Men's Water Polo Sunk by #10 Navy
Colonials Begin California Road Trip Tomorrow
Oct. 3, 2006
ANNAPOLIS, MD - The George Washington men's water polo team suffered through a poor first-half performance for the second straight game and dropped a 16-5 decision at 10th-ranked Navy in Collegiate Water Polo Association action on Tuesday evening.
GW (6-6, 0-5 CWPA East) allowed goals on Navy's first two possessions, trailed by four goals midway through the first quarter and trailed 9-0 with 5:07 remaining in the first half. The Colonials scored three unanswered goals to cut the deficit to 9-3 early in the second half, but the Mids responded with a 3-0 run of their own to lead 12-3 after three periods and coasted the rest of the way to stay undefeated in league play. Navy improved to 15-5 overall, 5-0 in the CWPA Southern Division, Eastern Region.
"We had some good opportunities, but we let Navy make runs on us in front of a very large home crowd," said head coach Scott Reed. "We need everyone else to start contributing a little bit more."
GW will catch an early morning flight to California and prepare for its seven-day excursion to the Golden State. The Colonials will take on Claremont-Mudd-Scripps College tomorrow, October 4, at 10:00 pm EDT.
