April 10, 2005
WASHINGTON, DC - The GW women's water polo team (11-13, 4-4 CWPA Southern) lost its final home game of the 2005 season, 9-8, to division rival Bucknell on Sunday, April 10 at the Charles E. Smith Athletics Center Pool.
The Colonials rallied from an 8-5 deficit to tie the match at 8-8, but Bucknell's Meg Blitzer notched the game-winner for the Bison with one minute to go in the final period.
GW took an early 2-0 lead in the match on consecutive goals by sophomore Morgan Hooker and the Colonials led 3-2 after the first period. In the second stanza, the Bison made their move, outscoring GW, 4-1, to claim a 6-4 lead at the intermission.
Sophomore Jenna Burnett found the back of the cage with 5:25 to go in the third period to bring GW within one, but goals by Blitzer and Elizabeth Jensen gave the Bison an 8-5 margin with 3:42 left in the frame. Hooker registered her final score of the contest at the 1:51 mark to make the count 8-6 after three quarters. Senior captain Kendra Shanley opened the fourth period with a goal to pull GW within one and freshman Sarah Stimson scored her 10th goal of the year to tie match with 2:24 to go, setting the stage for Blitzer's game-winner.
Hooker paced GW with four goals in the game and freshman goalie Julie Jacoby made a career-high 14 saves, including five in the fourth quarter. It was the third-highest save total for a GW keeper this season.
Blitzer finished with six goals and Mandy Bynum made eight saves in the cage for Bucknell.
The Colonials will compete in the CWPA Southern Championship in Lewisburg, PA on April 23-24.
