Amer Randhawa Cup Concludes in Tancredi Minerals Victory

Sunday the 16th of June saw Maiz Dulce play Tancredi Minerals in the final of the inaugural Amer Randhawa Cup, introduced this season in memory of young polo player Amer Randhawa who tragically lost his life at the end of 2023.  

Antonio Sorzana (0) rode out at 1 for Maiz Dulce, with Hazel Jackson (2) subbing in for Lottie Lamacraft at 2, Alfie Hyde (3) at 3, and Will Emerson (5) at Back. For Tancredi Minerals Orson Clarke (-1) wore the number 1 shirt, Ben Sim (1) at 2, Leon Donoso (3) at 3, and 6-goaler Felix Esain at Back.  

The hard-fought game saw amazing play from both teams with Tancredi Minerals ultimately taking the title over Maiz Dulce 4 ½ goals to 2. The first chukka saw equal play by both teams with an opening penalty goal for Hyde, quickly reciprocated by Esain. In the second Esain further increased Tancredi Minerals’ goal tally by scoring a 40-yard penalty to put them up 2 ½ – 1 going into the second half. 

The third chukka saw no change with an exceptional performance by Esain to complete his hattrick of goals for Tancredi Minerals, but Maiz Dulce wasn’t accepting defeat with a brilliant goal in response by Jackson to keep them in contention. However, Tancredi Minerals continued to show their impressive form in the final chukka, with an outstanding goal by young Leon Donoso to leave Tancredi Minerals victorious. 

The Amer Randhawa Cup was collected by a grateful Orson Clarke, generously provided and presented by Amer’s Mother Shon Randhawa, in front of Amer’s family and friends. The Most Valuable Player prize was awarded to Felix Esain, due to his outstanding efforts in the match. And the Amer Randhawa Best Playing Pony Rug was presented to ‘Indiana’ owned and played by Leon Donoso.
