Ylvisaker Cup Final

Valiente seal the deal

On Sunday 25 February, Valiente came up against GSA in the Final of the Ylvisaker Cup, the next stage of the USA 20 goal season. Bob Jornayvaz's team came out the victors 8-6, following a nail-biting match. This was the first time Valiente have won this tournament, having been in the Final twice before, but with no cigar. After the match, world number one Cambiaso spoke about his next challenge, playing alongside his usual adversary Facundo Pieres. "It's good fun. We're going to have to find the way to both adapt to each other. I will try to adapt myself to him which is the best I can do. I think we're going to do very well!". The Ylvisaker Cup is played annually as a tribute to William T. 'Bill' Ylvisaker, a pioneer who was responsible for developing the Wellington, Florida area into one of the high goal capitals of the world. Established in 2003, the Ylvisaker Cup has been exclusively played at the International Polo Club in Palm Beach and has been known to welcome up to 16 teams across two leagues. This tournament has now become a permanent feature in the USA's high goal season, working towards the ultimate goal, the US Open Final which will take place on 22 April. 

The Ylvisaker Cup Final Teams:
Valiente (20): Bob Jornayvaz (2), Bautista Panelo (2), Santi Torres (6) & Adolfo Cambiaso (10)
GSA (20): Henry Porter (2), Dylan Rossiter (4), Mariano González (7) & Matías Magrini (7)
