U.S. water polo team disqualified for splashing


rio A hard fought battle between the US and Spanish Olympic water polo teams was cut short by disqualification this afternoon.

The US was forced to forfeit after having too many players ejected for splashing the opposing team.

“Splashing is a really serious offense—it hurts the other team’s feelings and is super mean,” said Stubhill sports correspondent Chuckie Finster. “It is a red card offense, and during this match the USA splashed too much and the game needed to stop because the Spanish players were crying, which altered the carefully-measured volume of water in the pool.”

After repeat offenses, the US had too many players ejected due to repeated splashing violations and were forced into time out for the duration of the game, resulting in a forfeit.
