Taittinger take Jamaica Open title

Four teams contest the 12-goal tournament in Kingston

THE JAMAICA OPEN concluded yesterday with a win for the Taittinger team at Kingston Polo Club. The line-up of Marc Melville, Mark Wates, Tomas Gandara and Hamish Wates defeated Land Rover – James Robertson, John Byles, Jordon Samuda and Jose Lartiroyen – 7-4 in the final of the 12-goal tournament.

Taittinger trailed for the first half of the match, but a change of tactics at half-time saw them take the lead in the third chukka. Three-goaler Mark Wates was named most valuable player.

Last year's winners, Scotia, won the subsidiary final, having dominatd the match against Borgne Restaurant, which included Brit Jamie Le Hardy, to win 5-1. Scotia fielded the same team that won the tournament in 2012 – Paul Lalor, Mitta Rousseau, Jorge Donovan and Jason Wates.
