 The main match on Sunday was played by Travieso and Pilot where Travieso led the entire game, which broke for halftime at a score of 7-3, after Merlos punched in three consecutive goals, two on breakaways, before executing a 30-yard penalty shot with 47 seconds remaining. The Ecuador-based Travieso extended its lead to six goals twice in the fourth chukker, before Pilot mounted a comeback, which led to a close finish by the end of the sixth.

“I’m happy about it,” said Merlos. “This is a brand new team and it turned out really well.”

Ten-goaler Facundo Pieres, considered one of the best polo players in the world, converted five penalty shots before his brother Gonzalito Pieres added another goal to cut the margin 11-10 with 3:03 left in the game. Merlos countered with a 60-yard penalty conversion with 2:24 left to give Travieso a two goal advantage.

Facundo Pieres’ 60-yard penalty shot with 1:39 remaining sliced the lead to 12-11, but Pilot could not get a shot off from the ensuing throw-in as Merlos stole the ball and powered down the field to clinch the victory with a nearside goal as the clock slowly ticked away with 28 seconds left.

Tomas Garcia del Rio added two goals while Tony Calle and Teo Calle added one goal apiece for Travieso.
