Colonials allow a combined eight goals in two wins.
Oct. 23, 2004
SALEM, WV - Defense ruled the day as the GW men's water polo team (7-17, 2-8) won both its matches on Saturday, Oct. 23. The Colonials gave up eight total goals on their way to a 7-3 triumph against Salem International and a 6-5 victory versus Slippery Rock. The two victories extended the Colonials' season-best winning streak to three games.
"We had a really sound day defensively," GW Head Coach Scott Reed said. "I was very pleased, and our offense stepped up and played well when it had to."
In its first contest of the day, the Colonials shut down a Salem offense that scored 20 goals in its previous outing versus Johns Hopkins. GW started quickly, taking a 3-0 advantage after the first period and the Colonials owned a 4-0 margin at the half. Salem finally got on the scoreboard a minute into the third quarter, but GW cruised the rest of the way for the four-goal triumph.
Against Slippery Rock, GW again grabbed the early lead. The Colonials outscored The Rock, 4-1, in the first period and carried a 6-3 edge into the final period. Slippery Rock scored twice in the last frame to produce the final margin.
The Colonials will compete at the CWPA Southern Championship on Oct. 29-31, hosted by Princeton University. Seeding for the event is expected to be announced on Monday, Oct. 25.
