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.
Henry Fox led Brown with six goals, including five of his team's first six markers. James McNamara scored four times for the Bears, and Jedd Thayer also notched a hat trick.
