No. 17 Bucknell Defeats GW, 13-7
Koenemann's Three Goals Not Enough for Colonials
Oct. 2, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington men's water polo team (2-10, 0-5 CWPA Southern) lost to No. 17 Bucknell, 13-7, in a CWPA Southern Conference showdown on Saturday, Oct. 2 at the Smith Center Pool.
Senior co-captain Nick Koenemann paced the Colonials with three goals and freshman Nick Eddy contributed two, but it wasn't enough as the Bison (10-2, 3-0 CWPA Southern) got four tallies from Elliot Benoist and cruised to a six-goal victory.
With the match tied, 2-2, in the first quarter, Bucknell notched three straight goals, including two in the final minute to take a 5-2 advantage into the second period. The Colonials increased their defensive pressure in the second frame and held the Bison to one goal in the quarter. Sophomore John Hornberger netted GW's only marker of the period to cut the Bison's margin to 6-3 at the half.
Koenemann scored on a man-up chance with 5:04 left in the third period to get GW within two, 6-4, at the 5:04 mark, but Bucknell answered with three straight goals and held a 9-5 lead heading into the final period. The Bison outscored GW, 4-2, in fourth quarter to produce the winning margin.
Koenemann's three goals gives him 20 on the season, which leads the team. Eddy now has 14 tallies in 2004, the second-highest total on the squad.
Junior goalie Tom Mills made seven saves in the cage for GW, while Trevor Mullins stopped eight shots for the Bison.
Benoist's four goals led Bucknell and the Bison got two goals each from Sean Robinson, Bradley Roslyn and Kyle Roslyn.
The Colonials will host CWPA conference foe Johns Hopkins on Tuesday, Oct. 5 at 7:30 in the Smith Center Pool.
