Seniors Propel Men's Water Polo Past Gannon for Fifth at Southerns
GW's Four Seniors Total Nine Goals, Cray Rogers Nets Career-High Five in Finale
Nov. 8, 2009
LEWISBURG, PA - The George Washington men's water polo team's seniors totaled nine goals and sophomore Cray Rogers matched a career-high five goals as the fifth-seeded Colonials rolled over No. 7 seed Gannon, 14-4, in the fifth-place game of the CWPA Southern Division Championship Sunday.
GW finishes its season 9-22 overall and places fifth at Southerns for the third time in the past four seasons. The Colonials finished third and advanced to the CWPA Eastern Championship in 2007.
Senior John-Claude Wright finished with six points on three goals and three assists in his final game. His 203 career goals rank fifth all-time in program history.
As it did in Saturday's victory over Washington & Jefferson, GW jumped ahead 3-0 after a quarter and increased its lead every period to cruise to victory. The Colonials led 5-1 at halftime and 9-3 after 24 minutes of play en route to the 10-goal margin.
No. 5 GW 14, No. 7 Gannon 4
GW -- 3 - 2 - 4 - 5 -- 14
GAN -- 0 - 1 - 2 - 1 -- 4
