Colonials Down Siena, Fall to Wagner
Feb. 23, 2014
CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The George Washington women's water polo team split a pair of games on the final day of the CWPA MAAC Crossover on Sunday afternoon at Harvard's Blodgett Pool.
GW (4-8) defeated Siena, 12-6, in the first game of the day. Leading by a narrow 3-2 margin after one period, the Colonials used a 4-2 second quarter to take a 7-4 advantage at halftime, then broke the game open with another four goals in the third while shutting out the Saints in the period to go up 11-4.
Senior Megan Brolley led the Colonials with three goals and four steals in the game while classmates Rachael Bentley and Erin Dickson, sophomore Hannah Cox and freshman Maddy Johnson each scored twice and sophomore Caroline Sandri accounted for GW's final goal. Senior Allison Littlejohn also had four steals.
"After the first quarter we were really able to get our defense settled and get our offense moving," said head coach Scott Reed. "It was a great team effort; everyone was able to contribute."
In the final game of the weekend, GW fell to Wagner, 17-8. The Colonials scored the first three goals of the game and led 4-2 after the first quarter, but the Seahawks responded with a 7-1 second to take a 9-5 halftime lead, then outscored GW, 8-3, over the final 16 minutes.
Brolley notched her second hat trick of the day while Cox again scored twice to lead the Colonials. Sesana stopped six shots in the cage.
The Colonials return to action on Saturday, when they host CWPA Southern Division rival Brown at 6 p.m. at the Charles E. Smith Center Pool.
