Olympics 2012, Men's Water Polo Results: Stanford's Tony Avezedo Paces United States Past Britain 13-7

The Bay Area is well represented in both men's and women's water polo at the 2012 Olympic games in London. Luckily for the men, they came through big time on Thursday against Britain.

Team captain and Stanford graduate Tony Azevedo netted four goals, three in the first quarter alone, pacing the U.S. men's water polo team past Great Britain by the score of 13-7.

Moraga native and Stanford graduate Peter Varella scored a goal, as did Cal grad John Mann. Ryan Bailey added another three goals for the Americans, who were in control the entire match, owning a 7-0 lead at one point.

With the victory the U.S. remained undefeated, sitting atop of Group B with six points. They remain one point ahead of Serbia, the gold medal-favorites.

As for Great Britain, who qualified as the host nation, they currently own four Olympic water polo titles. Unfortunately the last once came 1920 in Antwerp, Belgium.
