VILLANOVA, PA - Sophomore Emily Chereson scored a game-high four goals to help the George Washington women's water polo team to a season-opening 14-7 victory at Villanova Friday night.

Senior goalkeeper Julie Jacoby made eight saves before giving way to freshman Charlotte Schou late in the game. Schou finished with two saves in her collegiate debut.

GW (1-0) broke open a 5-3 halftime lead with a six-goal third period to lead 11-5 after 24 minutes of play. Villanova scored no more than two goals in any period, while the Colonials racked up nine tallies in the second half for the 14-7 victory.
