Spectacular fifth chukka success
On Friday 5 November, El Overo UAE defeated Nuestra Tierra 11-8 in The Copa Pilar Final at the Alfredo Lalor de Pilar headquarters. The first half was very even between the two teams and saw Nuestra Tierra get off to a strong start, scoring two early goals. However, El Overo UAE had a fantastic fifth chukka, with a solid run from Alfredo Cappella meaning they dominated the scoreboard and inched closer to the title. The sixth chukka saw Lucas Monteverde score a decisive goal for El Overo UAE, which cemented their 11-8 victory.
