East Coast Open Final

Father and son duo secure title

The East Coast Open came to an end on Sunday 10 September at Greenwich Polo Club after an intense Final between GSA and Audi. GSA built upon their three goal handicap advantage to maintain a healthy lead for the first half, with the scoreboard reading 6-1 at half-time. In the second half, GSA’s lead continued, but Audi made a strong comeback with a series of goals bringing them within just one goal of GSA by the final whistle. However it was not enough and GSA ran out the winners 10-9. GSA’s Matías Magrini was named Most Valuable Player, whilst Audi’s Mariano Aguerre’s pony, Machitos Tere, was presented with the Best Playing Pony prize. 

Before the Final, Postage Stamp Farm defeated Hublot 13-9 to secure the Subsidiary Cup, and Postage Stamp Farm’s Miguel Novillo Astrada was named Most Valuable Player.
