Men's Water Polo Edged By Johns Hopkins, 9-8
Late Charge by Colonials Falls Short
Oct. 9, 2002
WASHINGTON, DC - The Colonials dropped a closely contested match versus the visiting Johns Hopkins Blue Jays, 9-8 at Smith Center for their eighth-straight loss.
GW (2-10, 0-4 CWPA) took an early lead in the first quarter behind goals by sophomore Srdan Radnic and junior Pat Dodge, to put the Blue Jays in a 2-0 hole. JHU battled back, scoring three unanswered goals to take a 3-2 lead at the end of the quarter.
After trading goals to open the second quarter, GW took the lead 5-4 off three-straight scores by Dodge. JHU responded with a pair of goals of their own to retake the lead, but a late score before half evened the match, 6-6.
The Blue Jays defense clamped down on the Colonials in the third quarter, holding the team scoreless, while notching two goals of their own to take an 8-6 lead into the final period. After an early JHU goal, GW responded with two scores of their own, to narrow the lead to one with 2:32 left in the match. Despite some key saves by freshman keeper Tom Mills, the Colonials were unable to tie the match in the closing seconds.
Mills posted a solid match, notching seven blocks in fourteen minutes of play, and limiting the Blue Jays to three second half scores. Dodge continued his potent scoring on the season, recording five goals for the match.
GW returns to action October 18-19, when they compete in inter-regional competition in Grove City, PA.
