King Power Gold Cup & British Ladies Open

Action aplenty at Cowdray Park

Over the course of Monday and Tuesday there was a plethora of polo played at Cowdray Park Polo Club with matches being played for both The British Ladies Open and The King Power Gold Cup.
The British Ladies Open, the third stage of the Victrix Ludorum series, saw five matches played over the course of Monday and Tuesday with wins for La Rosada, MJVH Polo and a double win for Park Place. The action continues today, with the remaining two qualifying matches being played with Monterosso Vikings vs La Rosada (3pm) and MJVH Polo vs Coombe Place (4pm). Park Place have already secured their place in the Semi Final, after their impressive and unbeaten qualifying matches, both of which they won with a score of 9-2. The Semi Finals will be played on Friday 17 July, followed by the Finals on Sunday 19 July. 
Yesterday, Tuesday 14 July, saw The King Power Gold Cup resume after a three-day break. The first match of the day was a family affair with Facundo and Gonzalito Pieres (Park Place) facing Nico Pieres (Scone). Nico Pieres, the tournament’s leading goal scorer made his mark in the early stages of the match, but Facundo and Gonzalito Pieres replied with goals of their own, and with both sides evenly matched, the scores were tied at 6-6 at half-time. Nico Pieres continued his goal scoring spree at the start of the second half with two converted penalties, but Park Place’s attack was relentless and the high scoring match soared into double digits, and eventually their persistence paid off and they took a 16-13 win. With the win Park Place moved to the top of Zone A. 
With all the teams vying for a position in the Quarter and Semi Finals, both teams felt the pressure in the second match of the day between Next Generation and Polo Stud Schöckemohle. The match saw fast, end-to-end play, with both teams battling it out in the highest scoring match so far of the tournament, with an impressive 32 goals scored. Next Generation’s youngest player, Poroto Cambiaso, scored an impressive eight goals, relective of Next Generation’s 68% accuracy from the field. Polo Stud Schöckemohle were even more accurate with their field goals, with 77% accuracy from the field, however they attempted nine fewer shots at goal, and in the end it was Next Generation’s extra possession which sealed their 17-15 win. 
The action continues today with Monterosso vs Park Place Vaara (12pm) and Les Lions/Great Oak vs Thai Polo NW (3pm).
