Carlucho Arellano showed streaks of greatness Friday afternoon as he scored nine goals in leading Traviseo (Lucas Arellano, Teo Calle, Juancito Bollini and Carlucho Arellano) to a 13-10 win over Odosan (Joe Chai, Ricky Mershad, Juan Redlich and Juaquin Panelo) in the opening game of the 2015 8-goal Aspen Valley Cup at the Grand Champions Polo Club Friday afternoon.
