Men's Water Polo Splits First Day of Claremont Convergence
Colonials Edge Fresno Pacific, Fall to No. 20 Air Force
Oct. 3, 2008
CLAREMONT, CA - The George Washington men's water polo team split its two games on the opening day of the Claremont Convergence in California on Friday. The Colonials opened with a 10-8 victory over Fresno Pacific before falling to No. 20 Air Force, 12-5.
GW's (7-10) strong second quarter proved to be the difference against Fresno Pacific (4-8), as the Colonials outscored the Sunbirds 4-2 in the period to lead 6-4 at halftime en route to the 10-8 victory.
Redshirt senior Nick Eddy, the team's leading scorer, paced the attack with three goals, followed by two goals apiece from senior David Zenk and freshman Cray Rogers. Senior Sergei Shev, junior Nick Archambault and sophomore Nick Yeager also scored goals and rookie goalkeeper Alex Sotolongo made seven saves in the victory.
GW struggled against nationally ranked Air Force (7-8) in Friday's finale, falling behind 6-1 at the half and 10-2 after three quarters. The Colonials managed to outscore the Falcons 3-2 in the final period, but the damage of their 12 ejections in game proved to be too difficult to overcome. Eddy, Yeager, Cray Rogers, junior Rick Rogers and sophomore Brett Gall netted goals.
The Colonials wrap their West Coast trip with two games at the Claremont Convergence on Saturday, against Occidental at 10:15 am PT and Whittier at 4:30 pm PT.
