Water Polo Finishes Sixth at ECAC Championships

Lewisburg, PA- The Brown women's water polo team finished in sixth place after falling 14-10 to Wagner in the final day of the ECAC Championships hosted at Bucknell this weekend.

The Bears got off to a slow start this afternoon as Wagner jumped out to a 2-1 lead after the first quarter and went on to outscore Brown 4-2 in the second to gain a 6-3 lead heading into halftime.

Wagner stayed hot in the third and tallied four goals to Brown's two to extend its lead to 10-5, but the Bears made a late run in the fourth quarter with five goals, but it just wasn't. Wagner posted four goals in the fourth to earn the 14-10 win.

Leading Brown's attack today was Kate Woods with six goals, followed by Joanna Wohlmuth with three and Katharine Booher with one. Sarah Shin combined for two saves in the cage.

The Bears are back in action on March 12 when the squad heads to Hartwick to challenge both Utica and Hartwick.
