January 29, 2017

In the early game, Coca-Cola let the fizz out and shut out Villa del Lago twice 4-0 in the first two chukkers to lead 8-0 and was leading 9-2 at the turn. Hilario Ulloa was very active in the second chukker, and Villa del Lago made a great comeback to within three, 11-8 scoring with a beautiful near side neck shot from 77 yards with a lot of reverse English. But Coca-Cola was vigilant, Julio Arellano scoring three goals for Coca-Cola’s win 14-8.
Score Coca-Cola: 4-0. 8-0. 9-2. 9-3. 11-7. 14-8.
Top Scorer Coca-Cola: Julio Arellano (9).
Top Scorer Villa del Lago: Hilario Ulloa (6).
The second game pitted two very young teams, no one on Horseware/Tackeria probably older than 26 years old. A very well played game with a lot of young talent on the field, the play back and forth, though from the start Horseware/Tackeria seemed to take better advantage of their effort outscoring Equine Liquid Biocell 7-2 in the first two chukkers (with two goals on handicap). The third was equal, 3 goals each, Horseware/Tackeria up by 4, 10-6, at the turn. Starting the second half, the quartet of Horseware/Tackeria seemed to open all the doors, 2 goals by Mariano Gracida and Tommy Collingwood made it 12-6 in the fourth, and three more by Juan Martin Obregon and Collingwood (2) made it 15-6, Horseware/Tackeria winning 17-7.
Score Horseware/Tackeria: 5-2, 7-3, 10-6, 12-6, 15-6, 17-7.
Top Scorer Horseware/Tackeria: Juan Martín Obregon (8).
Top Scorer Equine Liquid Biocell: Jared Zenni (4).
