After a fantastic first day. Both teams had put themselves in a position to achieve a semi-final spot.
As the day went on LCC Brunswick finished their remaining league games with 1 win and 1 loss. This placed them into 3rd overall in their division and gave them a spot in the semi-final!!!
LCC Dukes had 3 games left to play and after some hard-fought matches achieved 3 out of 3 wins! This placed LCC Duke’s second overall in their division and into the semi-final as well!!
LCC Brunswick put up a hard-fought fight in their semi-final but unfortunately lost 4-2 placing them into the playoff for 3rd and 4th place in division 2.
LCC Duke’s semi-final was balanced on a knifes edge with both teams scoring 2 goals each to take it to the golden goal. After a few nervous moments, LCC Dukes managed to find that winning shot placing them into the final for Division 3.
LCC Brunswick were up first and dominated throughout their final game to achieve a 6-4 victory and securing 3rd place in division 2.
It was now time for LCC Dukes to play their final game. It was hard-fought end-to-end polo with the team giving it their all but alas it wasn’t enough, and the team lost 7-3 but secured second place in division 3.
