U.S. Open Final Sunday Will Conclude Season

The 2014 polo season at the International Polo Club Palm Beach comes to a conclusion on Sunday, April 20 with the final match of the 110th Maserati U.S. Open Polo Championships.

Last Sunday’s featured matches saw Crab Orchard (Peke Gonzalez, Magoo Laprida, Facundo Pieres and Paco de Narvaez) defeat Audi (Marc Ganzi, Gonzalito Pieres, Rodrigo Andrade and Gonzalo Del Tour) 13-12 and Lechuza Caracas (Victor Vargas, Nico Pieres, Juan Martin Nero and Nico Espain) defeat Coca-Cola (Gillian Johnston, Sebastian Merlos, Julio Arellano and Facundo Obregon) 12-7.

The Crab Orchard and Lechuza Caracas victories set up Wednesday’s semifinal matches: Valiente vs. Lechuza Caracas and Alegria vs. Crab Orchard. Results were not available at press time. The winners of those matches will meet at Sunday’s final match to see which team will claim American polo’s top prize.
