SALEM, WV - The GW men's water polo team (5-17, 1-8 CWPA Southern) rattled off seven consecutive goals to turn a 5-2 deficit into a 9-5 lead and went on to defeat Gannon, 11-7, on Friday, Oct. 22.
Trailing 5-2 in the first minute of the third quarter, GW notched the last seven goals of the period and outscored Gannon 7-1 in the stanza to take a 9-6 advantage heading into the fourth period. The Colonials recorded two more scores in the final quarter and held Gannon to just one to produce the final score.
