Women's Water Polo Takes Two of Four Over the Weekend
Canon Totals 16 Goals
March 10, 2003
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The GW Women's Water Polo team tallied two victories against Villanova, 10-3 and Salem International, 14-5 on Saturday, March 8. The wins sandwiched a tough loss to No. 16 Princeton, 14-9, in which the Colonials played well but just ran out of steam. GW then lost a heartbreaker on Sunday, March 9 to Bucknell, 11-10. By going 2-2 over the weekend, the team's record now stands at 4-4.
In GW's first game against Villanova, junior Kira Canon (Easthampton, MA/Williston Northampton) scored four goals and senior Ashley Pyka (El Toro, CA/El Toro) added three to lead the Colonials to the 10-3 victory. Freshman Amy Heinemen (N. Miami Beach, FL/Krop) stifled the Wildcasts by making eight saves.
The next Saturday game was against No. 16 Princeton and the Colonials had the game tied up going into the fourth quarter, but ran out of gas as the Princeton offense went on the attack. Coach Scott Reed was very pleased with the effort, but GW came up short in the end, 14-9.
Later Saturday evening, the Colonials got back in the win column with a victory over Salem International, 14-5. Canon again led GW with four goals and Heinem was outstanding in goal making 10 saves.
The Colonials returned to the pool on Sunday against Bucknell a little short-handed with some players not able to go due to injury or sickness. The team turned in a fine performance only to lose on a goal with :24 seconds left which gave Bucknell the 11-10 victory. The Colonials produced 27 shots but were unable to capitalize on enough of them to put Bucknell away, which set the stage for the late Bison goal.
The Colonials will return to the pool on Friday, March 14 when they travel to Riverside, CA to play in the Lancer Invite against Pomona-Pitzer, Arizona State, Cal State Bakersfield, and the University of Redlands.
