Valiente, Colorado, Tonkawa and GSA secure Semi Final positions in the Ylvisaker Cup

Update from the International Polo Club

On Sunday 18 February, eight teams met at IPC for the Quarter Finals of the 20 goal Ylvisaker Cup. In the first match of the day, GSA narrowly came out the victors over Pilot with a 10-9 score, having sat just behind their rivals for the first five chukkas. Mariano González was named Most Valuable Player, whilst his pony Macarena was presented with the Best Playing Pony rug.

Next to take to the field, Tonkawa repeated GSA's earlier performance, in another tight game, beating Michael Bickford's La Indiana side 12-11. Rob Jornayvaz's Colorado were the next team to secure their space in the Semi Finals with a 13-10 win against Postage Stamp, the team put together by Annabelle Gundlach's, the only female patron in this year's tournament. Last, but my no means least, Bob Jornayvez's unbeatable Valiente secured the final coveted spot in the Semi Finals with a 13-6 win against SD Farms, in the last match of the day. 
The Ylvisaker Cup Semi Finals will take place on Wednesday 21 February with the matches falling as follows:
12pm: Valiente vs Tonkawa
3pm: GSA vs Colorado
Will there be a Jornayvez in the Final or can this year's underdog teams ruffle some feathers?
