61 Cavalry-RVC win

A combined 61 Cavalry and Remount Veterinary Corps (RVC) team edged past Army Service Corps and Indian Navy Polo and Equestrian Club (INPEC) 6.5-6 in the eight-goal Bangalore Polo Cup, which is the final leg of the Bangalore Polo Season, at the Agram ground on Friday.

The tournament features players with high handicaps from different teams who combine to represent a single team. ASC and INPEC came into the match with a handicap of plus six while 61 Cav and RVC were handicapped at plus five, thereby gaining a 1.5 goal advantage.

61 Cav and RVC added to this advantage by racing to a three-goal lead with the scores at 4.5-0 at the end of the first chukker after Dfr Vijay Singh, Capt Aman Singh and Maj Arjun Patil scored.

From there on, ASC and Indian Navy put up a valiant effort and scored six goals in the next two chukkers while conceding just once. Cdr Akhil Sirohi scored three goals, Maj Prithvi Singh found the target a couple of time and Col NS Khera got a solitary goal. Aman Singh scored the only goal for the 61 Cav-RVC team leaving the scores at 6-5.5 in favour of ASC-INPEC. It was Aman again who did the star turn for while scoring the only goal of the fourth chukker to give 61 Cav-RVC a narrow win by half a goal at the final bugle.
