C.V. Whitney Cup Continues

Semi Finals Set

Action from our American cousins continues at International Polo Club, Palm Beach with The C.V. Whitney Cup which began on 17 February. The 22 goal tournament forms the first leg of The Gauntlet of Polo and this year sees nine teams competing for their chance to win the title and with it the $125,000 prizemoney at 18 goal level. La Indiana secured the first spot in the Semi Finals, ranking first after two rounds by securing victory over Aspen Dutta-Corp. Scone defeated Aspen/Dutta Corp 12-9, but their place in the Semi Final was not guaranteed. 
Meanwhile on 27 February a duo of high goal matches saw Coca-Cola secure a 13-10 victory over Santa Clara. Park Place also emerged victorious against Cessna with a 10-6 clear margin
In the feature game of the week, Pilot and Tonkawa met in a rematch, where Tonkawa emerged victorious for a second time, defeating Pilot 10-9 in overtime. 
This meant that Coca-Cola, Park Place, Scone and Tonkawa had to face a penalty shootout on Monday 1 March to establish who will secure the remaining Semi Final spots. Coca-Cola, Park Place and Scone were the overall winners of the shootout and will now join La Indiana in the Semi Finals on Wednesday 3 March with Coca-Cola vs Park Place and Scone vs La Indiana, with the tournament concluding on Sunday 7 March. All of the matches are being live streamed via Global Polo here.
