Greece are well in the running for a medal in water polo at the World Aquatics Championships after defeating Montenegro 12-7 in the quarterfinals. The Greek defense proved to be to hard for Montenegro to crack and with an exceptional display in the second quarter, the Ethniki took a 5-2 lead which increased to 6-2 at the beginning of the third quarter. Greece, who were clearly the better side in the 32 minutes of play, cruised passed Montenegro and clinched their place in the last four of the tournament.

Greece will face the hosts Hungary, who defeated Russia in the quarterfinals, with hopes of earning a spot in the final to contest the World championship title. The semi-final fixture will take place on Thursday at 9:30 PM Greek time (2:30 PM EST).
