Lion Castle polo ground, St. Thomas, will be scorching today when the Diamonds International highgoal polo tournament


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. < Read more >

Diamonds Black are champions of highgoal polo in Barbados. They won the championship with an impressive victory 91D2 goals to 7 over Royal Pavilion last Sunday in an action-packed final of the Diamonds International 16-goal tournament played at Lion Castle polo ground in St Thomas, Barbados.
Diamonds Black did their sponsors proud to emerge victorious but had to fight down to the wire for a well earned victory after starting with 11D2-goal handcap advantage in the main attraction of the evenings double header.
The match was preceded by the subsidiary final between Diamond White and Piaget. Diamond White, under the captaincy of Sir Charles Williams, won the battle for third place crushing Piaget, led by his son Teddy Williams, eight goals to 31D2.

International five-goal player from Argentine, Pablo Crespin, in one of his most explosive performances, spearhead Diamond Black teams victory scoring six goals.

Crespin combined well with Rafael Silva an international six-goal player from Uruguay to dictate the teams strategy and received good support from captain Kent Cole and his son Alex Cole.

Diamond Blacks succes did not come easy. They were frequently under attack by the well organised Royal Pavilion united which boasted of two very skilful players Chris Hyde and J.J. Brane in the line-up.

Hyde an international six-goal player from England and Brane, the tournaments highest handicapped player with an international eight-goal handicap, both displayed brilliant stickwork in their efforts to penetrate Diamond Blacks defence.

Royal Pavilion made many dangerous raids on Diamond Blacks goal area, but while most of their goals were on the play, they failed to make good enough of their penalty shots. Hyde missed at least four 60-yard penalty shots.

Hyde, however, was the leading scorer for Royal Pavilion scoring four goals, while Brane scored three. < Read more >
