England retains Westchester Cup

John Paul Clarkin scores winning goal in extra chukka to beat the USA 12-11

England retained the Westchester Cup after beating the USA 12-11 at Guards Polo Club.

The two sides were drawing 11-11 at the end of the regulation six chukkas, sending the game into a sudden death extra chukka. In that period John Paul Clarkin scored the winning “golden-goal” for England to the delight of the home crowd.

The 26-goal USA side – patron Marc Ganzi, Nic Roldan, Polito Pieres and Mike Azzaro –  started with a 2-0 head start on handicap and were still narrowly in front at half time, leading 8-7. 

However, England – Mark and Luke Tomlinson, James Beim and Clarkin – fought back in the second half and led by two goals with two minutes to play, before eventually snatching the win in extra time.
