Men's Water Polo Rallies Past Harvard, 9-6
Colonials Shut Out Crimson in Pivotal Third Quarter
Oct. 19, 2007
ANNAPOLIS, MD - Trailing by one at halftime, the George Washington men's water polo team scored five unanswered goals in the third quarter en route to a 9-6 victory against Harvard at Navy's Lejeune Pool Friday afternoon.
GW (8-10) started slow against Harvard, which received a vote in this week's national collegiate Top 20 poll, and trailed, 4-3, at intermission. However, the Colonials regrouped to shut out the Crimson, 5-0, in the third period to coast to the win. GW also defeated Harvard, 17-11, to capture seventh place at the ECAC Championship on Sept. 30.
The trio of senior John Jennings, junior David Zenk and sophomore Nick Archambault led the offense, netting two goals apiece. Senior goalkeeper Chris Whittam, who entered Friday's game ranked 10th in the nation in saves, made 12 stops.
GW returns to Annapolis, MD, Saturday for a tripleheader. The Colonials open with No. 11 Navy at 10:00 am, followed by No. 15 Air Force at 3:00 pm, and Brown at 7:00 pm. GW hosts a doubleheader on Sunday with No. 16 Bucknell and No. 20 Princeton visiting Smith Center at 9:30 am and 2:00 pm, respectively.
