Australia’s women’s water polo team defeated Greece by one goal in a close battle at the quarter finals of the World Aquatics Championships in Japan on Monday.
The Ord Minnett “Aussie Stingers” beat the Greek team 9-8 on Monday, pushing the team into the semi-final against Spain, which is underway in Fukuoka from July 14 to 30.
Australia’s captain Zoe Arancini said in an interview after the win: “It was hugely intense.”
Stingers coach Paul Oberman applauded his team in the defeat against Greece.
“They [Greece] are a very good team, they are going to score goals,” he said, but the Stingers “defence was working really well” remaining composed “in attack as well.”
“But we still kept going and we ground it out.”
The Australian Stingers will play their semi-final on Wednesday night.
