PRINCETON, N.J. – Santa Clara men's water polo was unable to keep the momentum going from its season-opening victory at the Princeton Invitational.

The Broncos (1-2) were knocked off by Georgetown, 15-7, and by Fordham, 12-9, on Saturday.

Adam Low scored twice for Santa Clara, which tied the game at 6-all early in the third quarter but then it was all George Washington (5-1).

Mavis had two of the team's four goals in the third period. The Colonials tallied five goals in less than a 3-minute span from the end of the third into the fourth to build a 14-6 lead.

Santa Clara trailed 6-3 late in the first half but Jake Landrum and Shane Hughes each scored in the final 43 seconds of the second quarter and Arvin Bahia tied it just more than a minute into the third.
