England Win St Regis International
England captured the St. Regis International after defeating The Americas by 6-3 , in the first International test match of the season in England, that took place today at Cowdray Park Polo Club on Saturday 16th May.
After a lack lustre first chukka, The Americas opened the scoreboard in the second chukka and it was three all at half time. However, after half time England managed to get into a rhythm and Tom Morley, who was substituting for an injured Richard Le Poer, had a outstanding game. England secured the final 6-3 win in the last chukkas.
Lucky, ridden by James Beim, was named BPP, while MVP honours went to Manuel Elizalde.
ENGLAND: Tom Morley 6, Max Charlton 7, James Beim 7, James Harper 7. Total: 26
THE AMERICAS: Nacho Figueras 6, Manuel Elizalde 5, Matias Torres Zavaleta 6, Jaime García Huidobro 8. Total: 26
James Beim said, “Tom Morley had a good day today, plus we had good horses as well. We missed some chances, the game was a bit messy until the fourth of fifth chukker… I think we lost some rhythm, but we could play well in the end and I am very happy we won.”
