Danville's Maggie Steffens dominated the Olympic water polo games on Monday, scoring 7 goals and lending one assist. Her strong efforts led to the Americans beating Hungary in a tight game - 14-13 - in the London Games opener at the Water Polo Arena.
The 19-year-old Steffens attends Stanford University. That's where her sister, Jessica Steffens, graduated from too, and who is also her water polo team mate.
The women's team was helped by team captain and Stanford graduate Brenda Villa, who had five assists and one goal. Elsie Windes, a UC Berkeley graduate, had one assist, and Stanford graduate Annika Dries also had an assist.
The other Bay Area players on the team are: Heather Petri of Oakland, who is a Cal graduate and Melissa Seidemann of Danville, who graduated from Stanford.
The U.S. women's next game is Wednesday against Spain.
