Joe Barry Cup Final

Tonkawa take home gold in Florida

As the sun shone down on the International Polo Club, Florida, thousands of avid polo fans gathered for the Final of the Joe Barry Cup, the first in the high goal polo series in Florida, USA. Following some exceedingly exciting Semi Final matches, Villa del Lago/Modere and Tonkawa secured their spots in the coveted Final with substantial wins. 

Despite a series of skilful plays from 8 goaler Hilario Ulloa, by half-time Villa del Lago/Modere were 6-2 down, unable to answer plays from the expert duo of Sapo Caset and Julián de Lusaretta. Going into the second half, Villa del Lago/Modere hoped their unlucky streak in front of goal would come to an end, but despite notching up a worthy seven goals it wasn't to be. As the final bell sounded, Tonkawa walked away the victors with a 12-9 win, a great start to the American high goal season.
