ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The No. 20 George Washington men's squash team had two players push their opponents to five sets, but ultimately fell at No. 14 Navy, 9-0, on Wednesday evening at the Halsey Field House International Squash Courts.

GW (3-4) received stout efforts from both No. 1 Andres de Frutos and No. 4 Reid Breck, but both players fell in five sets to their respective opponents.

At No. 1, de Frutos raced out to a 2-0 lead over James Kacergis, the 60th-ranked player in the College Squash Association (CSA) Individual Rankings, but could not hold on as Karcegis rallied for a 6-11, 9-11, 11-3, 11-9, 11-5 victory.

At No. 3, Breck trailed Colin Barry, 2-0, but stormed back on the strength of 12-10 and 11-7 wins to force a decisive fifth set. In the fifth, Barry regained control en route to the 11-8, 11-3, 10-12, 7-11, 11-4 victory.

The Colonials return to action this weekend, travelling to Massachusetts for a trio of weekend matches against No. 9 Western Ontario (Friday, 7 p.m., South Hadley, Mass.), No. 12 Bates (Saturday, 1 p.m., Amherst, Mass.) and No. 22 Amherst (Sunday, 9 a.m., Amherst, Mass.).
