Flashback - Manuel Crespo (right) of the Courtesy team, attempts to play the ball while being pursued by players of then opposing Mango Bay team during their previous clash which Cockspur won 5 - 4.

WEATHER permitting today, fans could be treated to an action-packed evening of polo as the curtain comes down on the Barbados Open tournament sponsored by Colombian Emeralds.
Large crowds are expected at the Waterhall ground in St. James to witness the evening's double header which concludes the tournament presented in association with the Barbados Tourism Authority.
The matches were scheduled for last Sunday at Waterhall, but were postponed after rain made conditions unsuitable for play.
The break in play would have given may cause some teams to lose their momentum, but would gave players an opportunity to refresh themselves and rethink their strategy moving into today's matches.
Much attention will be focused on Cockspur team as they have played unbeaten in qualifying for the final. Now one win away from claiming the championship, Cockspur will be making every effort to ensure the opportunity for them to make their first claim on the championship does not slip away.
A well-organised unit, Cockspur has played with much purpose so far throughout the tournament. They pulled off a thrilling 7 - 5 victory over team Suzuki in the opening match of the tournament and will be cherishing thoughts of recording another victory over the Suzuki team.
Cole, playing off an international one-goal handicap, will have in his line-up his son Alex Cole playing off a two-goal handicap, along with international six-goal player Rafael Silva from Uruguay and Pablo Crespin a four-goal player from Argentina.
Silva and Crespin have been the mainstay of Cockspur team and they will again be spearheading the team's strategy in the bid today to bring the team its first success.
Cockspur, however, will have quite a big task ahead of them as Bayley and his Suzuki team, the defending champions, will be eager to avenge their earlier loss to Cockspur.
Also playing off a one-goal handicap, Bayley will have in his line-up the dynamic brothers Gaston and Max Moore playing off international six-goal and four-goal handicaps respectively. Philip Tempro, handicapped one goal, will complete the lineup.
Gaston Moore has been the live wire for Suzuki and combines well with Max, who has thrilled fans with his powerful striking of the ball.
Highland winless in three encounters will be seeking to salvage some measure of glory today and to avenge the 7 - 5 loss to Courtesy last Thursday.
Williams and his team of Jeff Evelyn, Richard Gooding and international six-goal player Malcolm Borwick from England, have been slow starters, but come on strong as the play progress to offer very serious challenges to their opponents.
Coutesy, under the captaincy of Sir Charles Williams boast of a very tough players in Manuel Crespo, Fortunato Gomez Romero (4) and Jamie Dickson (4). These three players are very difficult to contain, and have pushed themselves to the limit to keep their team in the game.
This was quite evident last Friday evening when they went under 6 - 8 to Suzuki in the semi-finals
