LEWISBURG, PA - Less than a day after earning its first win in dramatic fashion, the George Washington women's water polo team lost to Villanova in the final minute in its final game of the Bucknell Invitational on Sunday.
GW fell victim to a go-ahead Villanova goal with 30 seconds remaining and missed with a shot as time expired in a 7-6 loss in its fourth and final game of the Invitational. The Colonials enjoyed a 4-3 lead after three quarters, but were outscored 4-2 over the final eight minutes. Sophomore Amy Moren and rookie Bernadette Karandy each scored two goals to pace GW and junior Julie Jacoby made 11 saves.
In its first game of the day, GW held two-goal advantages after both the first and second quarters, but was outscored 7-1 over the final 16 minutes in a 10-6 loss to Marist. The Colonials allowed four unanswered goals in the third quarter and had turnovers on six consecutive possessions in the fourth in the defeat. Jacoby matched a season-high with 13 saves.
GW, which went 3-of-15 on its man-up opportunities on Sunday, falls to 1-7 overall. The Colonials will host Maryland in a CWPA contest at Smith Center Pool on Thursday, March 1, at 7:00 pm.
