Thanks Kev - excellent day of polo on a good court surface and facilities. The 'condensed' format and 15 minute matches added a new dynamic in the heat - managing energy levels sorted the wheat and we were chaffed come the final game! Predators clearly benefitted from the extra game time though being down and out after 10 minutes in several of their matches, but coming back for the wins.
Watching and playing Mondial is always a treat, irrespective of the result. As one of only two teams to put 2+ goals passed them, we did manage to leave with something to tell the grandchildren! The belligerent ThemApples hung in there against the relentless torrent of attacks making for compelling sporting finale.
Props to Westway also for a great showing in their backyard.
Not sure if there was an MVP award/vote - Mya's performance (and bloody knee) was pretty outstanding IMHO.
Thanks to teamies Joe and Andy for a much improved showing in our second tournament together as Cross Hares.
Went to Herne Hill Veldodrome for the first time on Sunday - an atmospheric venue crying out for a balearic-ly-chilled tournament someday. Got to meet and hang with the legendary 'super fun' Joe TS for the first time too... :)
