PRINCETON, N.J. -- The 17th-ranked Navy water polo team bounced back from its quarterfinal loss to rout MIT, 21-9, in the consolation round of the CWPA Eastern Championship.

The Midshipmen improve to 23-5 with the victory and will play in the fifth-place match on Sunday against Brown at 11:30 AM (ET).

Navy led just 2-1 after one quarter but outscored the Engineers, 6-3, in the second quarter for an 8-4 advantage at the break.

The Midshipmen would squelch any chance of an MIT comeback with an 8-4 third-quarter scoring burst to take a 16-8 lead before settling in for the 21-9 final.

Thomas Patterson led Navy with five goals, while Paul Pedrotty added four tallies. Erich Schwamb, Tyler Thein and Jesse Walker added a pair of goals. Six other players scored one goal each.

Anthony Gutierrez made five saves in goal for the Midshipmen.

Navy looks for its 24th win of the season in Sunday's fifth-place game against Brown. Navy has won at least 24 games in four of the last six seasons, dating back to 2006.
