Men’s Water Polo: USA vs. Croatia in Riverside, CA – 06/09/17

The USA men’s senior national water polo team returned to the Riverside Aquatics Center at Riverside City College last night to host an exhibition game against Croatia.

Since we are a water polo family, we were there.

The last time we watched team USA play in Riverside was back in 2015 when the team took on Serbia. Team USA won that game 9-5.

Unfortunately, team USA lost this game against Croatia 10-12.

The Croatian men’s team is in California for three more exhibition games against team USA:

  • 06/11/17 at Stanford in Palo Alto (Tony Azevedo’s final game)
  • 06/13/17 at Oaks Christian High School in Thousand Oaks
  • 06/14/17 at Long Beach State

Here are some pictures of the action from last night.
