GW Men's Water Polo Falls to Johns Hopkins, 17-11
Else Notches Hat Trick to Pace Colonials
Oct. 16, 2015
BALTIMORE -- The George Washington men's water polo team fell to CWPA Southern Division rival Johns Hopkins, 17-11, on Friday evening at the Blue Jays' Newton White Athletic Center.
Freshman Brett Else led the Colonials with a career-high five points on his second career hat trick as well as two assists. Senior Jonah Dowd, sophomore Quentin Montgomery and freshman Zach Slaughter also scored twice, with Dowd and Slaughter adding three steals apiece. Senior goalkeeper Connor Dillon recorded 10 saves in the cage.
GW (3-16, 0-5 Southern) and Hopkins were tied, 2-2, after the first quarter, and back-to-back goals by Montgomery in a span of 37 seconds gave the Colonials a 4-3 lead with 3:04 remaining in the second before the Blue Jays tallied three in a row to take a 6-4 halftime advantage.
Johns Hopkins then broke the game open with a 7-2 third period for a 13-6 lead. GW then outscored the Blue Jays, 5-4, in the fourth quarter to account for the 17-11 final margin.
The Colonials return to action on Sunday, when they visit Southern Division rival Navy at 11 a.m.
