BRIDGEPORT, Pa. — The 2021 Mid-Atlantic Water Polo Conference (MAWPC)-East Region schedule adds seven games for the weekend of Saturday-Sunday, February 27-28, as No. 9-ranked the United States Naval Academy welcomes No. 10 Bucknell University, George Washington University and La Salle University to Scott Natatorium in Annapolis, Md., for seven games.
The contests make up for missed games during the regular season between the Midshipmen, Bison and Colonials, while MAWPC-East Region, Northern Section competitor La Salle picks up meetings against Navy, Bucknell and George Washington prior to a MAWPC-East, Northern Section, regular season concluding game on Tuesday, March 2 at Fordham University in the Bronx, N.Y.
Action commences on Saturday, February 27, at 10:00 a.m. as Navy and George Washington clash for the second time following an 8-2 season-opening victory by the Midshipmen at The St. James Aquatic Center in Springfield, Va., on Friday, February 12.
Bucknell will play in back-to-back games as the Bison face La Salle (1:00 p.m.) and George Washington (4:00 p.m.) prior to the host Midshipmen returning to the water for a 6:30 p.m. game against the Explorers of La Salle.
On Sunday, February 28, Navy and Bucknell meet for the third time in a week as the two programs square-off at 9:00 a..m. Last week on Sunday, February 21, at Scott Natatorium, Bucknell downed Navy by a 12-11 score in overtime, but the Midshipmen torpedoed the Bison’s hopes of a sweep by corralling the herd by a 15-5 count.
George Washington concludes the seven-game event on February 28 as the Colonials tangle with La Salle (11:30 a.m.) and Bucknell (2:30 p.m.).
