Hooker Tallies Six Goals on the Day
April 4, 2005
LEWISBURG, PA - Sophomore Morgan Hooker scored six times in the GW women's water polo team's (10-10, 3-2 CWPA Southern) two losses on the first day of the ECAC Championship on Saturday, April 2. Hooker notched three scores in the Colonials' opening-round, 19-4, loss versus top-seeded Hartwick and contributed three more in a 9-5 loss to Bucknell.
Hooker now has 32 goals on the season to lead the Colonials.
Against Hartwick, GW fell behind early and couldn't recover. Harwick scored the first four goals of the contest before Hooker's first score got the Colonials on the board with 1:09 to play in the first quarter. Hartwick exploded in the second period outscoring the Colonials 7-2 to take a commanding 11-3 advantage at the half. Hartwick registered seven consecutive goals in the third and fourth quarters before a score by freshman Kathryn Shehan made the count 18-4 with 1:59 left in the match. Hartwick's Aliria Munoz added a goal with 47 ticks left on the clock to produce the final score.
In GW's second game, versus the host Bison, Hooker led the way again and opened the game's scoring with a goal at 5:34 of the first period to give the Colonials the early lead. Bucknell responded with two tallies to claim a one-goal margin after the opening quarter. The second stanza proved to be the stumbling block for GW again as they were outscored 3-0 and trailed 5-1 at the half. After another Bucknell goal, senior captain Kendra Shanley found the back of the cage to bring GW within four, 6-2, with 2:17 to go in the third quarter. The Bison quickly reclaimed their five-goal margin, scoring 47 seconds later to go up 7-2. GW outscored Bucknell 3-2 in the final period, but the Bison claimed the 9-5 win.
Shehan added a goal against Bucknell and finished with two scores on the day.
GW will play its final match of the tournament on Sunday, April 3 at 9:00 a.m.
