Palm Beach Equine Victorious

Joe Barry Memorial 2020

On Sunday 12 January, the second phase of the US 18 goal, the 2020 Joe Barry Memorial, came to an end at the International Polo Club Palm Beach, with Palm Beach Equine and Stable Door Polo pitted against one another in the Final.

Yesterday’s Final was a rematch of last weekend’s Iglehart Cup Final, again between Palm Beach Equine and Stable Door Polo, which Stable Door Polo sealed with a 10-8 win. With both teams possessing intimate knowledge of their opposition’s play and style, it was a fast-paced display of skill with the goals flying from end-to-end in a high scoring Final. The lead changed five times during the match and the result was anyone’s guess right up to the last chukka.
In the end, the fifth and final lead change happened in the sixth chukka in favour of Palm Beach Equine, which saw them take the title with a score of 14-12. Raúl ‘Gringo’ Colombres was named Most Valuable Player and also picked up Best Playing Pony for Coquito.
The 18 goal action continues this week with the Ylvisaker Cup, which has eight teams entered. The first match takes place tomorrow, Wednesday 15 January between Coca Cola and La Indiana.
The Joe Barry Memorial Final Teams:
Palm Beach Equine (18): Gonzalo Ferrari (4), Lucas Díaz Alberdi (6), Raúl ‘Gringo’ Colombres (8) & Scott Swerdlin (0)
Stable Door Polo (18): Matias Magrini (7), Santino Magrini (4), Henry Porter (3) & Robert Orthwein (4)
