WPWL Women’s Intercontinental Tourn., Day 5: Australia-USA final; fifth berth up for grabs
Australia will play eight-time FINA World League champion United States of America for the gold medal at the FINA Women’s Water Polo Intercontinental Tournament at West Waves Aquatic Centre on Sunday. The Aussie Stingers won through with a comfortable 13-6 margin over China but USA turned from 7-4 ahead at halftime to shrug off a determined Canada 11-9.
China, the 2013 World League champion, will play for bronze with Canada. It is irrelevant in the overall scheme of things as all four teams have qualified for the Super Final in Shanghai next month.
