PROVIDENCE, R.I. - The George Washington men's water polo team dropped a 16-6 decision to 19th-ranked Brown on Saturday afternoon on the second day of the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Championship at the Bears' Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center.
GW will face 10th-seeded MIT for seventh place on Sunday at 11:40 a.m.
Ninth-seeded GW (15-15) got off to a good start, as junior Ridvan Pehlivan scored the first goal of the game 1:03 in, and the Colonials led, 3-2, with 3:52 to go in the first after a pair of goals by senior Daniel Tyner, but fifth-seeded Brown scored the final two goals of the period to take the lead for good, 4-3.
The teams traded tallies to start the second quarter, as senior Nate Little scored on a power play at the 6:47 mark to pull GW within one, 5-4, but the Bears scored four straight goals to end the half with a 9-4 advantage.
Brown extended its run to eight in a row to start the third before junior Matthew Williams tallied for GW at the 1:25 mark. Brown led, 14-5, after three and a 2-1 fourth quarter accounted for the 16-6 final score.
Tyner and Pehlivan each scored twice for the Colonials, and Tyner added an assist and three ejections drawn. Sophomore Bogdan Petkovic recorded a team-high four steals to go with a field block and an assist. Sophomore goalkeeper Connor Dillon stopped three shots in the first three quarters, while freshman Sander Profaci had a save and a steal in the fourth.
