Men's Water Polo Tips Iona, Falls to No. 18 Princeton
Colonials Win Non-League Contest, Fall to 1-4 in Southern Division Play
Oct. 24, 2010
PRINCETON, NJ - Freshman Nate Little and sophomore Cameron Illes amassed three goals and 20 saves, respectively, to help the George Washington men's water polo team to a split of its two games in Princeton, NJ, Saturday evening.
GW (7-15, 1-4 A-10) took an early 2-0 lead and maintained a cushion throughout for a 10-7 victory over CWPA Northern Division foe Iona. The Colonials led 5-2 after a quarter and 8-5 at the break en route to their seventh win of the season.
The Gaels keyed on freshman leading scorer Daniel Tyner, which opened goal-scoring chances for classmates Nate Little (three goals) and Paul Deasey (two) and sophomore Guy Helman (two), who totaled seven goals for the Colonials. Senior Peter Thomas and sophomores John Paul Bezerra and Adam Streeter also added goals and Illes stopped 14 shots in the victory.
In Saturday's late match, GW didn't score until the 7:22 mark of the third quarter and trailed No. 18 Princeton, 10-1, after 24 minutes en route to a 12-3 loss in the nationally ranked Tigers' pool. Streeter, Deasey and Tyner scored for GW, while Illes made six saves before giving way to sophomore Sean Joyce, who made one stop.
GW plays its final home contest of the season at Smith Center Pool this Wednesday at 7:00 pm against Johns Hopkins.
