The way a finals match should be!!

I had the pleasure of attending the Smoak Family Polo Tournament Finals match on Sunday - and what a match, wow!!  This was one of the best 8-goal matches I have ever seen.  Lots of defense, offense, skill, speed...   After the 6th chukker it was a tie game, so it went into sudden-death overtime.  It was non-stop action, both teams proved they deserved to be in the finals!  You don't see this kind of scoring usually in an 8-goal tourny. (8 goal is the handicap level total of the players on each team -  If you're not too sure about polo - check out some of my previous posts labeled 'polo 101' )    :)      

Here are the players:

Team: Hutchinson Farm/First View (Charlie Hutchinson IV, Joe Meyer, Will Tankard, Nick Snow)

Team:  Diavoli Rossi (Andrew Seibert, Lauren Biddle, Matthew Fonseca, Tommy Biddle)

WINNERS>>  Hutchinson Farm/First View!  17-16
