Women’s water polo – quarterfinals

Hungary’s women’s water polo team suffered a shocking 6-4 defeat at the hands of Canada in the quarter finals on Monday. The result is a huge disappointment for the host team as their hopes for a medal was blown away with a poor offensive performance by them. The interesting thing is that Canada barely had a few shots in the second half, so Hungary defensed really well, but there were a lot of problems on offense. Canada’s hero, Monika Eggens, however, delivered a superb performance, scoring 5 of her team’s 6 goals.

Italy – Russia 9:8 (3:0, 1:4, 3:3, 2:1)
United States – Australia 7:5 (0:0, 3:0, 2:2, 2:3)
Canada – Hungary 6:4 (1:0, 3:4, 1:0, 1:0)
Spain – Greece 14:12 (2:3, 2:2, 2:2, 4:3 – penalties: 4:2)
