Web Posted - Sun Apr 02 2006 Compliments of the Barbados Advocate

LION Castle polo ground, St. Thomas, will be scorching today when the Diamonds International highgoal polo tournament concludes with two of the hottest games ever witnessed on the local circuit.
 

Featuring some of the worlds top players mixed in teams with the best of the local players, todays eagerly awaited double attraction will determine the overall champions, as well as the third and fourth place finishers.

The battle to decide the championship will bring together the unbeaten Royal Pavilion team, who will be striving to keep their unblemished record intact against Diamonds Black who lost once in three matches. Quite a thriller is also in the making in the clash to determine third and fourth places with a father, Sir Charles Williams, going up against his son Teddy Williams. Sir Charles will lead Diamonds White against the Teddy Williams led Piaget.

Joining Teddy Williams in the Piaget team will be Danny Atwell, Philip Tempro and Manuel Crespo. Sir Charles will have in Diamonds White line-up Argentines Fortunato Gomez-Romero and Federico Uribe and Englishman Jamie Dickson. Royal Pavilion continued their unbeaten passage into the final with an impressive victory 9 1/2 goals  six over the winless Diamonds White in their final preliminary match last Thursday at Lion Castle.

Englishman Chris Hyde, an international six-goal player, scored five goals to engineer the win for Royal Pavilion which started with half of a goal handicap advantage. He scored two in the second chukka and three in the third. Local player Jeff Evelyn, who played with much purpose was on target in the first chukka, while eight-goal player, J.J. Brane, the tournaments highest handicapped player, complied the goalspree scoring three goals  one in the third chukka and two in the fourth.

Diamonds White The goals for Diamonds White was shared among the professionals with Englishman Jamie Dickson, and Argentines Fortunato Gomez-Romero and Federico Uribe scoring two each. Diamonds Black, led by Kent Cole, were pushed to the limit, but held on to clinch victory by 7 1/2 goals  seven against Piaget in the opening game last Thursday evening. Pablo Crespin, an international five-goal player from Argentina, in one of his better performances paved the way for Diamonds Black victory scoring three goals.

Crespin was ably supported by Rafael Silva an international six-goal player from Uruguay, who scored two, while local player Alex Cole improving with every performance also made the scoresheet in the first chukka.

Argentine Pablo Crespin, an international four-goal player, pulled pace for the Piaget team scoring four goals, while local player Danny Atwell who has been playing quite well scored two. Philip Tempro another local player scored one. Matches scheduled for last Friday were postponed after the positions for the final and third place playoff were decided the previous day.

With players having two days to rest in preparation for todays showdown, thrills, spills and great furious action can be expected as players give of their best all in the effort to win the major prizes for their respective teams.

Kent Cole seeking to lead Diamonds Black to the championship will have in his line-up his son Alex Cole an international two-goal player, Rafael Silva and Argentine Pablo Crespin. Simon Holley will lead the Royal Pavilion team which will include Englishman Chris Hyde, local player Jeff Evelyn an international one-goal player and J.J. Brane.
