A poor start cost Great Britain’s men’s water polo team as they lost 13-7 to the United States in their latest match at the London 2012 Olympics on Thursday night.
The home side were 7-0 down at the Water Polo Arena and despite a good recovery, thanks in part to two goals from Lancaster Water Polo Club’s Ciaran James, the US proved too strong.
It was a third defeat in three for GB who also have Lancaster’s Glen Robinson and Alex Parsonage in their squad,
They play their penultimate Group B game against Hungary on Saturday at 6.20pm.
GB’s women, featuring Carnforth’s Alex Rutlidge and Morecambe’s Beckie Kershaw, play their final Group B game against Italy on Friday night at 6.20pm.
They are also still looking for their first victory after defeats to Russia and Australia.
