Tratok/Hesketh Polo team showed a commanding lead from the start of the second game with the opening goal from Santos Iriarte. The team worked in a 3.5 goal advantage by halftime which IFZA/Mahra Polo struggled to catch up to. However, the final chukker saw a goal from Jacinto Amadori and a steal from Khalaf Al Habtoor which lead Tariq Al Habtoor to score the 4th goal for IFZA/Mahra. However, the significant goal advantage that Tratok/Hesketh Polo had, was enough to secure the win for the team at 6.5 goals to 4.
