The Arundel Equine Hospital Polo Cup 2014

Amazingly not a drop of rain fell on Sunday for the finals of the Arundel Equine Hospital Polo Cup, in fact that yellow ball in the sky even made an appearance! Three teams battled it out for the coveted title and the quality and speed of the play on display showed the determination of all teams to win.


The first battle took place between Team Hickstead and Team Clague. The first chukka was even all the way but in the second chukka Team Hickstead took the lead with a two point goal from Acosta which gave them the edge at the final bell.

The second match was between Team Clague and Mrs Bs. Again the first chukka was very close and it was in the second chukka with a well taken goal from Betteridge shortly followed by another from Taylor that gave Mrs Bs a chance to fight it out for the title against Team Hickstead.

The victor of the last two chukkas of the day would be the winner. Mrs Bs looked to be in control at the end of the first chukka against Team Hickstead with a 4-1 lead. This didn't dampen the spirits of a determined Team Hickstead side who came out all guns blazing in the second chukka.

Still neck and neck in score with only a minute on the clock, Mrs Bs gave away a 15 yard penalty which converted calmly by Acosta gave Team Hickstead the lead, 6-5 was the score. Taylor made an attempt at goal but sadly the bell sounded just before the ball went in.

Team Hickstead ran out the victors taking home some Joint Aid made and supplied by the Arundel Equine Hospital and some lovely rugs to treat their ponies after a great final.

Many thanks to The Arundel Equine Hospital for their support and to all the teams and players for taking part. It was a lovey series of matches which were all closely contested.
