Semifinal of the Sir Winston Churchill Cup

Dear All,
Greetings from Al Habtoor Polo Resort and Club.
Here is the report on the Semifinal of the Sir Winston Churchill Cup.

 

The Semifinal of the Sir Winston Churchill Cup was as exciting as could be

The first match saw Habtoor Polo and Bangash Polo in an intense fight. HabtoorPolo was awarded a half goal due to handicap difference, being a 9goal team whereas Bangash is 10 goals. The match started with HabtoorPolo leaping ahead finishing the first chukker with a 3 ½ -1advantage. Bangash regrouped and fought back in the second chukkerfinishing off at an almost equal 4 ½ -4. The second half saw Bangashget ahead of Habtoor Polo twice and Habtoor fighting back immediatelyand finishing off with a final score of 7 ½ over 7 taking Habtoor polo on to the Final of the Sir Winston Churchill Cup.

 

The second match was a battle between Bin Drai and Mahra Polo team. BinDrai started off strong scoring several goal in a row and not lettingMahra get by, but they did and scored a goal in the first chukker. Byhalf time the teams stood Bin Drai 5 – Mahra 1.

The second half saw Mahra regain some power putting several balls throughthe goals and closing the gap, but Raul Laplacette, or the bullet ashe is called due to his black helmet not having a visor, made sureBin Drai had the final say and the match ended with Bin Drai ahead at7-6.

The final of the Sir Winston Churchill cup will be played tomorrow Friday the 9that 3:30 pm between Habtoor Polo and Bin Drai Polo at Al Habtoor PoloResort and Club field 1.

Thank you
