LEWISBURG, Pa. - The fifth-seeded George Washington women's water polo team dropped a pair of matches in bracket play at the Southern Division Championship on Saturday at Bucknell's Kinney Natatorium. The Colonials fell to top seed and 14th-ranked Princeton, 11-8, in the first game of the day before falling to the fourth-seeded host Bison, 17-8.
GW (9-14) will take on No. 6 seed Mercyhurst on Sunday at 9 a.m. in the fifth-place game.
The Colonials scored the first goal of the game against Princeton as senior Megan Walker found the back of the cage on a backhand shot. But the Tigers answered with five unanswered to take a 5-1 halftime lead.

In the second game of the day, Bucknell jumped out to a 7-1 lead, and GW was never able to recover, trailing 11-4 at halftime and 16-6 after three quarters before falling 17-8.
