Handicap 2.5 Izzy Parsons led handicap 7.5 Mascor to a 6-3.5 victory over Touchdown Forte to lift the Timau Stores Challenge Cup Championships at Northern Kenya Polo Club in Timau on Sunday.
This being the second leg of the Kenya Polo Association (KPA) league after the Nairobi Polo Club championships in January and February, Parsons made a comeback with the first victory having done well in the city tournaments six months back.
Parsons’ teammates in Callum Shaw(2), Joss Craig(2) and Geoff Morley(1) were in a class of their own with the free-scoring Shaw being on target three times in the second, third and fourth chukkas after Morley had put through the ball in the first chukka.
Morley finished his double in the fourth chukka as Parsons did it once to make a good start ahead of the second competition slated for the same venue this weekend.
Handicap 7 Touchdown Forte team of Jamie Murray(5), Gordy Millar(2), Cheza Millar(0) and Louis Roumeguere(0) had their hat-trick.
