Team Bel Air Plays the Pacific Coast Arena Tournament at the OC Polo Club

Team Bel Air at the OC Polo Club

It was a wonderful opening weekend at the Pacific Coast Arena Polo Tournament hosted this month at the OC Polo Club.  Team Bel Air played a strong and hard game played by Brooke, Jenn, and Lauren, against the Wild Things.  The first chukkar started off with a quick goal from the Wild Things, a strong defense from Team Bel Air was just not enough to catch up with the opponents.  In the second chukker, Brooke made a wonderful two point shot to even the score that the Wild Things had on the Blue and Gold girls!

By half time, it was anybody’s game!  Bel Air fought hard but the Wild Things slipped in and stole the lead.  The Wild Things were up, even with some amazing plays including two goals from Jenn and some amazing defensive moves by Luaren.  Although victory was had by the Wild Things, Bel Air took home the “Best Playing Pony Award” for Nika ridden by Brooke.  A well deserved award for the large grey mare as she was dubbed the “Brick House” of rideoffs!

The next Pacific Coast Arena Polo Tournament will be hosted by SDPC in Del Mar on July 7th.
