Saint Patrick’s Day Sunday Polo – presented by Ketel One Botanicals – in front of a huge crowd, featured, first of all, a USPA 6 Goal Governor’s Cup tournament game followed by a USPA 12 Goal Rossmore Cup Skins qualifier.

The Governor’s Cup action featured Thermal (Reg Whyte, Bayne Bossom 2, Earnie Ezcurra 2 Felipe Sordelli 2) going up against Bush League (Virgil Kyle .5, Ryan Robertson .5, Ulysses Escapite 4, Jose Rodriquez 1).

With Thermal leading after the first three chukkers (3 – 0, 3 – 2, 4 – 3), Bush League came back in the fourth period to force an overtime frame with the count tied at six. With the throw-in to start the decider inside 40 yards and right of the Thermal goal, Escapite needed only 18 seconds to score the winner. With the 7 – 6  win, Bush league remained undefeated in qualifying play.

The second game, on this perfect afternoon for polo, saw Highwood (Ron Matheson, Marcello Rodriquez-Abbiati 4, Marcos Llambias 4, Francisco Rodriquez-Mera 4) mount up against Twin Palms (Chris Maloney 1, Graham Bray 3, Ruben Coscia 4, Ulysses Escapite 4).

After three periods, Highwood led by a count of 7 – 3. Twin Palms came back in the fourth and early fifth and tied the score at seven. However, Highwood regrouped and rode to a 12 – 7 victory.

With the Ketel One Botanical ladies present, players were presented with Ketel One Botanicals after both games.
