Mens Water Polo
Team USA 8, China 4
Date of competition: Sunday, August 10, 2008
Team captain and three-time Olympian Tony Azevedo scored five goals, Merrill Moses stopped 11 shots and the U.S. men's water polo team opened the Olympics preliminary round with an 8-4 victory over host China on Sunday. Azevedo, a Stanford grad, scored three goals in the first half, added two more after the break and finished the opening round with more goals than anyone else in the 12-team field. "Tony is just a spectacular player," Moses said. "Be prepared for him to score a lot of goals against every team." Stanford grad Layne Beaubien had two goals for the Americans.
