GW Men's Water Polo Places Sixth at Southerns
Colonials Fall to Johns Hopkins, 9-7
Nov. 10, 2013
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The George Washington men's water polo team put together a strong second half but was unable to overcome a five-goal halftime deficit in a 9-7 loss to Johns Hopkins in the fifth-place game at the CWPA Southern Division Championship on Sunday afternoon at Navy's Lejeune Hall.
With its sixth-place finish in the tournament, GW (14-13) was unable to secure one of the Southern Division's five automatic berths to the upcoming CWPA Championship. However, the Colonials are in the hunt for one of the four at-large bids in the 12-team tournament, which will be held Nov. 22-24 at Brown University.
GW trailed by just one, 3-2, after the first quarter, but Hopkins topped the Colonials, 4-0, in the second to take a 7-2 halftime lead. GW outscored the Blue Jays, 5-2, in the second half to close the gap to two goals but could not complete the comeback.
"We had a good start to the first period, but the second quarter really unraveled for us," said Head Coach Scott Reed. "Hopkins really put the defensive pressure on us and we were unable to put anything together. The third quarter was absolutely fantastic on our part - we made a lot of adjustments, we were attacking aggressively and got the offense going again, but it was just a little too much to overcome."
GW will learn its CWPA Championship fate early this week.
John Hopkins 9, GW 7
GW - 2-0-4-1--7
JHU - 3-4-2-0--9
GW Goals: Wrobel 2, Mojica 1, Dowd 1, Petkovic 1, Pehlivan 1, Little 1
