Colonials Face Mercyhurst, Navy on Saturday
Nov. 1, 2013
BALTIMORE - The George Washington men's water polo team fell to CWPA Southern Division rival Johns Hopkins, 17-10, on Friday evening at the Blue Jays' Newton White Athletic Center Pool.
Senior Daniel Tyner scored a team-high three goals for the Colonials before fouling out in the third quarter. Sophomore Bogdan Petkovic added two goals, five steals and four ejections drawn while junior Brian Mojica also scored twice to go with three field blocks. Freshman goalie Sander Profaci recorded nine saves.
The Blue Jays (17-6, 3-4 Southern) led 4-1 after one quarter. The Colonials scored four times in the second but trailed, 9-5, at halftime en route to the 17-10 defeat.
"Hopkins is an extremely tough environment to play in," said Head Coach Scott Reed. "Offensively I thought we did a pretty good job. We were getting good opportunities to score, but we just couldn't keep pace with Hopkins."
GW (12-9, 3-4 Southern) concludes the regular season on Saturday with a pair of games in Annapolis, Md. The Colonials take on Mercyhurst at 9:30 a.m. before facing host Navy in Southern Division action at 1:30 p.m.
