Copa de Ouro goes Prata Audi's way

Team defeats Itanhangá Nescafé Duo 11-10 at Sao José

Copa de Ouro goes Prata Audi's way

Prata Audi Polo Team, by Melito Cerezo

The 2012 Copa de Ouro final was played at Brazil's San José venue on Saturday, June 2nd. Eight teams with handicaps ranging between 19 and 22 goals took part in the tournament.

Itanhangá Nescafé Duo (winners of zone B) and Prata Audi (zone A) played the deciding match, with the second-named team emerging victorious and lifting the cup. Young Pedro Zacharias (who played for Brazil's national team in the recent low-handicap 2011 World Polo Championship, at San Luis, Argentina, and in the 2012 Copa de las Naciones, at Palermo) scored the winning goal by converting a late penalty, for the 11-10 final result.

And thus, a new edition of this increasingly popular tournament came to an end, with some of the continent's leading names taking part, such as Argentina's Juan Ignacio Merlos and Juan Agustín García Grossi, and Brazil's Rodrigo Ribeiro de Andrade, Olavo Novaes, Joao Paulo Ganon and Pedro Zacharias.
