The Men’s Water Polo team emerged victorious from a scrimmage against Metro Masters on Sunday, 9/21/14 with a score of 8-7. The game was another important stepping stone in BU’s preparations for the CWPA New England Division season.
Scoring contributions from junior Josh McDonough, medical student Curtis Hon, and senior Drew Mutafyan, all with 2 goals apiece, led the Terriers through a strong performance. Junior Kevin Chu, with BU’s lone goal in the 4th quarter, sealed the win after a tightly contested second half.
After the standard 4-quarter scrimmage, 2 additional quarters of exhibition were played, with all members of the Terriers’ squad receiving valuable game time and experience. Freshman Blake Hallisey and sophomore William Pearson each scored 1 goal during these two exhibition quarters.
Boston University’s first competitive games of the season come next weekend at the CWPA New England tournament being hosted by Middlebury College in Middlebury, VT. The Terriers will take on the hosts Middlebury College, local rivals Boston College, and defending New England champions Dartmouth College on Saturday, 9/27. On Sunday, BU will face Yale University to round out the weekend.
