The 2021 Gold Cup, the second of three 22-goal tournaments in the GAUNTLET OF POLO®, finished on Sunday, March 28, at the International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC) in Wellington, Florida. In the 2021 edition, nine teams were competing for the second leg of the GAUNTLET OF POLO® . The final was played on a hot, sunny day, with Scone producing one of their best performances of the season, defeating Tonkawa 13-10 on the Home of the U.S. Polo Assn – Field 1 to raise the USPA Gold Cup® and walk away with the $100,000 prize.
Scone asserted their offense at the beginning of the final, scoring seven of the first eight goals to leave Tonkawa trailing from behind throughout the game. The fast pace set by Scone resulted in four early penalty goals from Adolfo Cambiaso and Peke Gonzalez, adding to a strong open play performance from Poroto Cambiaso that ultimately allowed Scone to build and maintain their large lead. The trio, along with David Paradice, was able to turn their focus to defense after the offensive outburst, holding Tonkawa to just three first-half goals. With the victory, Adolfo Cambiaso captures his 15th USPA Gold Cup® title, but it may be one of the most memorable, playing alongside son Poroto for their first victory together at IPC.
