On Friday, March 17th, two games from the 12-goal and 22-goal category took place in the Dominican Republic. The first match belonged to the 22-goal category, HB Polo vs. Sebucan-HPA. It was a very even match, that ended in 11-10 in favor of the team of the French patron Ludovic Pailloncy.
The second match of the day, from the 12-goal category, was between Casa de Campo and Costasur. The local team, Casa de Campo, won by 10-8.
Then, on Saturday March 18th, another two matches were held. The first match was the battle between the two undefeated teams, HB Polo and Lechuza Caracas. The Venezuelan team proved once more that it is a well-oiled machine and was able to take the lead from the 1st chukka and keep it up throughout all the game. On the 5th period, they managed to extend the difference by 3 goals, and the game finally ended in 10-7 in favor of Victor Vargas’ team.
The 12-goal category also had a game that day, Pitirri El Palenque, possibly the best team of the category, won once again over La Potranca by 13-10.
