Men's Water Polo Set for New York City Doubleheader
GW visits Wagner and Fordham on Saturday
The Colonials (12-11, 5-3 MAWPC) begin the day at Wagner with a 1 p.m. start before moving on to Fordham at 7 p.m. They currently sit third in the conference standings, just behind second-place Fordham (14-8, 4-2) and ahead of fourth-place Wagner (11-15, 4-4).
LAST TIME OUT: GW enjoyed a break last weekend after a particularly busy stretch. The Colonials haven’t played since Oct. 21 when they beat Navy, 16-14, on Senior Day at Charles E. Smith Center Pool.
IN FOCUS: GW is averaging 12.9 goals through 23 games. Joe Behun tallied his first goal of the season in the Oct. 20 win over Johns Hopkins, becoming the 14th different Colonial to find the net this fall. All 14 scorers have recorded at least one assist, as well.
SCOUTING WAGNER: The Seahawks took down Fordham, 15-14, in overtime on Wednesday night in a key battle for MAWPC positioning. Ciaran Wolohan provided the game-winning score.
GW won the first meeting with Wagner, 19-12, on Sept. 30 in Foggy Bottom, led by a season-high six goals from Atakan Destici.
SCOUTING FORDHAM: The Rams opened a grueling week with Wednesday's narrow loss to Wagner. They'll play four games between Saturday and Sunday to round out their conference slate.
Fordham grabbed an 8-7 road win over GW on Sept. 24. The Colonials scored the final two goals but had their rally fall short. Massimiliano Mirarchi scored six goals to power the Rams.
COMING UP: GW has an opportunity this weekend to improve its seeding for the MAWPC Championship, which runs from Nov. 17-19 at Navy’s Lejeune Hall in Annapolis, Md. The winner of the conference tournament earns an NCAA berth and a matchup with the Northeast Water Polo Conference champion.
