GW Men's Water Polo's Deamer Leads Colonials Against Fordham
Colonials Drop Season Finale, Take 10th at CWPA Championship
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Sophomore Pierce Deamer matched his career high with five goals, but the George Washington men's water polo team fell to Fordham, 13-8, in the 2015 season finale at the CWPA Championship hosted by MIT.
The Colonials (8-22) outscored Fordham (20-15), 4-3, in the second half, but could not overcome the Rams' 10 first-half goals in the ninth-place contest.
Deamer, a CWPA All-Southern Division First Team member, led the Colonials with five goals and four steals while drawing a team-best five ejections. A trio of Deamer's scores came in power-play situations.
The Colonials played a tight first quarter, trailing Fordham, 4-3, at the close of the period on Deamer's first two goals and sophomore Noah McKinnie Braun's marker.
Deamer notched his third score in the second quarter, but Fordham pulled away to take a 10-4 lead at the half.
The squads exchanged goals in the third stanza, as Deamer posted another man-up score and a shot by Montgomery also found the back of the net. The Colonials then outscored Fordham, 2-1, in the fourth on goals from Deamer and sophomore Duke Becker, but the Rams' lead was too much to overcome as the Buff and Blue fell, 13-8.
Seniors Connor Dillon and Jonah Dowd closed their careers on Sunday. Dillon tallied three saves on the day and wraps his career with 624 stops, ranking fourth all-time for GW. Dowd graduates with 80 goals, 59 assists and 122 steals in his career.
