• McLaren Cup - Day 5

    UAE Polo wins and joins the battle of the semifinals qualifying round 

    UAE Polo achieved a vital win against Bin Drai by 7 goals to 6 in today ́s match for the six day of action for the McLaren Cup, the opening trophy of the Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series 2018, 18- goals handicap competition, at the Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club. 

    With this victory, HH Sheika Maitha Al Maktoum ́s team joins the battle for the remaining three places in the semifinals. With today ́s first two points, UAE Polo equals Habtoor, Wolves, Bin Drai and Zedan. 

    Tomorrow ́s last qualification matches will clear up the situation but there ́s still a lot to decide. A victory will put Wolves, who plays against Mahra (already classified) in semifinals, the same for Habtoor or Zedan, which play against each other. Meanwhile, UAE and Bin Drai will be expectant of what happens. 

    Match Progression 

    UAE: 1-2/2-2/ 4-2/ 6-5/ 7-6 

    Top scorer of the match: Polito Pieres (UAE) with 5 goals. 

    The McLaren Cup will continue tomorrow with a double action day at the Al Habtoor Polo Club & Resort that will start at 2 pm with Wolves facing Mahra in field 1 followed by Habtoor Polo against Zedan in field 2.
