The Land Rover International Polo Tournament continues, and this weekend the strongest teams proved their skills. After the fifth day of the tournament, Valiente and Dos Lunas – Banco Espirito Santo have passed directly to the semi-final of the Silver Cup Silex, while Las Monjitas and King Power have qualified for the subsidiaries.

Las Monjitas defeated Murus Sanctus by 14-7, the Novillo Astrada brothers being the stars of the match. Following this match, Valiente defeated Dos Lunas – Banco Espirito Santo by 10-9. The Thai team King Power was the winner against the British Halcyon Gallery by 15-11. Both teams had a very compact performance, with a great harmony between all players.

Day six of the Silver Cup Silex in the 43rd Land Rover International Polo Tournament 2014 has been the most intense one until now. On Saturday August 10th, RH played against Ellerston with a positive result for Ellerston that went directly to the semi-finals. Later, Ayala Polo Team, already previously classified for the next instance, competed against La Indiana. The last match against HB and Lechuza Caracas was the surprise of the weekend, when HB won by 10-8.

Valiente team of patron Bob Jornayvaz, with polo superstar Adolfo Cambiaso as a leader, has been until now one of the two highlighted teams, and of course promises to keep that position up. James Packer’s Ellerston, with the undefeatable duo of Gonzalo and Facundo Pieres, is without a question the other most promising team. The semi-finals of the Silver Cup Silex will be played on Tuesday, 12th August, with two matches taking place: Valiente vs. Ellerston, and Ayala vs. Dos Lunas.

The matches for the second instance of the Silver Cup Casablanca of medium handicap have also been played this weekend, get the results on: www.santamariapoloclub.com/tournaments/summer/international/fixture-results
