Australia’s dreams of retaining its FINA World Cup women’s water polo crown in Christchurch August 22 were dashed when a very alert America came out fighting from the start. In an incredible game, the world and world league champion USA suffocated the Aussie Stingers in the first half, winning the first two quarters 3-0 and finishing 6-3 ahead. It wasn’t until Nicola Zagame sparked the Stingers into action at the start of the third quarter that a glimmer of hope remained in the camp. However, at 6-2 heading into the final quarter the writing was on the wall and head coach Greg McFadden was left lamenting what could have been.
