Oct. 16, 2004
ANNAPOLIS, MD - The GW men's water polo team (4-15, 1-6 CWPA Southern) lost its fourth straight match, falling to CWPA rival Salem International (9-7) on Friday, Oct. 15 by the score of 10-8 at McDonough Hall.
Senior Nick Koenemann led the way once again for GW, scoring three times in the contest to increase his team-leading goals total to 34. Sophomore John Hornberger also contributed two tallies in the match for the Colonials.
GW started strong, notching the first two goals of the game, but the Tigers roared back with three consecutive tallies. GW added another goal in the period to tie the match at three after the opening quarter.
Both squads increased their defensive intensity in the second quarter, as the teams combined for just three goals in the period. Salem International got the better of GW, outscoring the Colonials, 2-1, in the frame to take 5-4 edge at the half.
A back-and-forth third stanza ended with the Tigers scoring on a shot from their own end of the pool to extend their margin to two at the start of the fourth frame.
The Colonials had a chance to cut the lead to 9-8 in the final period, but Salem International stopped GW on a scoring chance right in front of the cage and then put the game away with a goal on the ensuing counterattack.
The Colonials will host No. 12 Princeton in their final home match of the season on Sunday, Oct. 17 at 4:00 p.m. at the Smith Center Pool.
