The USA Team came out swinging and led 7-2 after the first chukker. They continued the attack in the second and were ahead 13-6 at the half. England rallied in the third and added five to their tally and in the fourth USA closed the door and finished at 21-17. Tommy Biddle was the master in the match and, as the player with the highest arena handicap in the world, showed his skill to be unmatched. He blended seamlessly with his younger teammates Will and Patrick. The English were excellent hosts, providing great horses and a first class venue for the event.
“We’re very proud of our team, who worked together to win such a close game,” said Peter Rizzo, CEO of United States Polo Association. “We’re also grateful to the English team’s hospitality.”
