coronation cup

El seleccionado argentino de polo derrotó por 13 a 8 a Inglaterra y se consagró campeón de la versión 2014 de la Coronation Cup en el Guards Polo Club.

El equipo albiceleste, liderado por Adolfo Cambiaso y Facundo Pieres, comenzó con buenas sensaciones desde el primer minuto y rápidamente se fue arriba en el marcador.

Tomó el liderazgo del marcador y se quedó con él hasta el final del encuentro, pese a que el elenco británico dio pelea y en ningún momento se entregó.

Inclusive, en el cuarto chukker, Inglaterra llegó a estar a sólo dos goles de su rival. Eso fue el despertador que los sudamericanos necesitaban, y el encargado de reestablecer diferencias fue Pieres, que con el tiempo cumplido del período, puso el 9-6 para evitar sofocones.

LOS EQUIPOS:
ARGENTINA EQUUS & CO.:
Facundo Pieres 10 (9, seis penales), Francisco Beláustegui 3 (2), Adolfo Cambiaso (h) 10 (1) y Julio Ruggeri 4 (1) . Total: 27.

La Gold Cup for the British Open es de Dubai

24 Jul

Para conocer todas las novedades del Polo a nivel internacional, en el blog de Argentina Polo Day les informamos las últimas noticias de este deporte.

british-open

El año pasado Zacara les había quitado la chance de tener la copa, pero este año Dubai tuvo su revancha, y en un increíble partido en la cancha principal de de Cowdray Park Polo Club, el equipo de los Albwardy, que tiene como gran figura a Adolfo Cambiaso, venció a King Power por 13 a 11 y se adjudicó la Gold Cup for the British Open.

No se podía esperar menos de un encuentro que tuvo a dos 10 goles en la cancha. Por un lado, el inagotable Adolfo Cambiaso, al comando de Dubai, y por el otro, Gonzalo Pieres Jr., quien a lo largo de esta Gold Cup hizo una dupla espectacular con Marcos di Paola. Fue la sexta consagración para Dubai en este torneo, y más allá de la derrota, un gran broche de oro para King Power, una organización que debutó este año en el alto handicap británico. Y además, la gran consagración del talentoso y joven jugador argentino, Diego Cavanagh, autor de nueve goles.

Rashid Albwardy, quien había retornado a su equipo en las semifinales, abre el marcador para Dubai en el primer chukker, que finaliza 1 a 1, tras la respuesta de Gonzalito Pieres para King Power.

Dubai tiene su primera ventaja de la tarde en el segundo chukker; con tres goles de Diego Cavanagh, se ponen 4 a 3; Gonzalito, nuevamente descuenta para King Power.

En ese momento el partido estaba muy parejo, con oportunidades para ambos, pero Dubai logró despegarse un poco más en el marcador al llegar al half time. Fue Adolfo Cambiaso quien cerró esa primera parte con un golazo espectacular, que dejó a Dubai 7 a 5 arriba.

El duo Cambiaso-Cavanagh siguió haciendo de las suyas en el cuarto chukker, estirando la diferencia un poco más (9 a 6). Pero las cosas iban a cambiar en el quinto episodio.

Diego Cavanagh pasó por los mimbres de King Power para el 10 a 6; pero ahí fue cuando apareció un King Power recargado… o más bien, Gonzalito Pieres recargado: impiadoso con la defensa de Dubai, Gonza desparramó goles, metiéndose cuatro veces consecutivas en los mimbres de Dubai, para empatar el partido (10 a 10). El acuse de recibo del baldazo de agua fria para Dubai, vino a través de Diego Cavanagh, quien antes de finalizar ese intenso quinto parcial, marcó para el 11 a 10.

Pero Dubai no tenía intenciones de dejar pasar esta oportunidad: con un gol de diferencia, lo parejo del partido y ese quinto chukker avasallador de King Power, las posibilidades estaban para cualquiera de los dos. No hubo tiempo ni de pansarlo, porque ni bien arrancó el último chukker, Adolfo Cambiaso marcó para el 12 a 10. King Power, lejos de bajar los brazos, presionó, hasta que una falta, terminó en penal de 60 yardas a favor de Dubai, y q convirtió Diego Cavanagh. Casi a mitad de chukker, Dubai ya estaba arriba por tres goles (13-10), cuando viene el gol de Pablo Llorente, para King Power, que sin saberlo sería el último de la tarde.

Hubo oportunidades para ambos en esos últimos minutos, pero Dubai, con ventaja relativamente cómoda, pudo manejar el partido. Y este año se les dio, se le dio a Dubai que logró alzar, una vez más en su rica historia, uno de los trofeos más codiciados de Europa.

 

Progresión Dubai: 1-1, 4-3, 7-5, 9-6, 11-10, 13-11

Dubai and King Power in Final of the Gold Cup

17 Jul

For all the news from international Polo, the blog of Argentina Polo Day we reported the latest news about the sport.

adolfocambiasoendubai-76-2012-1-171G

For those who couldn’t watch the games or simply watch them again, they’re already in PoloLine TV.

DUBAI 9, HALCYON GALLERY 8

Dubai (Rashid Albwardy, Alastair Paterson, Adolfo Cambiaso and Diego Cavanagh) scored their sixth consecutive win Wednesday afternoon in the 2014 Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup for the British Open, slipping past a determined Halcyon Gallery (George Hanbury, Mark Tomlinson, James Beim and James Harper) foursome, 9-8.

Halcyon Gallery put the pressure on from the opening throw-in, but it was Dubai’s Adolfo Cambiaso who scored the first goal of the game on a penalty shot for a 1-0 lead. Halcyon Gallery had their opportunities with Mark Tomlinson streaking down the field alone only to miss the final shot at goal. James Harper and James Beim missed scoring opportunities later in the chukker with each placing their shots at goal just wide. The first chukker ended with Dubai on top, 1-0.

Halcyon Gallery continued to press in the second chukker, tying the game up at 1-1. Consecutive goals from Cambiaso, however, stretched the Dubai lead to two goals, 3-1. James Harper scored for Halcyon Gallery on a breakaway to end the chukker, 3-2.

Halcyon Gallery got into foul trouble in the third. Needless errors sent Cavanagh to the penalty line where he converted three penalty shots for a 6-2 halftime advantage.

Halcyon Gallery returned to the field in the fourth chukker more determined than ever. Continuing to pressure the Dubai defense, Halcyon Gallery took advantage of Dubai miscues, converting on three penalty shots (two from Beim and one from Tomlinson) while allowing a single goal from the field from Diego Cavanagh. At the end of the period, Halcyon Gallery had cut the Dubai led down to two goals, 7-5.

An energized Halcyon Gallery team took the field in the fifth. Consecutive goals from James Harper and James Beim (his shot at goal was defensively deflected through the goal posts) had it all even at 7-7. Cavanagh took advantage of another Halcyon Gallery foul by converting a short shot through the posts to end the chukker on top, 8-7.

There was no let up from the Halcyon Gallery as they charged into the final chukker of play, but they would find strong opposition from Dubai. A Dubai foul sent Tomlinson to the penalty line where he converted his second 60-yard penalty shot of the day to knot it up at 8-8. Both sides continued to press with a Halcyon Gallery foul in their own goal mouth allowing Cavanagh to convert a short penalty shot for the go-ahead goal, 9-8 with just two minutes left in regulation play. Halcyon Gallery tried to make a run at it but the veteran Dubai side managed to ride out the clock and earn a trip to the British Open finals.

Score Dubai: 1-0, 3-2, 6-2, 7-5, 8-7, 9-8

Scorers
Dubai: Diego Cavanagh 7, Adolfo Cambiaso 2

Marcos Di Paola scored the first goal of the match in the opening minute of play to give King Power the early edge, 1-0, but Lucchese took advantage of early fouls as Nico Pieres converted penalty shots from 30-yards and 60-yards to make it 2-1, Lucchese. King Power 10-goaler Gonzalito Pieres (older brother of Lucchese’s Nico Pieres) tied it up at the end of the chukker on a penalty conversion of his own, 2-2.

Teammate Pablo Llorente added a goal from the field. Lucas converted a penalty shot for Lucchese’s only goal of the chukker, as they trailed 5-3.

Lucchese’s Nico Pieres scored three times in the third (twice on penalty conversions) and Luke Tomlinson added a goal as they leveled the score at 7-7. King Power got singe goals from Gonzalito Pieres and Di Paola.

In choppy play, King Power took control of the game on the strength of three penalty goals by Gonzalito Pieres. Lucchese replied with a penalty goal from Nico Pieres but trailed, 10-8, with two chukkers left to play.

Three more fifth chukker goals from King Power put the nail in the coffin for Lucchese who managed a single penalty goal from Nico Pieres. With one chukker left in regulation time, King Power led, 13-9.
