LONDON (AP) — Maica Garcia scored with her head underwater with 27 seconds to play as Spain survived a late rally to reach its first women’s Olympic water polo semifinal with a 9-7 win over Britain on Sunday.
Garcia squeezed the no-look, behind-the-back shot past Britain goalie Robyn Nicholls to secure the victory.
Britain scored two early goals for a 2-1 lead before Spain scored five unanswered to seize control of the match at the Water Polo Arena.
Francesca Painter-Snell’s third goal for the Olympic hosts cut Spain’s lead to 8-7 with 2:20 to play before Garcia’s clutch score defused the comeback.
Spain will play Hungary in the semifinals on Tuesday with the winner facing either the United States or Australia in the final.
