Castle Howard Triumph

2015-07-19

No better way to spend an afternoon

Yesterday we had a fabulous day of action packed polo with glorious weather in the picture perfect setting of Castle Howard. Thank you to everyone who came and supported us.

The 2 finals could not have been closer. The Gough Cup, which is very kindly sponsored by the Gough family, ended with the Spartans coming out victorious by just ½ a goal! Well done to all players and especially Becky Mulgrove who won most valuable player and Emma Sanderson’s pony Babs who won best playing pony.

The action then really stepped up and we saw fast and furious polo from both the Castle Howard Cup teams. White Rose White were leading throughout the game but a goal at the end of the 4th from Castle Howard saw a draw at full time. We then had to go to a golden 5th chukka – first goal wins!! Both teams battled so hard and a goal didn’t come until the dying seconds of the chukka. Well done to all but especially Castle Howard who were eventually crowned champions
