Sept. 18, 2012
WASHINGTON - The George Washington men's water polo team begins Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Southern Division play on Wednesday evening with a trip to Baltimore to take on Johns Hopkins. Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.
GW (5-6) is coming off a sixth-place finish at the CWPA North/South Invitational at Harvard last weekend. The Colonials defeated Iona, 15-6, but fell to No. 19 Brown and the host Crimson.
Junior Nate Little leads GW with 23 goals on the season, while sophomore Brian Mojica is tops with 17 assists and 30 points. Freshman Bogdan Petkovic has added a team-best 31 steals in the first 11 matches of his collegiate career.
Senior goalkeeper Cameron Illes has recorded 108 saves in 35 quarters, giving him 893 in his career, just 58 shy of the all-time program record (951).
Johns Hopkins (11-2) has won five straight matches following an undefeated weekend at the Navy Invitational, and the Blue Jays are ranked third in Division III while also receiving votes in the most recent national Top 20. Ross Schofiled leads Hopkins with 30 goals, 24 assists and 54 points on the season.
The Colonials defeated the Blue Jays twice in the 2011 regular season. Daniel Tyner netted a career-high nine goals in a 14-13 victory at the Charles E. Smith Center Pool on Sept. 24, while Ridvan Pehlivan (6) and Little (5) combined for 11 of GW's 15 goals in a 15-13 win in Baltimore on Oct. 19. Hopkins got its revenge in the Southern Division Championship, defeating GW, 16-11, in the opening contest of the tournament. Little scored four times in that match to lead the Colonials.
