Angels Secure Victory

The Ladies British Open

British ladies’ polo is on the up and The Ladies British Open was a sure sign of exciting things to come in this version of our sport. The local triad of the Meadows sisters, Genevieve and Saskia, alongside Nell Jacob, in their Angels shirts, were a force to be reckoned with from the off, securing a strong five goals in the first chukka. Charlotte Christodoulou’s Regal Warriors looked a little shaken and on the back foot, but came back in the second chukka with a vengeance to narrow the scores to 11-5 at half-time. The third chukka was Regal Warriors’ period, as Bryony Taylor and Heloise Wilson Smith narrowed the gap on the scoreboard to 12-10, still in Angels’ favour. Going into the last chukka, it looked like Regal Warriors might have the strength to overcome the mighty Angels, with two goals in it and two minutes to go, but Genevieve Meadows had other ideas, securing one goal, followed by one from teammate Nell Jacob, to secure The Ladies British Open for Angels, 17-13.
Nell Jacob, for her consistently good play at back, was named Most Valuable Player, whilst Sapphire, owned and played by Bryony Taylor was awarded the Polo Times Best Playing Pony rug.
