FINAL: The first leg of the 2022 Gauntlet of Polo® and the C.V. Whitney Cup® concluded on Sunday on the U.S. Polo Assn. Field 1 at the International Polo Club Palm Beach with Park Place and Scone meeting in a rematch of last year’s final. Behind a dominant second half, Park Place surged into the lead to claim the 14-11 victory and defeat Scone in the final for the second consecutive year.

A match-up between the tournament’s best offense in Park Place and the best defense in Scone, it was the determined attack of the defending champions which proved to be the difference in the second half. Shooting 53% on 17 shot attempts, Park Place won the battle in open play, while matching Scone’s five penalty goals. Hilario Ulloa was exceptional for Park Place, converting all three of his Penalty 4 attempts to finish with a game-high eight goals, while Britos contributed four goals as the other half of the formidable duo. Holding the father-son duo of Adolfo and Poroto Cambiaso scoreless over the final five chukkers, Park Place outscored Scone 9-3 in the second half to retain possession of the C.V. Whitney Cup®.
