The fourth day of the tournament at the POLO RIDER CUP featured the three games between Deauville International Polo Club against Las Brisas Polo Club of Chicago, La Aguada Polo Club that faced Evviva Polo St. Moritz, and Dos Lunas Polo Club played the last game of the day with Empire Polo Club of Coachella Valley.
In the opening match of the game, Deauville Int. Polo Club defeated Las Brisas Polo Club of Chicago by 10-3 goals. In the third chukker, we witnessed two sensational goals, one from Juan José Storni that scored the 5-1 with a broken mallet and afterwards, Pierre-Henri N’Goumou scored the 6-1 from end to end.
Evviva Polo St.Moritz won his game against La Aguada Polo Club by 7-6 goals, and it was one of the closest games we saw since the tournament started. The second game of the day was decided in the overtime as the fifth chukker ended 6-6. In the last seconds of the last chukker Martin Aguerre was very closed to seal the win for his team, but he missed it and forced an extra chukker. Andreas Bihrer that played today in replacement of Piero Dillier scored the winning goal.
The closing game of the day was won by Empire Polo Club Coachella Valley that beat Dos Lunas Polo Club by 7 to 5. The first chukkers were balanced between both teams, but from the fourth chukker Tito Ruiz Guiñazu extended the lead with two goals, and Dos Lunas could not shorten the gap in the final chukker.
