GW Women's Water Polo Drops Regular-Season Finale at No. 9 Princeton
Colonials Will Be Fifth Seed at CWPA Southern Division Championship
April 6, 2014
WASHINGTON - The George Washington women's water polo team dropped its regular-season finale to No. 9 Princeton by a score of 16-6 on Sunday afternoon at the Tigers' DeNunzio Pool.
GW (11-13, 2-3 Southern) will be seeded fifth for next weekend's CWPA Southern Division Championship.
Senior Katherine Berry led the Colonials with three goals against Princeton on Sunday, while senior Erin Dickson scored twice and senior Rachael Bentley tallied three assists. Junior goalkeeper Chandler Vilander made six saves in the cage.
Princeton (26-1, 5-0 Southern) scored the only goal of the first quarter and led 6-3 at halftime. The Colonials stayed close for much of the third, trailing just 7-4 in the middle of the period, but the ninth-ranked Tigers outscored GW, 9-2, the rest of the way to pull away for the 16-6 win.
"It was a good game for the most part," said Head Coach Scott Reed. "Our defense did a really good job keeping Princeton in check and we were able to get some good goals against a goalie (Ashleigh Johnson) who started for the Junior Olympic national team."
The Colonials will open the Southern Division Championship on Saturday at 10 a.m. against top-seeded Princeton and will also take on fourth-seeded Harvard, the tournament's host, at 2:30 p.m.
