Men's Water Polo Falters at #17 Bucknell
GW Drops Third Straight Following Fast Start to Season
Sept. 30, 2006
LEWISBURG, PA - The George Washington men's water polo team couldn't recover from a poor first half and dropped a 13-8 decision at 17th-ranked Bucknell on Saturday.
GW (6-5, 0-4 CWPA East) fell behind 5-1 after the first quarter and 9-2 at the close of the first half en route to its third consecutive loss, all to CWPA conference opponents. The Colonials outscored the Bison, 6-4, in the second half, but the deficit was too large to overcome.
Senior John Hornberger and rookie Nick Archambault led the Colonials with two goals apiece. Sergei Shev, Connor Lynagh, John Jennings and Gustavo Canto each added one goal. Junior Chris Whittam made eight saves before being replaced by junior Justin Licht, who posted two fourth-quarter stops.
GW has lost five of its last seven games after opening the season with a program-record four consecutive wins. Bucknell (7-5, 2-1 CWPA East) snapped a three-game skid with the victory.
The Colonials return to action at No. 10 Navy on Tuesday, October 3, at 7:00 pm. The team will then play seven games in a span of four days in California, including four games in the Claremont Convergence, beginning Wednesday, October 4.
