Men's Water Polo Tops Harvard, Places Seventh at ECAC Championship
Colonials Compete in ECAC Event for first time since 2004
Oct. 1, 2007
LEWISBURG, PA - The George Washington men's water polo team matched its season-high with 17 goals, led by red-shirt junior Nick Eddy's five-goal effort, to defeat Harvard, 17-11, in the seventh-place game of the ECAC Championship, hosted by Bucknell, on Sunday.
GW (6-6) opened the eight-team tournament against No. 13 Navy Saturday, the Colonials third consecutive nationally ranked opponent. GW trailed by just two goals at the end of both the second and third periods, but Navy proved too much in the fourth quarter, scoring six goals to hand the Colonials an 11-5 loss. Junior David Zenk led the attack with a hat trick as the Colonials converted just 1-of-9 man-up opportunities against the Midshipmen. Senior goalkeeper Chris Whittam, who entered the weekend ranked sixth in the nation in saves, made nine stops.
The Colonials offense struggled against Brown in Saturday's late game, connecting on 7-of-32 shots in a 9-7 loss to the Bears. Zenk once again led the way with two goals and three points, while Whittam made six saves.
GW snapped its four-game losing skid with Sunday's triumph over Harvard. Eddy finished with six points on five goals and an assist against the Crimson, while Zenk led the offensive barrage with nine points on four goals and five assists. Sophomore John-Claude Wright and rookie Nick Yeager each posted a hat trick and sophomores Connor Lynagh and Rick Rogers had one goal apiece. Whittam turned away 12 shots to up his season total to 114. Zenk finished with nine goals, six assists and nine steals in three games.
GW continues CWPA Southern Division play at No. 17 Johns Hopkins Tuesday, October 2, at 7:00 pm.
