Colonials Split Doubleheader, Snap Six Game Skid
Oct. 5, 2006
RIVERSIDE, CA - The George Washington men's water polo team rebounded from a 10-8 loss at 20th-ranked California Baptist with a come-from-behind, 14-4, victory against Occidental at Lancer Aquatic Center on Thursday.
GW (7-8) snapped its six-game losing streak by overcoming an early 2-0 deficit against Occidental. Senior John Hornberger scored a game-high four goals during an 11-0 run which started in the second quarter and spanned until 5:05 remained in the contest. It was the first time the Colonials scored 10-or-more goals in a victory since defeating Iona, 13-6, at the Princeton Invitational on September 9.
Hornberger has scored 43 goals this season, eclipsing his previous single-season high of 42 set last fall. Junior John Jennings and freshman Alexander Price chipped in two goals apiece. Sophomores David Zenk, Gustavo Canto and Sergei Shev and rookies Nick Archambault, John-Claude Wright and Marshall Freedman each added one goal.
The Colonials opened the day with a difficult two-goal loss against the host Lancers. California Baptist outscored GW, 5-3, in the second half to pull away for the win. Hornberger and Zenk contributed hat tricks, while Archambault and Wright tallied one goal apiece.
GW begins play in the annual, two-day Claremont Convergence tomorrow. The Colonials open against 19th-ranked Redlands, the nation's top-ranked Division III team, at 1:30 pm EDT before taking on Whittier, ranked No. 7 in Division III, at 9:30 pm EDT.
