    导出博客文章RIO DE JANEIRO -- It got physical, very physical, and thats just fine with the
    U.S. womens water polo team.Maggie Steffens scored four times, and the United
    States clawed its way back to the Olympic final with a rugged 14-10 victory over
    Hungary on Wednesday.Winners of 21 in a row, including its five games in Rio de
    Janeiro by a combined score of 61-27, the U.S. has met every challenge as the
    favorite to become the first country to win consecutive gold medals since the
    tournament was added to the Olympics in 2000.Poked and prodded by Hungary, the
    U.S. pushed back with its relentless attack.We kind of say bring it on, Steffens
    said. We want to beat teams at their best game. Hungarys a very physical team,
    thats what makes them great.Next up is Italy, which advanced to Fridays final
    with a 12-9 victory over Russia. Italy also is a perfect 5-0 in Rio, winning by
    a combined score of 51-31.Its going to be a heck of a battle, U.S. coach Adam
    Krikorian said. Were going to have our hands full, no doubt.With the U.S. paying
    close attention to Barbara Bujka in the middle, captain Rita Keszthelyi scored
    four times as Hungary became the first country to reach double digits against
    the U.S. since Spain got 10 goals in a loss to the Americans on June 9.But
    Hungary was unable to slow down the athletic U.S. in the second half.The U.S. is
    the strongest and they have the most and biggest, strongest players in all the
    Olympic Games, Hungary coach Attila Biro said.After Bujka scored to get Hungary
    within one at the beginning of the second quarter, the United States responded
    with four of the next five goals. Maddie Musselman scored on two power plays and
    Kaleigh Gilchrist made it 8-4 with 3:06 left in the first half.Hungary made
    another charge in the third quarter, but Steffens had two goals and Kiley
    Neushul also scored in an impressive burst that helped put the game away.We knew
    it would be a physical, tough, strong game, U.S. center Kami Craig said. Just
    happy to go out there and kind of grind through some of that physicality and try
    to play as clean of water polo as we could.Italy won the gold medal in 2004, but
    slipped to sixth in Beijing and finished seventh in London four years ago. But
    its headed back to the final after Arianna Garibotti scored five goals and
    Giulia Gorlero made nine saves in the countrys second victory over Russia in
    Rio.The final is a dream, Italy coach Fabio Conti said. Every player, every
    athlete, every coach that arrive in Olympic Games want to arrive to this dream.
    Now we dont want to stop (this) dream.Roberta Bianconi and Chiari Tabani added
    two goals apiece for Italy, which, like the U.S., is trying to become the first
    two-time winner of the Olympic tournament.Its going to be a physical battle,
    Bianconi said through a translator, so we need to be very, very focused and do
    exactly what we have worked on our whole season.Evgeniya Ivanova and Ekaterina
    Lisunova each scored two goals for Russia, which was a surprise 12-10 winner
    over Spain in the quarterfinals.Ivanova and Olga Gorbunova scored the first two
    goals of the game, but Italy gradually took over. Garibottis long-range goal
    gave Italy a 5-4 lead with 1:37 left in the first half, and it never trailed
    again.After Russia pulled within two with 3:17 left, Garibotti scored a
    power-play goal to make it 10-7. Bianconi added a penalty shot with 1:41
    remaining.Garibotti scored seven times in Italys first four games.Sometimes when
    the moment is dangerous she can do anything, Conti said.---Jay Cohen can be
