After 2 1/2 days without water and electricity, residents of a 10-story apartment complex on the edge of Belgrade descended darkened stairwells late Monday with as many empty plastic containers as they could carry. A municipal water truck, the Yugoslav and Serbian capital's latest defense against NATO, had lumbered into the parking lot and opened its tap. As children scampered in and out of the truck's cabin, adults took turns at the thick black hoses protruding from the back.

In a country where outdoor pools are impractical and the season is in winter rather than summer, creating a world-class Canadian water polo team is difficult. How difficult was evident Sunday when Canada was defeated, 15-4, by tournament favorite Yugoslavia at Cal State Long Beach in second-round pool play of the World Junior Water Polo Championships. Yugoslavia took a 6-0 lead midway through the second quarter. Canada switched to a 2-3 zone and improved its play.

The harder the U.S. national team tried, the easier it became for Yugoslavia at the U.S. Cup at Newport Beach water polo tournament Friday. Yugoslavia's strong counterattack took advantage of several American mistakes on offense to win, 10-8, at Corona del Mar High. "Some guys were trying to be heroes and take that big shot and it surprised us, we weren't ready for that," U.S. Coach John Vargas said. "So what happens on that, they go the other way and score."

The United States and Yugoslavia staggered to the finish line at the Newport International water polo tournament Sunday. Yugoslavia was short of players and the U.S. players were just short of breath after playing six games in as many days. Yugoslavia had just enough left to defeat the U.S. national team, 9-8, in the championship game in front of about 1,600 at the Marian Bergeson Aquatic Center at Corona del Mar High. The U.S.

The U.S. water polo team, which wanted desperately to avenge the tie with Yugoslavia in the final game of the 1984 Olympics that left the U.S. with the silver medal and Yugoslavia with the gold, had to settle for a tie again Wednesday night. The U.S. and Yugoslavia played to an 8-8 tie before a sellout crowd of 1,300 at Canyonview pool at UC San Diego. It was the first game of a four-game series for these two rivals. The teams will play at Newport Harbor High School at 7 p.m.

It is as likely that the U.S. and Yugoslav water polo teams will play a close, physical match as it is that visitors to San Diego will be taken to Sea World. Well, the Yugoslav team visited Shamu Wednesday afternoon. In the evening, the gold and silver medal teams from the 1984 Olympics played to an 8-8 tie in front of a sellout crowd of 1,300 fans at Canyonview pool at UC San Diego. These clubs, which return many of the same players from their Olympic teams, are familiar with ties.

The U.S. water polo team was fit to be tied after the 1984 Summer Olympics. After blowing a 5-2 third-period lead in the championship game, the American team was tied, 5-5, by Yugoslavia. Because overtime periods are not played in international water polo, Yugoslavia won the gold medal by having a better goal differential. Yugoslavia had defeated its opponents by 14 goals; the United States had a margin of nine goals. "It was very difficult to walk away with a tie," said U.S.
