CLAREMONT, CA - The GW men's water polo squad (4-14, 1-5 CWPA Southern) lost its final two matches at the 12th annual Claremont Convergence Tournament on Saturday, Oct. 9. The Colonials fell to No. 20 Redlands, 6-3, and lost by the score of 13-6 to Whittier.
Against Redlands, GW fell behind 1-0 in the first quarter, but the Colonials answered with a goal of their own to tie the score, 1-1, at the half. The Bulldogs took control of the match in the third stanza, scoring four times and tacking on another goal in the fourth quarter to clinch a 6-3 triumph.
The Colonials played solid defense for most the match, but turned the ball over 20 times. Junior Tom Mills made seven saves in the cage for the Colonials.
GW increased its offensive output in its second game of the day, tallying six goals against Whittier, but it couldn't overcome a 3-0 first-quarter deficit. The Poets increased their margin to four, 6-2, at the intermission before outscoring the Colonials 4-0 in third period to take a 10-2 advantage.
In the final quarter GW scored four times, but it wasn't enough as Whittier added three more tallies to produce the final score.
