Luna Polo Shines Bright to Win Eldorado Cup 4 Goal0

Posted on February 16th, 2017 in News, Uncategorized

Perhaps powered by the full moon of Friday evening February 10, Jennifer Alexy and David Carlson’s Luna Polo team (Jennifer Alexy .5, David Carlson -1, Diego Larregli 2, Ernesto Ezcurra 2)  shone brightly on Sunday morning February 12 to roll to a 7.5 to 6 victory over Steve Pollack and Pat Powell’s Le Mirage/Blazers (Steve Pollack -1, Pat Powell, Kyle Fargey 3, Alvaro Tadeo 2) in the final game of the Eldorado Cup 4 Goal Tournament.

With a large and vocal 10 AM Cantina breakfast crowd in attendance, Luna started off with a handicap award of one half goal and Le Mirage/Blazers took an early lead with a quick goal at the start but Luna Polo got it back and the first ended with the satellites up by the handicap difference.

Luna outscored Le Mirage/Blazers 4 to 2 in the second that allowed them a comfortable lead at halftime of 5.5 – 3.

Each team counted once in the third.

Le Mirage/Blazers closed the gap with a quick goal in the fourth but came no closer as Luna Polo counted one more. The Pollack and Powell partnership grabbed another late to end the game at 7.5 – 6.

The Luna scoring came from Ezcurra with four (one foul), Alexy counting two, and Larregli with one.

The reply saw Tadeo notch four (three fouls) and Fargey strike twice.
