Budweiser, coming off a win over Global Mortgage last week, tried to make it two-straight, but settled for a 3-3 tie with Coldwell Banker Realty at the Kaua‘i Polo Club matches.
Bobbie Love, providing the results for the KPC, said the day was full of outstanding polo among the talented riders.
Ronny Tongg, riding the No. 3 pivot position for Bali Hai, finished by scoring three goals.
Andy Busch, Tongg’s counterpart for Budweiser, finished the day with two goals.
Peter Cameron added the tying score for Budweiser.
Love said the two new players from San Diego provided spectators with entertainment with their “riding off,” a technique where riders use their horses and bodies to push the enemy off the line of play.
Nick Galindo and Doug Blumenthal were introduced to the KPC arena during last weekend’s opening day games.
With no safety, or other penalties, the game went by quickly and with good sportsmanship.
Polo games continue Sunday at the ‘Anini polo fields with gates opening from 1:30 p.m. and the match starting at 3 p.m.
