Oct. 18, 2008

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – The MIT water polo team won their second game of the weekend, defeating Queens College, 14-6, in the Zesiger Pool Saturday afternoon. The Engineers beat Connecticut College, 16-3, last night and improve to 6-9 on the season.

Tech led, 5-1, after the first period and 8-2 at halftime and would never trail in the game. Devin Lewis led the Engineers in scoring with four goals. Leading scorer Mike Smith-Bronstein had three goals. John Preis scored twice and five other Engineers would contribute to the attack. Freshman goalkeeper Columbus Leonard had seven saves in net for MIT.

The Engineers will take on nationally-ranked St. Francis (N.Y.) tomorrow afternoon at 12:00 p.m. in their final tune-up before next weekend’s Division III Eastern Championship at Johns Hopkins University.
