Oct. 18, 2003
WASHINGTON, D.C. - George Washington won their opening match versus Salem International in the first round of the Collegiate Water Polo Inter-Regional Competition at Princeton University, 11-9 with senior Pat Dodge scoring five goals to lead the Colonials.
GW (6-7) won despite a shaky first half, allowing Salem to take a 6-3 lead into the break. The Colonials would rally in the second half, executing on both offense and defense, holding Salem to just three second half scores while converting eight goals of their own to seize the 11-9 win.
Dodge led all GW scorers with five goals, while Nicholas Koenemann added four scores. Goalkeeper Chris Blick had a solid outing between the pipes, recording nine blocks in the winning effort.
The Colonials face Mercyhurst College in their second round match on Saturday, October 18, at 4:40 pm.
