LONDON (AP) - Vanja Udovicic scored with less than a minute to play and Serbia rallied from a three-goal fourth-quarter deficit to beat Montenegro 12-11 and win its second straight bronze medal in men's Olympic water polo.

In a rematch of the 2008 Olympics bronze-medal match, Montenegro pulled ahead 11-8 in the fourth quarter before Serbia got a goal from Slobodan Nikic and two more from Filip Filipovic to tie the score with just over 90 seconds to play.

Udovicic then flipped in a pass from Filipovic with 55 seconds to go, and Serbia held on after Montenegro rattled the post twice in the closing seconds.
