Late Bucknell Run Sinks Women's Water Polo, 11-6
March 6, 2009
WASHINGTON, DC - The George Washington women's water polo team closed within 6-4 early in the fourth quarter, but Bucknell scored the final five goals of the game to knock off the Colonials, 11-6, in CWPA Southern Division action at Smith Center Pool Thursday night.
Sophomore goalkeeper Charlotte Schou matched a career high with 15 saves, her third consecutive game with double-digit saves, but it wasn't enough to help the Colonials snap a 17-game slide against the Bison.
GW (2-8, 0-3 CWPA Southern Division) was tied 1-1 after a quarter, trailed 4-2 at the break and 6-3 after three periods, but narrowed its deficit to two goals with 7:47 remaining. Bucknell (7-8, 1-1) responded with five unanswered goals over the next six minutes to pull away.
The Colonial begin a week-long trip to the West Coast next weekend at the Claremont Convergence in Claremont, CA. GW opens the four-game event with the host Athenas next Saturday, March 14, at 10:20 am PT.
