Women's Water Polo Posts 1-2 Record at Princeton Invitational
Colonials Top Harvard, Fall to Massachusetts and Brown
WASHINGTON, DC (Feb. 19) - George Washington's women's water polo team opened their 2002 season against some of the toughest competition in the Collegiate Water Polo Association at the Princeton Invitational this past weekend and posted a 1-2 record.
On Saturday, Feb. 16, the Colonials couldn't overcome an offensive outburst from Massachusetts, as the Minutewomen took a 6-1 after two quarters. GW was never able to get comfortable on offense, and fell to Massachusetts 12-5. Sophomore Kira Canon led the Colonials with two goals for the match and fellow junior Kiersten Johnson notched three steals in the losing effort.
In their second match of the day versus defending Eastern Division champion Brown, GW made a late fourth quarter charge after trailing 5-3 heading into the final period. The Colonial scored two goals to pull within one, 6-5 with 20 seconds on the clock. GW called a time out to set up a play, but weren't able to convert it for the score and the tie. Canon and sophomore Vanessa Fravel scored two goals apiece to lead the Colonials.
On Sunday, Feb. 17, GW clamped down on defense, holding Harvard to one goal per quarter as senior goalkeeper Lisa Greenfield had a solid game with 16 blocks. On offense, the Colonials scored four goals in the third quarter to break a 2-2 tie, behind two goals by Fravel. Canon added another goal in the fourth quarter to secure GW's first victory of the season, 7-4.
The Colonials return to action when they travel to Lewisburg, PA to compete in the Bucknell Invitational, facing Slippery Rock and Bucknell on Saturday, Feb. 23 at 4:00 p.m and 8:00 p.m., respectively. GW then faces Slippery Rock again on Sunday, Feb. 24, in a 9:00 am match.
