- Polo Club du Chantilly - Paris, FRANCE
Team spirit !
High goal FINALS 22.09.2019, French Open - Spanish team ' Marques de Riscal' first finalist.
Spanish Polo team MARQUES DE RISCAL, who plays the FRENCH OPEN high goal tournament first time ever this year, has been evolving with the same players since the beginning of this summer 2019, that was seen in Deauville - Coupe d Or etc., which has strengthened its cohesion over tournaments, showed Sunday afternoon against the defending champion, SAINTE-MESME, that team spirit was the best weapon in a polo match.
A perfect understanding between players, each in his place, solidarity in defence where they made their opponents suffer, and, eventually, a very large victory.
SAINTE-MESME sometimes seemed a little bit lost on the main field of Chantilly Polo Club. Robert Strom, his French 5-goaler, was experiencing an unusual lack of realization in his penalties. Three or four shots, which if they had been transformed, could have given some confidence to his teammates. But when it won’t… In front of a good public, in a summer atmosphere, a quasi Andalusian heat, MARQUES DE RISCAL, won its ticket for the final of this 19th Open de France.
SAINTE-MESME still has a joker in hand: the qualification remains possible in case of victory next Friday against MARQUARD MEDIA. Five days to recover...
