Talandracas 9 – 7 El Remanso
Hugues Carmignac’s Talandracas team took a step closer to the quarter-finals today with a win over El Remanso, their second victory of this competition. The grey and pink shirts were in the lead from the first (2-1) and never relinquished that lead.
At half-time they had a commanding 6-3 lead and looked as if they would continue to pile on the pressure on Charlie Hanbury’s team. El Remanso though shook things up a bit in the fourth, firing through three goals to only two from their opponents, the first time –in fact the only time – that they had scored more goals than Talandracas.
This improvement was short-lived though as both teams failed to register any goals in the fifth and with both teams scoring a goal apiece in the final chukka, victory went to Talandracas.
The match is available to view at www.guardspoloclub.com/guards-tv later tonight.
