Oct. 19, 2005
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington University men's water polo team fell to 16th-ranked Johns Hopkins, 11-9, Wednesday evening in its regular season finale at the Charles E. Smith Athletic Center pool in CWPA Southern Conference play. Junior John Hornberger (Houston, TX) and freshman David Zenk (St. Louis, MO) each scored two goals to pace the Colonials.
With the loss, GW falls to 10-14 overall, while Johns Hopkins, also ranked No. 1 nationally in Division III, improves to 18-5 overall with the triumph.
In a very competitive game that was left undecided until the final quarter, both teams notched three goals each in the first period. Both squads continued to match each other in the second quarter and the game was deadlocked at 5-5 heading into intermission.
Both teams once again traded scores in the third period with three goals each and the game remained even at 8-8 going into the fourth quarter. The Blue Jays, however, proved to just have enough in the final frame as they outscored GW, 3-1, to earn the victory.
GW is back in action when it travels to Annapolis, MD, for the CWPA Southern Championship, Oct. 28-30. The top four teams at the championship qualify for the CWPA Eastern Championship in November, held in Cambridge, MA.
