Jaeger-LeCoultre Gold Cup Final 2016 UK
This is an excerpt from the JLC website blog.
Two amazing teams, King Power Foxes and La Indiana fiercely competed for the most coveted Gold Cup, with King Power Foxes deservedly retained the title of British Open Champions with a comfortable margin of 9-5.
During this exciting day, Jaeger-LeCoultre CEO Daniel Riedo welcomed guests at the Jaeger-LeCoultre lounge in a friendly atmosphere including Jaeger-LeCoultre Polo Ambassadors Clare Milford Haven, Luke Tomlinson and Eduardo Novillo Astrada as well as friend of the Brand Astrid Muñoz and special guest David Gandy.
King Power Foxes made the first mark on the scoreboard with a 40 yard penalty put through by Facundo Pieres, swiftly followed by goals from Hugo Lewis and Gonzalo Pieres. The pacey action of chukka 1 continued with goals from Agustin Merlos and Julian de Lusaretta for La Indiana and the chukka ended with the blue shirts of King Power Foxes just ahead at 3-2. As the players settled into the match there were missed attempts at goal by both teams and just five more goals on the score board through chukkas 2 and 3 so that by half time the score was poised at 5-5. After a goalless fourth chukka, La Indiana team finally cracked in the fifth, as the game turned on a De Lusaretta own goal, King Power seizing the moment to dominate the final two chukkas.
