Success for Druids Lodge and Silverwood in the second Fireside of the season!

The curtain raiser for the second Fireside event of the season was the new Sugar Bowl Trophy and we were pleased to welcome a Royal Air Force team to the arena to take on the home team. The RAF edged ahead in the first chukka but a strong second chukka for Druids Lodge, aided by some two pointers from George Fraemohs, put them ahead at half time. The RAF began to stage a comeback in chukka 3 but they couldn’t quite catch the home team, all of whom have been playing a lot of arena polo this season and the score at the final bell was 15 – 11 to Druids Lodge.

Black Aces got off to a strong start in the 8 goal Watersfield Trophy final with the score 6-2 in their favour at the end of chukka 1. Silverwood found their groove in chukka 2 with Robin Ormerod and George Shelton notching up seven goals between them and some strong marking from Hayley Hyde-Andrews kept Maurice somewhat under control. The score sat at Black Aces 10 – Silverwood 9 at half time.

Silverwood came out all guns blazing after half time with goals flying in in quick succession. Black Aces also kept up the pressure and were only a goal behind in the final chukka for a time before Silverwood opened the lead up again, the final score Silverwood 19 – Black Aces 16.
