Tigers then scored with 18 seconds to go in the quarter to take a 4-2 lead after one.
Deamer opened the scoring in the second period to make it a one-goal game, 4-3, at the 6:01 mark, but Princeton tallied the final three goals of the frame to take a 7-3 halftime lead.
Else scored his first of two third-quarter goals at the start of the stanza, but Princeton used a 5-2 run to break the game open, taking a 12-6 lead after three. The Tigers then rattled off two more to start the fourth and go up 14-6 before freshman James McLean ignited a 3-0 GW run over the final 2:34 for the 14-9 final margin. Deamer scored the Colonials' last two goals of the game to complete his second hat trick of the weekend and sixth of the season.
Ryan Wilson and Thomas Nelson led the Tigers with four goals apiece.
The Colonials (2-9, 0-3 Southern) return to action on Thursday evening, when they begin their annual West Coast trip at the University of Redlands.
