Audi knock White Birch off the top spot

USPA East Coast Open 2015 sees sudden death overtime win

Nic Roldan scored the winning goal for team Audi, to take the USPA East Coast Open 2015 title on Sunday 6 September. The match was nail bitingly close, seeing the great White Birch team hold a lead for the greater portion of the game, until being pipped to the post in sudden death overtime. 

Audi led 2-1 at the end of the first chukka after a goal from Miguel Novillo Astrada, however, White Birch closed the gap, and the game proceeded neck and neck the whole way through. Hilario Ulloa kept up the pace for the White Birch team, scoring the vast majority of his team's points, but Astrada was more than a match, answering his questions, and fighting to keep Audi on White Birch's tail. White Birch pulled ahead with a two goal lead, 10-8, at the end of the fourth chukka. However, the fifth chukka saw Audi redouble their efforts – the score becoming 10 all, then 11 all, as the equally matched teams fought for dominance. At the end of chukka five, White Birch had edged ahead by a goal, to see the score 12-11, but the final chukka saw Audi come back to equalise and push the two teams into overtime, where the struggle continued. Sudden death overtime, and that final goal from Nic Roldan, saw Audi take the trophy, 14-13.
In the Subsidiary Final, McLaren Greenwich won the Tommy B. Glynn Auxiliary Cup 15-14 over Turkish Airlines.

Audi (20): Marc Ganzi (1), Juancito Bollini (2), Nic Roldan (8), Miguel Novillo Astrada (9)
