Cambiaso’s third goal of the day came on a broken knock-in by Orchard Hill as the 10-goaler tied the game at 4-4. The final goal of the chukker came on an incredible belly-shot by Polito Pieres just off the end-line, giving the 5-4 lead to Orchard Hill.

Third chukker goals from Cambiaso and Cavanagh were accompanied by shutout defense as Orchard Hill struggled to break through the Valiente defenders. At the end of the first half, Valiente found themselves defending a fragile 6-5 lead.

Matias Torres Zavaleta extended the Valiente lead to two goals, 7-5, in the fourth period with his first goal of the game. A penalty goal from Facundo Pieres kept Orchard Hill close, but it was Valiente with the lead, 7-6.

Valiente wasted little time pressing the attack in the sixth as Cambiaso took the opening throw-in and raced down the field for another goal, 13-8. Facundo Pieres scored on a penalty shot and Polito Pieres added a goal from the field to make it 13-10. A goal from the field from Facundo Pieres had Orchard Hill within two goals of the lead, 13-11, but time was working against them.
