Oct. 6, 2015
WASHINGTON -- The George Washington men's water polo team plays host to CWPA Southern Division rival Navy on Wednesday evening in its final match of the year. Game time at the Charles E. Smith Center Pool is set for 8 p.m.
GW (3-13, 0-3 Southern) went 1-4 on its annual California trip last weekend, picking up a 10-8 victory over La Verne on Saturday at the Gary Troyer Memorial Tournament. Dowd scored a team-high 11 goals and added eight steals, while sophomore Pierce Deamer tallied 13 points (10g, 3a), four steals and seven ejections drawn and his classmate, Noah McKinnie Braun, totaled eight goals and six steals. In addition, freshman Brett Else recorded 13 steals and nine ejections drawn to go with three goals in the five games.
Deamer paces the Colonials with 39 goals, 22 assists and 61 points on the year, and he ranks second with 26 ejections drawn. Else leads the team with 30 steals and 31 ejections drawn to go with his 13 goals, and Braun has recorded a team-high nine field blocks along with 15 goals and 17 steals, ranking third on the team in both categories.
Dillon leads a quartet of GW goalkeepers with 66 saves, while freshman Matt Taylor is close behind with 60 saves and a team-best .583 save percentage.
Navy (6-5, 0-0 Southern) opens Southern Division play at Johns Hopkins on Wednesday at 4 p.m. before heading to Foggy Bottom for the nightcap. The Midshipmen, who are receiving votes in the most recent national poll, have not played since dropping all four games in their California trip Sept. 25-27, with all four losses coming against ranked opponents. Navy placed third at the 2014 CWPA Championship.
David Huber leads Navy with 31 goals and 34 points, while Carl Dowzicky has tallied 33 points on 18 goals and a team-high 15 assists while also pacing the Midshipmen with 15 steals. Beau Bayless has seen the majority of the team's minutes in the cage and boasts a .497 save percentage with 77 saves against 78 goals allowed.
GW dropped a pair of matches to Navy last season, including a 10-9 loss in Annapolis in the regular-season finale. Dillon made 22 saves across the two matches, including a career-high-tying 15 in the road contest. He has 36 saves in four career games against the Midshipmen.
