Americans beat England’s winning streak in the Bryan Morrison Memorial Cup

LAKE WORTH, Fla. - March 17, 2014 - PRLog -- The American team won against the England team at the Bryan Morrison Memorial Cup this past Saturday, March 1st, at the All England Polo Club in Hickstead. The first American team to win the Bryan Morrison trophy, the USA team featured 10 Goaler Tommy Biddle, 5 Goaler Patrick Uretz and 4 Goaler Will Tankard. The English side was made up of the first Father-Son team to compete in an international test match: 9 Goaler Chris Hyde and his 3 Goal son, 16 year old Jack Hyde. They were joined by 7 Goaler Pete Webb.

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.”

The Bryan Morrison Memorial Cup is named after the late Bryan Morrison, a music businessman who represented the likes of Pink Floyd and polo player who was president of the Ham Polo Club in London before founding his own club, The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club.
