Men's Water Polo Wraps Regular Season With Pair of Losses
Colonials Will Look to Repeat 2007 Postseason Run at Southern Championships in Two Weeks
Oct. 25, 2008
PRINCETON, NJ - The George Washington men's water polo team concluded its regular season with losses to CWPA Southern Division foe No. 15 Princeton, 17-7, and No. 18 Brown, 13-8, at Princeton's DeNunzio Pool Saturday afternoon.
With the regular season complete, GW (7-19, 1-7 CWPA Southern Division) now awaits seeding for the CWPA Southern Division Championship, to be held at Princeton's DeNunzio Pool Nov. 7-9. Last year the Colonials finished third at the Southern Championship en route to a third-place finish at the Eastern Championship, the program's highest finish at the event.
GW scored the first two goals of the game, but No. 15 Princeton (12-8, 6-1 CWPA Southern Division) responded with 10 of the contest's next 12 goals to take a 10-4 advantage at the half. The Tigers outscored the Colonials 7-3 in the second half to pull away for the 17-7 victory. Junior John-Claude Wright had a hat trick, followed by two goals from junior Rick Rogers and one goal apiece from redshirt senior Nick Eddy and junior Nick Archambault. Freshman goalkeeper Alex Sotolongo had five saves.
In Saturday's late game and regular-season finale, GW outscored No. 18 Brown 4-1 in the fourth quarter, but couldn't overcome a 12-4 deficit entering the period in a 13-8 loss to the Bears. Six of the Colonials' eight goals came on man-up opportunities. Wright once again tallied three goals, followed by two from sophomore Nick Yeager and one each from Eddy and freshmen Cray Rogers and Dan Alessandri. Sotolongo finished with 12 saves.
