Desert Palm 2 defeated Ghantoot by a narrow 8-7, in extra chukka, in today’s single match for the McLaren Silver Cup, held at Desert Palm Polo Club.

In a very hard fought contest, both teams exchanged the lead many times, and tied a couple of chukkas. The match was so close, that there was just a one goal average in the lead either Ghantoot or Desert Palm 2.

The match was decided in extra chukka, following a great play by Matias Torres Zavaleta, who scored the winning goal for Desert Palm 2.
