Men's Water Polo Falls at No. 17 Johns Hopkins
Colonials Prep for Five-Game California Trip This Weekend
Oct. 2, 2007
BALTIMORE, MD - The George Washington men's water polo team played even with 17th-ranked Johns Hopkins for the opening 16 minutes, but struggled over the final two periods in a 13-6 CWPA Southern Division loss in Baltimore on Tuesday evening.
Sophomore John-Claude Wright opened the game with one of his team-high three goals as GW (6-7, 0-3 CWPA Southern Division) tied the nationally ranked Blue Jays 2-2 after the first quarter and trailed by just one goal, 5-4, heading into halftime. However, Johns Hopkins (6-7, 2-1) went on to score eight of the game's next nine goals following intermission to blow open the close contest. Sophomore Marshall Freedman scored with 21 seconds left for the final 13-6 margin.
Seven of GW's 13 opponents this season have been ranked in the national Top 25, including each of the Colonials four CWPA Southern Division foes - Navy, Bucknell, Johns Hopkins and Princeton.
GW next makes its annual trip to California and the University of the Pacific Invitational, hosted at Delta College in Stockton, CA, this Saturday and Sunday. The Colonials will face a pair of current Top 25 programs in 19th-ranked California Baptist and 15th-ranked Pacific, as well as Fresno Pacific, on Saturday. GW concludes play on Sunday against Pacific `B' and West Valley College.
