Croatia has advanced through to the semi-finals of the European Water Polo Championship after beating Georgia in the quarterfinals on Tuesday night in front of a packed Spaladium Arena in Split.

After winning Group B, Croatia had the luxury of three days rest and started tonight’s match strong racing out to a 4-0 lead. 

Georgia put up some resistance in the second quarter, restricting Croatia to two goals and scoring two themselves to go in at halftime 6-2 down. 

Croatia showed their dominance in the third quarter and stretched their lead to 12-3 to put the game out of the reach of the Georgians. The final quarter was routine for Ivica Tucak’s side and they would run out the winners 15-5.
