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.
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.
Guests mingled with the players during the Polo After Party and listened to the Bill Magee Blues Band.
