Men's Water Polo Drops 10-6 Decision to St. Francis Brooklyn in CWPA Semifinals
Release:   11/23/2013

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Bucknell men’s water polo team was attempting to advance to the title game of the CWPA Championship Saturday, but lost by a 10-6 score to defending champion St. Francis Brooklyn in a semifinal rematch of last year’s championship game. The Terriers scored the first six goals in the contest and the Bison could draw no closer than four goals the rest of the way.

Bucknell (14-10) did not score its first goal until Stefan Aleksic netted the first of his team-high two scores midway through the second quarter. By that time No. 13 St. Francis had scored six goals, five of which came in the first period.

The Bison narrowed their deficit to 6-2, but the Terriers extended their lead back to six goals at both 9-3 and 10-4 in the second half.

Jack Else, Alex Nowlin, RJ Moore and Mike Kimble joined Aleksic in the scoring column with one goal apiece.

Bucknell, which is ranked 20th nationally, will play for third-place in the 12-team field Sunday at 2:30 p.m. against the loser of Saturday evening’s semifinal between Navy and Princeton. The Bison are guaranteed to finish in the top four at the CWPA Championship for the fourth time in the last five years.
