Sept. 28, 2014
PRINCETON, N.J. - The 20th-ranked George Washington men's water polo team fell to No. 12 Princeton, 13-7, in CWPA Southern Division action on Sunday morning at the Tigers' DeNunzio Pool.
Princeton scored the first seven goals of the game, including five in the first quarter, before senior Ridvan Pehlivan put GW (6-5, 0-4 Southern) on the board for the first time at the 3:30 mark of the second. Senior Brian Mojica added a goal of his own 45 seconds later, but the Tigers led, 8-2, at halftime.
The teams played even throughout the second half, with each squad scoring three goals in the third quarter and two in the fourth, but the Colonials were not able to overcome their deficit and fell, 13-7.
Freshman Pierce Deamer and senior Adam Wrobel led the Colonials with two goals apiece, while junior Bogdan Petkovic recorded three assists and six steals and junior goalkeeper Connor Dillon made 10 saves.
The Colonials return to action on Thursday when they visit California Baptist in the first of five games on the West Coast.
