The first chukker started out strong for White Birch, with the first goal from White Birch sponsor Peter Brant and two goals, one from the field and a penalty two conversion, from Hilario Ulloa.

Northwood rallied in the second chukker with four combined goals by brothers Marcos and Tomas Garcia del Rio, to tie the game 5-all going into the third chukker. A goal from each team kept the score tied; however, another penalty two conversion from Ulloa, put White Birch in the lead, 7-6, going into the half. A scoreless fourth chukker for Northwood, provided White Birch the opportunity to gain a two-goal lead that they would maintain throughout the remainder of the game. Game high-scorer Hilario Ulloa was awarded MVP for his seven-goal contribution to the winning total. Machitos Lituania, owned and played by Mariano Aguerre of White Birch, received Best Playing Pony honors.
