Chile and New Zealand Progress

XI FIP World Polo Championships

Yesterday afternoon, Wednesday 25 October, saw the Zone B teams take to the field for their second instalment of matches in the XI FIP World Polo Championships at the Sydney Polo Club.

The first teams to battle for their spot in the next round were India and defending champions, Chile. India had a great start, giving Chile a good run for their money, but as the second half began, the Chileans took hold of the play scoring goal and goal. The match ended with an 11-2 score in Chile’s favour. If Chile win their next match this Saturday, they will be through to the Final. 
New Zealand and England were the next teams to take to the field, with a multitude of spectators turning out for the event. It was a solid match throughout, but as the clock ticked down, the New Zealand team showed their strength and ability. After a robust start, the English boys began to falter and couldn’t keep up with New Zealand’s teamwork and strategy. The score fell 11-8 in New Zealand’s favour at the final bell. 
The Zone B team to go ahead to the Final is yet to be decided. Chile lead the group with 14 points having won two matches, but following hot on their heels are England with 12 points and New Zealand, who have only played one match thus far. All the Zone B teams will take to the field on Saturday 28 October with the schedule as follows:
10am: New Zealand vs India (Supreme Field)
12pm: USA vs Spain (Supreme Field)
2pm: Chile vs England (International Field)
4pm: Australia vs Argentina (International Field)
