Olympic Water Polo Schedule: Final Day For Women's Group Play


The final day of group play on the women's side happens on Friday and there is a lot at stake in the final games in group play. The United States take on China and need to win to have a shot to win Group A, but they will need to have Spain lose to Hungary or make up the four goal differential difference if Spain wins.

The winner of Group A will get to take on Great Britain in the quarterfinals which is almost a sure win since they are winless and have been outscored by 14 goals. In Group B it comes down to Russia vs. Australia with the winner taking the top spot in Group B, but if they tie Russia will win the group since they have a plus-11 goal differential over Australia.
