Water Polo Wraps Home Slate With 11-8 Loss to Hopkins
Senior Peter Thomas Tallies Goal in Final Home Contest
Oct. 27, 2010
WASHINGTON, DC - Freshman Nate Little led the George Washington water polo team with four goals and an assist and senior Peter Thomas added a goal in his final match at Smith Center Pool as the Colonials suffered an 11-8 loss to Johns Hopkins in CWPA Southern Division, East Region action Wednesday evening.
GW erased an early 3-0 deficit to pull even with Hopkins, 3-3, after a quarter and made up an early second-quarter goal to stay tied at halftime at 4-4.
The Blue Jays again started strong with back-to-back goals in the opening 49 seconds of the second half to assume a 6-4 advantage.
Little scored the Colonials' next three, slicing the deficit to a single goal each time, over the next eight minutes, including his team-leading fourth goal of the contest just 42 seconds into the fourth quarter to make it 8-7.
However, GW failed to tie the score each time and JHU netted three goals in a span of 2:23 midway through the final stanza to take an 11-7 lead. Thomas netted his goal with 1:34 remaining to produce the 11-8 final margin.
Sophomore goalkeeper Cameron Illes posted nine saves and team-high four steals in the loss. Freshman Daniel Tyner added two goals, an assist, two steals and two ejections drawn, while classmate Paul Deasey chipped in the squad's other goal and team-high three ejections drawn.
The two teams will meet again this Saturday as the Colonials complete CWPA Southern Division, East Region play with two contests in Annapolis, MD. GW will take on host No. 15 Navy at 11:00 am, before facing Hopkins at the neutral site at 5:00 pm.
