Colonials Fall to Chapman, 9-5

Oct. 8, 2004

ORANGE COUNTY, CA - The Colonials' men's water polo team (3-11, 1-5 CWPA Southern) only scored on two of their nine man-up chances as they fell to Chapman, 9-5, on Thursday, Oct. 7 in a match at Orange County High School.

"We didn't convert on our man-up advantages and you're not going to beat anybody only scoring two goals on nine man-up chances," GW coach Scott Reed said. "It really hurt us."

Senior co-captain Nick Koenemann paced the Colonials with two goals. He now has 26 scores on the season.

Each team notched two goals in the first quarter, but the Chapman outscored GW, 2-0, in the second frame to take a 4-2 advantage at the intermission.

GW couldn't generate much offense in the second half as Chapman outscored the Colonials 5-3 the rest of the way to earn the victory. GW struggled shooting the ball in the match, taking a total of 21 shots, but only netting five goals.

Junior goalkeeper Tom Mills finished with six saves in the cage for the Colonials.

GW will take on Occidental and La Verne on Friday, Oct.8 at the Claremont Convergence Tournament
