Colonials wrap weekend with loss to No. 12 Wagner
PRINCETON, N.J. - George Washington women’s water polo finished its weekend at the Princeton Invitational with a 13-6 loss to No. 12 Wagner on Sunday morning.
Coming off a win over No. 25 Marist, the Colonials had a chance to take down another ranked foe but fell to the defending MAAC champion Seahawks at DeNunzio Pool.
GW (5-3) pulled within 4-3 on Dara Bleiberg’s goal in the opening minute of the second quarter before Wagner scored four straight goals to finish the half and the first two after halftime. The Seahawks’ lead reached 10-3 on Kristy Donkin’s goal midway through the third quarter.
Bleiberg paced the Colonials with three goals. The freshman from California also helped the attack by drawing a team-high four ejections.
Despite the setback, GW closed the Princeton Invitational at 2-2 with both losses coming to ranked opponents.
