Well, that was a blast!
Cambridge have been very busy over the last few months constructing an awesome polo court:
Impressive, right? Well whilst grafting away constructing the court they also found the energy to organise their annual Cambridge tournament, which this year was titled: “The Cambridge Indoor Open 2011“. Spring Break were one of 30 teams to register and had an awesome time, we really felt we managed to hone our tactics as the tournament progressed and loved the opportunity to play so many non-London teams.
We were seeded in 1st place after the first day of games and fought our way to 4th during Sunday’s double elimination knockout, Nice Touch kept us from reaching third (they put us into the loser’s bracket and narrowly beat us a second time to put us out for good). DTGP (Paris) took second and Cosmic took first, the final was intense with some great polo on display from each team (especially from Snoops who was particularly impressive and scored most of the goals)!
Spring Break now feel in much better shape for the impending London League Playoffs, let’s see if we can topple the likes of Nice Touch (polo nemesis) and Cosmic, can’t wait! Big thanks again to Cambridge for putting on such an awesome event, we’ll be back up to the court soon for some more indoor training. Here’s how Spring Break got on in more detail (on the second day):
- Spring Break 5-0 Polo Erectus
- Spring Break 1-4 Nice Touch (We lost our heads in this game.)
- Spring Break 5-1 ASBO
- L’Quiche 1-2 Spring Break
- Fenboy Three 2-4 Spring Break
- Nice Touch 2-1 Spring Break (An awesome game decided by a last second goal.)
We’ll upload some photos and videos of the tourney over the next few days…
