Two teams encountered each other in the annual Giuliana Cup at the Costa Careyes Polo Club. The Cup is named after Giorgio Brignone´s daughter. Giorgio Brignone is the owner and founder of the polo club, located in the Mexican state Jalisco at the coast of the Pacific Ocean.

In team Chamela, two sisters – Gatsy and Maxime Moellhausen – played along with Hans Giebeler and Mane Yerena against team Careyes, which included mother and daughter – Angela and Anabel Colterjohn from Toronto, Canada – as well as a father and son duo – Giorgio and Giancarlo Brignone.

Play was intense and hard fought, but the local Moellhausen sister combination with the help of Giebeler and Yerena proved too strong for team Careyes. Finally team Chamela defeated the opposing team by 6-2. High scorer for the winning team was Hans Giebeler with 3 goals.
