TOKYO (AP) — Filip Filipovic scored three times to lead Serbia to a 10-6 victory over Italy in the men’s water polo quarterfinals at the Tokyo Games.

Hungary, Spain and Greece also advanced.

Filipovic was the MVP when Serbia won gold at the 2016 Olympics, and he remains in fine form in his fourth Olympics.

Krisztian Manhercz scored seven goals to lead Hungary to a 15-11 win against Croatia.

Greece advanced with a 10-4 victory over Montenegro, and Spain held off the United States for a 12-8 win.

Greece is one win away from its first men’s water polo medal at the Olympics.
