13th-Ranked Navy Downs Men's Water Polo, 14-3
Sophomore Chris Whittam notches 10 saves in the cage
Oct. 4, 2005
WASHINGTON, DC - Despite hanging close for a half, the George Washington men's water polo team was outlasted by 13th-ranked Navy, 14-3, Tuesday evening in its home season debut at Charles E. Smith Athletic Center in CWPA Southern Conference action. Freshman David Zenk (St. Louis, MO), junior Julian Price (Honolulu, HI) and sophomore John Jennings (Coral Gables, FL) each chipped in with a goal apiece to lead the Colonials offensively.
In the first quarter, GW received a goal each from Zenk, his team-leading 29th of the season, and Price as the Colonials trailed just 4-2 at the end of the period. The second quarter was low scoring for both teams as Navy scored two goals to counter GW's one, scored by Jennings, to take a 6-3 lead into halftime.
GW would struggle to produce on the offensive end in the second half, and Navy took full advantage, scoring four goals each in the third and fourth periods, respectively, to seal the victory.
Sophomore Chris Whittam (Hillsborough, CA) was solid in the cage for the Colonials recording 10 saves, including four in the second quarter.
The Colonials (6-10, 0-7 CWPA Southern) are back in action on Wednesday, Oct. 5, when they travel to Claremont, CA, to take on Claremont Mudd Scripps at 10:30 p.m. (EST). GW's California trip does not end there however, as it will compete in the Claremont Convergence Tournament over the weekend. GW faces Chapman (12:00 pm EST) and Cal Lutheran (11:00 pm EST) on Friday, Oct. 7, followed by match-ups with La Verne (12:30 pm EST) and Whittier (8:30 pm EST) on Saturday.
