Women's Water Polo Bests No. 25 Marist
Colonials earned a split Saturday at the Princeton Invitational
PRINCETON, N.J. - Jacqueline Bywater had four goals and two assists Saturday to lead George Washington women's water polo to a 15-11 win over No. 25 Marist at the Princeton Invitational.
After a morning loss to No. 22 Princeton, the Colonials bounced back to knock off the Red Foxes at DeNunzio Pool and improve to 5-2 on the season.
GW 15, No. 25 Marist 11: The Colonials swung momentum with an impressive second quarter and kept it going to secure a quality victory.
GW trailed 4-3 before running off six straight goals. The Colonials held the Red Foxes scoreless for more than 10 minutes of game action during the run, which spanned the entire second quarter.
After Marist pulled within 11-9 late in the third quarter, GW's Jaleh Moaddeli scored the first goal of the fourth quarter and the Red Foxes never got any closer.
Katherine Moeller made seven saves in net to record the victory.
It was GW's first win in the series since 2005 after 11 straight losses.
No. 22 Princeton 14, GW 6: The Colonials matched the host Tigers early but ran out of steam in the second half.
GW took a 3-2 lead on Hallahan's goal with 2:33 left in the opening quarter and had it tied at 4 midway through the second period before Princeton pulled away. The Tigers limited the Colonials to two goals after halftime.
Hallahan and Bleiberg scored two goals apiece for GW with Maddy Johnson chipping in a goal and an assist. Heck netted the other score and nabbed a team-high three steals.
UP NEXT: GW closes the Princeton Invitational against No. 12 Wagner on Sunday morning at 8 a.m. The Colonials are home next Saturday, Feb. 24, for Senior Day against Princeton at 11 a.m.
