LONDON - Spain scored goals from 10 different players to ease past Australia in a 13-9 win in men's water polo at the London Olympics.

In a balanced display, every outfield player except Balazs Sziranyi Somogyi scored Thursday for Spain, which is looking for its first Olympic medal in men's water polo since wining gold in 1996.

Filipe Perrone Rocha, Albert Espanol Lifante and David Martin Lozano led the way with two goals apiece for Spain, while Billy Miller scored five times for Australia.

The win gives Spain four points from three Group A matches, positioning them well for qualifying for the quarterfinals. Australia is still in the running, with two points from three games.
