Andersen Paces Women’s Water Polo Past George Washington, 10-8
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yoshi Andersen exploded for six goals to pace the Harvard women's water polo team past George Washington, 10-8, in the Crimson's first Collegiate Water Polo Association Southern Division game of the season.
Andersen put Harvard on the board early in the first with two goals as the Crimson took a slim, 3-2, advantage. Harvard's momentum continued in the second outscoring George Washington, 2-1, to take a two-goal lead at the half.
The Crimson and Colonials played to an even 3-3 tie in the third stanza. George Washington opened the scoring in the final eight minutes with two back-to-back goals to bring the score within one. Shayna Price responded immediately as the senior netted her second of the game to the Crimson a comfortable lead it would hold on to.
Harvard returns to the pool deck for a midweek match up at Ivy League foe Brown Wednesday April 2 at 7:30 p.m.
