Oct. 21, 2002
GROVE CITY, PA - George Washington men's water polo broke an eight-match losing streak with an overtime victory over Slippery Rock, 15-12, as the Colonials went 2-2 on at the Inter-Regional Competition this weekend, finishing sixth in the field of 12.
The Colonials (4-12) began the weekend on a high note, winning an overtime battle with Slippery Rock, 15-12, balancing a strong offensive showing with a solid defensive stand.
GW dropped their next match versus Johns Hopkins in a match that came down to the final quarter, when the Jays made an offensive push to edge the Colonials, 15-13.
GW took their frustrations out on Salem International, their next opponent, lighting up the scoreboard with a season-high 18 goals and win 18-12.
The Colonials were unable to top Washington Jefferson College in their final match of the weekend, as the fatigue of three previous matches led to lapses on the defensive end. GW scored 11 goals to bring their weekend total to 60, but allowed WJC to net 14, and take the match 14-11.
