Dutch water polo players reached the semi-finals of the World Cup in Hungary on Tuesday. The team of national coach Evangelos Dodisis was too strong for Greece in the quarter-finals with a 12-7 (3-1, 3-2, 3-3, 3-1).
This is the first time since 2015 that women’s water polo has competed in the semi-finals of the World Cup.
Orange still trailed in the opening stage, but was already 3-1 ahead after the first quarter. In another context, the Netherlands has always kept the strike margin two or three times. The lead has been increased in the final stage. Only in the third quarter (3-3) was there a balance.
Lola Mulhouse, only seventeen years old, was the star: she scored four goals. Vivian Cevinic and Bent Rouge were twice as effective. Kitty Justra, Sabrina van der Sloot, Brigitte Slicking and Maxine Shab each scored a goal.
Ranger Laura Aarts was also in great shape. You saved some important balls in the final stage, so Orange’s progress stayed the same.
The opponent in the semi-finals is Australia or Hungary. Those nations will play each other on Tuesday evening. The semi-final match will take place on Thursday at 9 pm. The final takes place on Saturday 2 July, also at 9 PM.
