Sotogrande in Full Swing


Plenty of polo action


Yesterday was full of action at Santa María Polo Club with a flurry of matches across all three handicap levels.

In The Copa de Plata Isolas (4-6 goal) there were three matches with La Esperanza defeating Brunei 14-8, Bronze Cup finalists Rhone Hill defeating La Isla Iridike 10-4, Isolas losing out 12-6 to Santa Quiteria and La Clarita defeating Finca Monasterio 7-5. The low goal action will continue on Saturday 10 August with Isolas vs La Clarita, Finca Monasterio vs Santa Quiteria, La Esperanza vs Rhone Hill & La Isla Iridike vs Brunei.

Yesterday also saw two matches in The Royal Bliss Copa de Plata (12-14 goal) with a 13-8 win for Brunei over Esso and La Esperanza Cotton House securing an 11-7 win against Jolly Roger. The medium goal action continues today with Royal Salute vs HB La Mangosta and Bronze Cup winners Ayala vs Sainte Mesme. Tomororw, Friday 9 August will see Jolly Roger vs Esso & La Esperanza Cotton House and on Saturday 10 August there will be two further matches, Sainte Mesme vs Royal Salute & Ayala vs HB La Mangosta.

The Royal Bliss Copa de Plata (20 goal) has been underway since last week and teams are nearing the Semi Final stages which begin on Wednesday 14 August. Before then, there are still four qualifying matches to be played to decide the semi finalists. So far, Brunei are the only team to have won both their matches, will their success continue tomorrow against Dos Lunas?
