PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Freshman Jake Wyatt (Corona Del Mar, Calif.) notched five goals to lift the Brown men's water polo team to a season-high goal total and largest margin of victory of the season in an 18-4 win over Connecticut College in the Katherine Moran Coleman Aquatics Center on Friday. The Bears jump to 10-6 overall and 5-2 in CWPA Northern Division play, while the Camels fall to 1-11 and 0-4 in division competition.

 

Wyatt led a crew of eight Bears who found the back of the net, including four for freshman Warren Smith (Dallas, Texas) and three for classmate Luke Irwin (Thousand Oaks, Calif.). Junior Andrew Brown (Western Springs, Ill.) and Luke Weiser (Los Alamitos, Calif.) split the goalkeeping duties and combined for six saves.

 

A first half shutout found Brown with a comfortable 11-0 lead and a stingy defensive effort by the home squad held the Camels to just a pair of goals in each of the last two quarters. Connecticut's four goals marks the fewest goals allowed by Brown since topping Washington & Jefferson, 13-3, on Sep. 8.

 

The Bears are primed for the Northern Division doubleheader tomorrow when they host MIT at 12 p.m. and No. 16 St. Francis Brooklyn at 7 p.m.
