ANNAPOLIS, Md. - The Bucknell men's water polo team completed play at the first set of Southern Division League games on Sunday, September 21. The Bison dropped a 17-6 decision to 13th-ranked Princeton before falling 10-7 to George Washington.
Against the nationally ranked Tigers, BU trailed 7-3 at the break and could not find any more offense for the second half. Princeton outscored the Orange and Blue 10-3 in the second for the 17-6 final.
Later in the day, Bucknell took on George Washington for its fourth game in two days. The contest was the Colonials first of the weekend, and the rest proved valuable as GW held on for the three-goal win. Both teams had the offense rolling in the first half and the squads entered halftime with a 7-6 score in George Washington's favor.
Bucknell tied the contest at 7-7 in the third quarter, but the Colonials shutout the Bison in the fourth for the 10-7 win.
