Colonials Sweep Two Game Saturday; Lose Twice on Sunday
Feb. 13, 2005
PRINCETON, NJ - The George Washington women's water polo team, ranked eighth in the CWPA Top 10 poll, started the 2005 campaign with two wins on Saturday, Feb. 12 on the first day of the Princeton Invitational. The Colonials defeated Villanova, 10-9, to start the day and followed that triumph with a 10-6 win against Marist, however, GW lost both of its contests on Sunday, Feb. 13 to finish the tournament 2-2.
In the opening match on Saturday against Villanova, the Wildcats scored with five seconds remaining to tie score at nine goals a piece. GW head coach Scott Reed called time out to set up a play, which resulted in a penalty shot opportunity for the Colonials with one second left and they converted on the penalty shot to earn the victory.
Sophomores Morgan Hooker and Jenna Burnett paced the Colonials with three goals each against Villanova. Junior Amy Heinemann recorded six saves in the cage to move into a tie with Lisa Greenfield for the top spot on GW's career saves chart with 388.
Heinemann became the career leader in saves with seven in GW's 10-6 triumph over Marist hours later. Freshman Soleil Roberts netted two goals in the win.
The Colonials hoped to carry the momentum of Saturday's victories over to Sunday, but they fell to Brown, 10-3, in their opening match. GW got three first-period goals against the Bears, but were shut out the rest of the way.
In the Colonials' final match of the competition, Burnett registered five goals, but it wasn't enough as GW came up on the short end of an 8-6 decision versus Wagner.
The Colonials will play four times during the three-day Bucknell Invitational on Feb.18-20. GW will compete against Bucknell on Friday, Wagner and Penn State Behrend on Saturday, and finish the competition against Princeton on Sunday.
