Two sisters – Gatsy and Maxime Moellhausen- with Hans Giebeler and Mane Yerena – played against Mother and daughter – Angela and Anabel Colterjohn from Toronto, Canada, with Father and son duo – Giorgio and Giancarlo Brignone. Play was intense and hard fought but the local Moellhausen sister combination with the help of Giebeler and Yerena proved too strong for the team – Careyes by 6-2. High scorer for the winning team was Hans Giebeler with 3 goals.
Polo at the Careyes Polo club is from November to April. The next tournament scheduled in February is the Chinese New Year with teams from California and Ibiza, Spain. Please see www.careyes.com.
