Oct. 18, 2008
LEWISBURG, PA - The George Washington men's water polo team was solid defensively, but struggled on the offensive end in losses to CWPA rival Bucknell, 9-4, and Gannon, 7-6, Saturday at Bucknell's Kinney Natatorium.
GW (7-16, 1-5 CWPA Southern Division) trailed Bucknell (11-10, 3-2), 4-0, midway through the second quarter, but seniors Nick Eddy and Connor Lynagh scored goals inside the final two minutes of the half to pull within 5-2 at the intermission. The Bison controlled the third quarter, scoring three goals to assume an 8-2 edge after 24 minutes of play. Eddy and junior Nick Archambault tallied goals in the fourth quarter for the final 9-4 margin. Freshman goalkeeper Alex Sotolongo had five saves.
In Saturday's late match, GW and Gannon (9-4) remained deadlocked at the end of the first (1-1), second (3-3) and third quarters (4-4) and were tied, 6-6, with 45 seconds remaining when the Golden Knights were awarded a five-meter penalty shot, which they converted for the decisive tally.
Eddy once again led the attack with three goals, followed by freshman Cray Rogers' two goals and one from sophomore Nick Yeager. Sotolongo finished with four saves.
