American women are headed to Olympic water polo quarters

 

The U.S. Olympic women's water polo team capped a 3-0 run through group play at the 2016 Olympics with an 11-6 win over Hungary on Saturday. The win sets up a quarterfinal matchup with host Brazil on Monday as the competition moves to the Olympic Aquatics Stadium.

"That's what we need to be ready for," American coach Adam Krikorian said. “I'd be shocked if teams don't come out and play physical with us. Everyone's looking for an edge and trying to find a way to gain an advantage."

Stanford senior Maggie Steffens scored four goals and Ashleigh Johnson posted nine saves in net.
