He had a lot of help and it took part of 7 but it was Rodrigo Fernandez of La Herradura making the Golden Goal against a very strong Nacho Badiola to win it all. it was the finals of the USPA Intra Circuit for the Pacific coast circuit and it was a dandy the refs played the game as well leaving the nit picking home and blowing when needed so much faster and exciting . The game got off to a good start as at the end of one it was 2 all Memo and the Fernandez’s got up by at the end of 2 but Luchesse took control of the third and stopped the Mexican machine 3 to 0 and took the lead in the middle at 5 to 3 but we know Memo is always hard to beat in the 4th and today was the same as he went on win chukkar 3 to 2 to in the last 2 seconds of the 4th . They tied the 5 the and it was 8 t0 9 start of the 6 th LH went up by 1 in the 6th only to see Luc com back and tie it and send it to OT . It looked like a quick win for LUC. int he extra one but a foul in the front of goal on offense stopped Luc. and they battled on until and then on a short breakaway it was all Rodrigo barreling down the field with a big stick on him and then wow a nearside neck shot right thru it all and GAME TIME was Over and the trophy heads to Monterrey, Mx .

WELL DONE RODRIGO AND THANKS TO THE FERNANDEZ’S FOR COMING TO SANTA BARBARA HOPE TO SEE YOU BACK, OR JUST STICK AROUND AND WIN THE HIGH GOAL .

In the Conso Finals iit was Film Fiance against another newcomer Hawk Hill and I must say I missed another Young Gun earlier Phil sat down and let son Ian Mactaggart play and he is a deinte bullit and all young gun he had a great game in a loss but he will be a mjor force soon . Well done Ian M. It wa s Leigh Breheen and crew taking the Silver Cup today . We had a great crowd for the finals but as a Man who knows told me last weekend this is not the best idea having the finals first for a Club and I do agree although I always did not like the fact that the Finalist did not get to play on best field . However the crowd leaves after first game and that is kind of sad so maybe on any day of finals just have the finals and make it a huge deal with all the frills a finals deserves .
