It’s All On The Line This Sunday: Ellipse Will Battle Altaris For The 2021 East Coast Gold Cup!
Get ready. It’s the Final of the East Coast Goal Cup and the last match before our mid-summer break coming up this Sunday at Greenwich Polo Club.
Today was an exciting day of high-goal polo action at the club, with both semi-finals being played to decide Sunday’s matchup. In the day’s first semi-final, Ellipse took on White Birch Farm in a rematch of their earlier E.C Gold Cup meeting, where Ellipsis earned an overtime win. However, today’s match would be settled in regulation, once again favoring Ellipse. Despite an 8 goal performance by White Birch’s Pablo Llorente, Ellipsis took the win 10-9 to punch their ticket for Sunday’s final. Lucas Diaz Alberdi and Toli Ulloa both scored four goals apiece for Ellipsis en route to the victory.
In the second semi-final, Altaris could not be stopped after taking an early lead over IGEA. The team in maroon never looked back, scoring a combined 12 goals to best IGEA 12-9. The leading scorer of the match was Lerin Zubiaurre, who scored 7 goals to highlight the Altaris offense. Gringo Colombres was the top scorer for IGEA, making 5 goals alongside Juan Redlich with 2 goals.
This Sunday Ellipsis vs Altaris is sure to be a very competitive match between the two hot high-goal teams. We will feature the E.C Gold Cup final at 3:00 pm on the famous Sunday field at Greenwich Polo Club, complete with all the fast ponies, divot stomping, The Pony Bar, and followed by our ever-popular after polo Asado party by The Cup Bearer.
