It was another exciting afternoon at San Diego Polo Club as crowds gathered for the annual Surf Cup.
In the first match, Kimo Huddleston (4) of Monteverde/Southwind had a stellar performance, surprising onlookers with a breakaway after a knock in, trapping an air ball and sailing it though the goal about 40-60 yards out. With just 10 seconds left in the 2nd chuckker, his resulting goal tied the game at 4 to 4.
Miguel Gutierrez of team Hanalei Bay/Adeptus broke a quiet streak, scoring 3 goals in the match. And Mariano Fassetta racked up 4 more goals in the second half to ultimately take his team to the trophy deck.
Alvaro Tadeo, at a diminutive 5’8” compensated for his stature with aggressive action on the field. He scored 2 goals for team Monteverde/Southwind but it wasn’t enough to win the match – the team was outscored by team Hanalei Bay/Adeptus who came out on top, 10 to 8.
During intermission, Del Mar Hat Company produced a fun fashion show celebrating Hat Day at the San Diego Polo Club. Models showed off hats big and small, just in time for the Race Season!
In the feature match, Tritech/La Pasion thought they had it in the bag during the first half of the game, winning 8 to 1 over San Judas/San Fernando. But San Judas/San Fernando gave Tritech/La Pasion a run for their money in the final chukkers. Ramon Richard and Roberto Estudillo scored 3 goals each.
Tracee Brunetti earned the ball well and scored 4 goals for team Tritech/La Pasion who won the match 12 to 8.
Guests mingled with the players during the Polo After Party and listened to the Bill Magee Blues Band.
The “Late Nite After Party” was held at Paradise Grille and sponsored by Mogl.
