Women's Water Polo Shelled by Maryland, 16-7
Early Deficit Proves Too Much for Colonials
April 16, 2010
COLLEGE PARK, MD - Seven different players scored, but the George Washington women's water polo team dug itself an early hole and couldn't climb out in a 16-7 loss at local CWPA Southern Division rival Maryland Friday evening.
After pushing Maryland to overtime 17 days ago, GW failed to keep pace from the start. Sophomore Monica Hanson tied the game at 1-1, but the Terrapins rolled off six consecutive goals and led 7-1 after a quarter. The Colonials' defense settled and allowed just two goals in the second period, but the attack managed one goal to trail 9-2 at halftime.
GW was outscored by just a goal in each of the remaining quarters (3-2, 4-3), but its first-quarter deficit proved too much.
Seniors Marissa Stamler, Emily Chereson and Bernadette Karandy, junior Melissa Sesana and sophomores Allison Peotter and Megan Walker also added goals for GW (7-13, 0-5 CWPA Southern Division). Junior goalkeeper Charlotte Schou made eight saves before giving way to sophomore Antonia Raris, who made one stop.
Simone Lewis scored three straight goals to give UMd a 4-1 edge and finished with a game-high four goals. Maryland (13-12, 2-2) got 16 goals from 10 different players.
GW returns to College Park to face CWPA Varsity No. 7 Michigan Saturday at 3:00 pm. The Colonials wrap their regular-season and home schedule on Senior Day Sunday against Princeton at 12:00 pm.
