Men's Water Polo Sunk By No. 9 Navy, 14-3
Midshipmen's Firepower Prove Too Much For Colonials
Oct. 3, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC - The Colonials dropped their seventh-straight match, losing to the ninth-ranked Naval Academy 14-3 in their home opener, as GW couldn't stop the Midshipmen's attack.
GW (2-9, 0-3 CWPA) began the match with a strong showing, scoring first and holding the Midshipmen (8-3) to a single goal. Junior Pat Dodge floated a pass over Navy's keeper, Nick Hill a minute into the match. However, that would be the only goal GW's leading scorer would net, as Navy smothered him every time he touched the ball.
The Midshipmen broke the match open in the second quarter, outscoring the Colonials 6-1, taking a 7-2 lead into the half. A three-goal third and four-goal fourth quarter by Navy spelled the demise of the Colonials who were only able to muster one more score.
GW returns to action Wednesday, October 9, when they host Johns Hopkins in a 7:00 p.m. match.
