Oct. 3, 2005
PRINCETON, NJ - The George Washington University men's water polo team dropped both of its contests on Saturday, Oct. 1, at Princeton's DeNunzio Pool, losing 11-3 to Bucknell and 9-7 to Salem International. Sophomore Nick Eddy (La Jolla, CA) provided the offensive spark for the Colonials with four goals in the two games.
In its opening game on Saturday, GW struggled offensively against Bucknell and trailed the Bison 3-1 after the first period and 5-2 at intermission. The Colonials could only muster a single goal in the second half, while Bucknell kept the pressure on to claim an 11-3 victory. Eddy, senior co-captain Anthony Guadagni (Visalia, CA) and freshman David Zenk (St. Louis, MO) each notched goals for GW, while senior co-captain Tom Mills (Los Altos, CA) made six saves in goal.
Later in the afternoon, the Colonials matched up with Salem International and held a 2-1 advantage after the first quarter. GW was able to extend its lead in the second period scoring three goals to the Tigers' one to take a 5-2 lead into halftime. The second half played out a little differently though as Salem picked up its offensive intensity with seven goals over the final two periods, while the Colonials managed just two scores and could not make up the difference.
Eddy led the way once again with three goals and an assist for GW, while senior Jonathan Lo (Hong Kong, China) scored two and Zenk one. In the cage, sophomore Chris Whittam (Hillsborough, CA) made seven saves.
The Colonials (6-9) return to action when they host Navy on Tuesday, Oct. 4, at 8 p.m. at the Charles E. Smith Athletic Center pool.
