The 2018 Carlton and Keleen Beal 12 Goal Tournament Final turned out to be a rather one sided contest as Geoff Palmer and his Antelope polo team (Geoff Palmer, Santiago Trotz 5, Jared Sheldon 4, Remy Du Celliee Muller 3) outscored Danny Walker and Ben Soleimani’s Famers and Merchants Bank/RH Polo group (Ben Soleimani, Mariano Fassetta 5, Santiago Von Wernich 5, Alonso Cruz 1 – sub for injured Walker 2) by an average of one goal per chukker and cruised to a 14 – 9 victory.
Having to give up one goal at the start – based on handicap difference – Antelope won the opening throw-in and scored in the first 25 seconds. Famers & Merchants/RH got that back and actually led after the first period with the score in their favor at 2 – 1. Antelope exploded with five goals in the second to lead by three at 6 – 3. The scoring was even in the third chukker giving a score of 8 – 5 at the half.
Antelope counted three more in the fourth to only two for Farmers & Merchants/RH and the lead increased to four goals at 11 – 7. The fifth chukker was much of the same as Antelope continued to play a running game to score twice more and Farmers & Merchants/RH were not able to keep up and counted just one (13 – 8).
Scoring was even in the last frame to give the final count of 14 – 9.
Antelope scoring was led by Trotz with eight goals 
Based on his dominating open and influential play, Trotz was the unanimous choice as the MVP and his mare Pepper was selected as the Best Playing Pony.

Antelope Junior are victorious again in the 8 Goal

After an almost perfect January with the Coachella Valley Officer’s Cup victory, Grant Palmer and his Antelope Junior team (Grant Palmer, Carolyn Anier 1, Patrick Uretz 4, Jimmy Wright 3) continued that January run as they won the 2018 Carlton and Keleen Beal Cup 8 Goal Division. The win – once again – came at the expense of Virgil Kyle and Ryan Robertson’s Bush League foursome (Virgil Kyle, Ryan Robertson, Ulysses Escapite 4, Shane Rice 4).  Antelope Jr established a 6 - 4 lead at halftime but in true Bush League fashion they came back hard in the second half to briefly lead the game in the sixth, but Antelope Jr made sure to snatch the 11 - 10 win. Because of his ability to read situations and act accordingly, Wright was named as the MVP and Benny, owned and played by Escapite in the fourth was selected as the Best Playing Pony.

Pheasant Hollow claim 4 Goal Beal Cup
PHEASANT HOLLOW (4) – Debra Vermoch -1, Reg Whyte, Tim Rudy 3, Fellipe Sordelli 2 with Mia Bray substituting for Reg Whyte earlier in the tournament faced BLAZERS (4) – Pat Powell, Shannon Smull-Mendez -1, Kyle Fargey 3, Diego Cossio 2 in a very close match which that down to wire with a 7 - 6 result in favor of Pheasant Hollow. Sordelli, with his ability to step in and renew the Pheasant Hollow offence was selected as the Most Valuable Player to his team and Mirage, owned by Powell and played by Cossio, earned the title of Best Playing Pony.
