WP Juniors 2011 (M), Day 8: Serbia beats Greece in overtime, will play Spain for Championship

FINA World Junior Water Polo Championships

VOLOS, Greece (September 3) - Serbia will meet Spain on Sunday evening in the championship game following their narrow defeat of Greece in an overtime period of the semi finals. Spain would knock off Australia, their margin also just one goal, advancing their team into the final match. 

Serbia defeated hometown favorite Greece in a tight match watched by nearly 2000 fans who were heartbroken to see several last second assaults deflected by Serb goalkeeper Dimitride RISTICEVIC. Team captain Angelos VLACHOPOULOS landed the first Greek goal followed 90 seconds later by a second goal from Kyriakos PONTIKEAS. RISTICEVIC deflected a Greek missile that seemed certain to tie the game in the final second of the first half.

Emmanouil SOLANAKIS would put Greece ahead when his missile landed at 4:23 in the fourth quarter, but Serbia would tie the game for the fourth time with a goal from Aleska SAPONDIC at 3:18. Both teams would execute drives that would test the skills of the opposing goal keepers; Stefanos GALANOPOULOS would be cheered and Serbian RISTICEVIC would be booed for protecting their nets so effectively in the last minutes of the game. Regulation time would expire with each team having the same number of goals, the third game today that happened. 

In the first three minute extra time period Milos MILICIC would slip the ball into the net at 2:02. Despite an aggressive campaign by the Greek squad, they weren't able to find an opportunity to slip the ball past RISTICEVIC. The game would end 6-5 in favor of Serbia.   

In the earlier semi final, Spain squeaked by Australia, 6-5 thanks to three goals from Spain's captain Oscar CARRILIO GEMAR. Adria CARABI GASOL would land Spain's tying and the go ahead goals early in the second quarter, the teams would break at half with his team leading by one goal, 3-4. Spain would widen it's margin in the third period after two goals netted by skipper CARRILIO GEMAR. George FORD of Australia would deliver the only goal by either team at 4:44 in the final quarter but neither he or his teammates could find the back of the net to catch the Spanish. The juniors from Spain earned the silver medal in the 1993 championships falling to Italy in the championship match and they were the bronze medallists in 2005 when they beat the Italian juniors by a score of 6-5.

Australia will face off against Greece for the game that will decide the third and fourth places in the tournament. In earlier semi finals, Italy defeated Montenegro 11-10 and will advance to play Croatia in the final to determine places 5 and 6 in Sunday's match. Hungary fell to Croatia, 5-6, will meet the team from Montenegro to decide places 7 and 8 in their next game.

The coaches of the 20 teams will vote on the most valuable player and also the most valuable goalkeeper of the tournament, the results and the presentation to the top Juniors will be made on Sunday evening.
