Sotogrande Finalists Decided
Silver Cup Finals this weekend
The Silver Cups in The Mansion 48th International Polo Tournament at Santa María Polo Club are entering their final phases with the Finals set across the low, medium and high goal.
Yesterday saw Rhone Hill and La Esperanza defeat Finca Monasterio and La Clarita respectively to secure their places in Friday’s Final in The Isolas Silver Cup (4-6 goal).
The Royal Bliss Copa de Plata (12-14 goal) finalists were also decided yesterday, with Ayala defeating Brunei 12-9 and Royal Salute defeating Cotton House La Esperanza 10-8 to take their places in the Final, also to be played on Friday 16 August.
