Heinemann Leads Outstanding Defensive Effort
March 26, 2003
LEWISBURG, PA - The Colonials allowed just three goals over three matches and recorded their first shutout in the program's history, as the women's water polo team went a perfect 3-0 at the Bucknell Invite.
Goalkeeper Amy Heinemann had her best weekend series at GW (10-8), averaging eight saves over the three matches and setting a career-high mark with 12 stops versus Michigan State.
Versus MSU the Colonials led from the beginning, scoring three first-half goals and limiting the Spartans to just two goals for the match. GW held a 3-2 advantage heading into the final quarter but exploded for five scores to make the final tally 8-2.
Heinemann and Kira Canon shined versus Gannon in their next match, as the freshman keeper recorded eight saves and Canon scored five times in a 12-1 blowout. GU's lone goal came in the first period as the Colonials held them scoreless for the remainder of the match.
The Colonials accomplished a program first in their match against Sienna, shutting out their opponent for the first time in team history. Heinemann recorded four saves, and the Colonials shutdown Sienna's offense in an outstanding team defensive effort. GW fired on all cylinders on the other side of the pool, netting 13 goals, including eight first period scores to run away with their 10th victory of the season. Vanessa Fravel and Kendra Shanley notched three goals apiece to lead the Colonials.
