Identity Polo Stays Perfect to Win Officers Cup 4 Goal0

Posted on January 29th, 2018 in News, Uncategorized

The final of the Coachella Valley Officer’s Cup 4 Goal turned out to be a very fast and open polo game. Identity Polo (Anne Evamy, Alex Green -1, Kyle Fargey 3, Diego Coscio 2) arrived with a perfect record and Palm Desert/Film Finance (Dan Horn, Leigh Brecheen, Remy Du Celliee Muller 3, Antonio Juarez 1) came with just one loss.
From the start it was obvious that both teams were prepared to hit and run and as a result, the large crowd was well entertained throughout.
The first period featured many chances for both contenders with neither able to score.
The fast and open play continued in the second as Fargey counted two field goals and Identity led by that pair at halftime (2 – 0).
Palm Desert/Film Finance counted the first goal of the third frame as Du Celliee Muller ran to score and narrowed the gap to just one. Fargey replied for Identity with a magnificent run and cut shot from 90 yards and ‘way’ left – the announcer’s shot of the day – grabbed the two goal lead back for Identity and it was on to the final chukker with the count still favoring Identity at 3 – 1.
Fargey struck again in the early fourth with another bomb but Du Celliee Muller replied with a missile of his own to again trail by two with ample time left on the clock for a comeback. However, Fargey was the one to take advantage of that time and ran to score his fifth of the day to create a final score of 5 – 2 to favor Identity.
While everyone on both teams played well and displayed the teamwork that got them to the final, the difference was Fargey and as a result, he was appointed as the MVP.
To cap off an extraordinary afternoon for Fargey, his fourth chukker mare Milly was chosen as the Best Playing Pony.
