After La Indiana claimed the first spot in the 2021 C.V. Whitney Cup®, three spots remained when the third round of play began on Saturday. Coca-Cola used a strong final two chukkers to capture the 13-10 victory over Santa Clara, while Park Place’s defense proved to be the difference in their 10-6 win against Cessna at the International Polo Club Palm Beach.
The first game of the day featured a back-and-forth match where each team held the lead after three chukkers, but it was Coca-Cola who finished the game on a 7-3 run to defeat Santa Clara. Shooting at goal 30 times, Coca-Cola produced consistent offense but shot just 27% with Santa Clara’s Felipe Vercellino keeping his team in the game with seven goals. Coca-Cola’s Nico Pieres responded with eight goals of his own, while the team effectively used Gillian Johnston in the front of the game to complete the 13-10 victory.
