Colonials Lose to No. 12 Princeton, 6-4
GW Fights Hard, but Comes Up Short Versus Nationally-Ranked Tigers
Oct. 17, 2004
WASHINGTON, DC - The GW men's water polo team (4-16, 1-7 CWPA Southern) pulled within one goal of No. 12 Princeton (16-4, 8-0 CWPA Southern) on two occasions in the second half, but couldn't overtake the Tigers as they defeated the Colonials, 6-4, on Sunday, Oct. 17 at the Smith Center Pool.
GW rallied from a 4-1 deficit in the second quarter to make the score 4-3 on a tally by sophomore John Hornberger with 5:17 left in the third period. After a goal by Princeton's Chris Kelsch 39 seconds later, Colonials' freshman John Jennings scored to get GW within one again, 5-4, with 51 seconds left to play in the quarter. Princeton's Michael Murray provided the winning margin, notching a goal with three seconds left in the third frame to close the game's scoring as neither team could put one in the cage in the final period.
The Colonials grabbed an early 1-0 lead at the 6:18 mark of the first quarter on Koenemann's tally, but the Tigers recorded four consecutive goals to claim a three-goal margin before GW's rally.
All-American John Stover led the Tigers with three goals and Peter Sabbatini made three saves in the cage.
The Colonials will compete at CWPA opponent Navy on Wednesday, Oct. 20 at 4:00 p.m.
