Johns Hopkins' Late Run Sinks Men's Water Polo, 10-4
Cray Rogers Scores Two Goals, Colonials Drop Fourth Straight
Oct. 9, 2009
BALTIMORE, MD - Sophomore Cray Rogers scored just over two minutes into the second half to cut the Colonials' deficit to one, but Johns Hopkins rolled off four unanswered goals and held on to defeat the George Washington men's water polo team, 10-4, in CWPA Southern Division action Friday night.
A day after equaling his career high with six goals, senior John-Claude Wright was limited to only one goal as GW (7-16, 0-4) fell to fifth place in the CWPA Southern Division standings behind JHU (8-10, 1-2).
Rogers, who finished with a team-high two goals, and Wright each tallied in the first quarter to help the Colonials rebound from an early two-goal hole and even the contest at 2-2 after eight minutes.
The Blue Jays again went ahead by two, 4-2, in the second quarter and maintained the cushion into halftime before Rogers sliced the margin in half at the 5:45 mark of the third quarter. Peter Sauerhoff capped his hat trick with back-to-back goals during a four-goal run which put JHU ahead 8-3.
Freshman Guy Helman ended the run with a goal with one second remaining in the period, but that's as close as GW would get as Hopkins added a pair of fourth-quarter markers for the 10-4 final margin.
Wright pulled even with Nick Eddy ('08) for eighth on GW's all-time goals list with 187.
GW plays its second contest in newly renovated Smith Center Pool next Saturday, Oct. 17, against Southern Division foe Princeton at 11:00 am.
