PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Junior Rachael Bentley tallied seven points, but the fourth-seeded George Washington women's water polo team fell to third-seeded Harvard, 15-11, in the third-place game at the Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) Southern Division Championship on Sunday morning at Brown University's Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center.
Harvard (16-14) took control of the game with a 5-1 first quarter. The teams played evenly in the second, each scoring three goals, to make it 8-4 at halftime before the Crimson outscored the Colonials, 4-2, in the third to take a six-goal advantage. GW (14-14) rallied with a five-goal fourth period, but it was not enough in the 15-11 loss.
Bentley's seven points came on five goals and two assists, while junior Allison Littlejohn also scored twice and junior Megan Brolley finished with three points on a goal and two helpers. Sophomore goalkeeper Chandler Vilander finished with seven saves in the cage.
The Colonials return to action on Saturday, when they host VMI in their regular-season finale at the Charles E. Smith Center Pool. Prior to the contest, GW will honor seniors Allison Peotter and Jessie Hurd in a Senior Day ceremony.
