The goals were coming from the usual variety of sources, two superb finishes from Balázs Hárai added to braces of goals from Márton Vámos and Dénes Varga and a howitzer of a throw from Gergő Zalánki.
The third quarter saw a predictable response from the world championship bronze-medallists but Hungary still held them 3-3 to lead 9-8 with one quarter remaining.
A remarkable win seemed on the cards when they surged 12-9 ahead with more than five minutes remaining but this Greek national team is made of stern stuff, a team which kept sneaking goals to stop Hungary extending their lead to the magic five-goal margin.
The final score was 13-10, not quite what Hungary were aiming for but still very encouraging ahead of the Olympic summer to come.
