China overwhelms US women in water polo

Macedonia claims bronze medal with 10-7 win over American men

The United States women's water polo team fell behind early and could never recover, dropping a 14-4 decision to host China in the championship match of the World University Games in Shenzhen, China on Monday.

Chinese goalkeeper Jun Yang stopped 15 shots in 17 attempts for an incredible .882 save percentage. Ying Wang made two saves in four tries in the final period, giving China an .810 save percentage overall.

The Americans, who finished with the silver medal, simply could not get the ball into the net. Sacred Heart Prep grads Pallavi Menon, KK Clark and Adriana Vogt were held scoreless in a combined 10 shot attempts, while Stanford sophomore Alyssa Lo was 0-for-2.

Leah Robertson and Nadia Dan each scored twice for the U.S.

Stanford grad Janson Wigo scored twice for the U.S. men, who fell to the former Yugoslavia Republic of Macedonia, 10-7, in the bronze medal contest on Tuesday.
