WELLINGTON, Florida-April 9, 2017- Valiente plastered Coca-Cola17-12 as the U.S. Open Polo Championship® continued Sunday at the International Polo Club Palm Beach (IPC). Orchard Hill defeated Audi 12-8, and Flexjet took Travieso 11-9 in the 3 p.m. featured match on Engel & Völkers field.
In one of the most dominant offensive performances of the 2017 season, Valiente was an unstoppable force after Coca-Cola made a push early in the game. After a quick opening goal by Adolfo Cambiaso, Coca-Cola answered back with two straight goals. The first came from a smooth pass from Julian de Lusarreta that was finished off by Miguel Novillo Astrada, and the second on an amazing nearside neck shot from Julio Arellano with Cambiaso on his hip. However, after that it was all Valiente, who summarily scored 6 straight goals on 7 shot attempts, all from the field. Matias Torres Zavaleta scored once, Cambiaso added two more and Diego Cavanagh scoring his first 3 goals of the day to push the Valiente lead to 7-2.
