The USA women's junior national water polo team advanced to the semifinals of the FINA Women's Junior World Championships, beating Hungary, 12-10, in Friday's quarterfinal match.
Rachal Fattal scored four goals to lead the Americans, who meets the winner of a later game between Greece and Great Britain on Saturday.
The U.S. took a 12-8 lead into the final period and held on. Monica Vavic added three goals and Stanford junior Ashley Grossman also scored for the Americans.
"Our girls came ready for a battle today," USA coach Dan Klatt said. "We set the tone early and finished."
