Aussie women's water polo team down China
08:10 AEST Sun Jun 3 2012

The Australian women's water polo team scored a comeback 8-7 victory over host nation China to set up a gold medal match with the US in the World Super Finals in Changshu.

The Aussie Stingers will play the Americans on Sunday night (9pm AEST) and will be looking for three finals wins this year over the US after beating them in deciders at the Pan Pacs and last month's London Olympic Test event.

China, who won the silver medal at last year's FINA World Championships, got off to a flyer in the semi-final against Australia.

The home side led 2-0 after the first quarter and stretched it to 4-0 in the second period before Australia fought back to 4-3 at halftime with a double from captain Kate Gynther and one goal from youngster Zoe Arancini.

Another strike from Gynther and goals to Bronwen Knox and Glencora Ralph locked the game up at 6-6 at the final break before the skipper nailed her fourth and Holly Lincoln-Smith joined the party to give Australia eight for the game.

Beijing Olympian Knox, who overcame a minor elbow injury to play against China, said defence was the cornerstone of the Greg McFadden coached side's fight back.

"We definitely had a slow start which was really disappointing but I think the team just regathered and was set on defence being the first and foremost of our thoughts," Knox said.

"We've played the USA a lot over the last five months or so and these games can go either way but we've had it over the top of them the last few big games and hopefully we can keep that up."
