Niksa Dobud scored five goals and Croatia beat Kazakhstan 12-4 to finish the preliminary round of men's water polo undefeated.

One of the leading medal contenders in London, Croatia poured it on early Monday against an outclassed Kazakhstan team, scoring the game's first five goals to cruise to an easy win.

Samir Barac and Miho Boskovic both scored twice for Croatia, which already had secured the top seed out of Group A for the quarterfinals.

With the loss, Kazakhstan finished the tournament winless and at the bottom of Group A.
