Oct. 18, 2015
ANNAPOLIS, Md. -- The George Washington men's water polo team dropped a 14-7 decision at Navy on Sunday morning at Scott Natatorium.
Sophomore Pierce Deamer scored a team-high four goals and added two ejections drawn, a steal and a field block, while freshman Brett Else recorded four steals and drew two ejections. Sophomore Quentin Montgomery had a team-high three ejections drawn to go with a goal and a steal.
Navy took a 3-2 lead after one quarter and extended its advantage to 6-3 at halftime. A 5-1 third period for the Midshipmen made it 11-4. GW tallied three of the final four goals of the game as part of an even fourth frame to account for the 14-7 final score.
