PRINCETON, N.J. -- The No. 16 George Washington men’s water polo team split a pair of matches with 13th-ranked Princeton and La Salle on Sunday, falling 15-8 to the Tigers before bouncing back with a 16-8 win over the Explorers.

Freshman Andrew Mavis led the Colonials with six goals on the day, tallying three in each game, while junior Pierce Deamer had four. GW, which was coming off a 10-9 victory over league rival and ninth-ranked Bucknell on Saturday, now owns a 9-5 record on the season.

After falling to the No. 13 Tigers in the morning, GW bounced back with a strong performance against La Salle in the afternoon. Ten Colonials scored in the game, including three goals from Mavis and two each from Deamer, junior Joe Behun and sophomores Brett Else and Zach Slaughter.

GW jumped out to a 7-1 lead in the first quarter and La Salle never threatened to make it close as the Colonials allowed just two first half goals. Slaughter led the team with four steals while Sander Profaci, Austin Pyrch and Matt Taylor combined for eight saves in the cage.

The Colonials are off this coming weekend before returning to action on Oct. 20, when they start a five-game West Coast trip at Pacific.
