Dodging the raindrops in eastern Ohio, the Darlington Polo Club and Powers’ Polo School teams faced off in the first Middle School Tournament of 2016. Powers’ Polo School’s Ben Crivella had the hot stick at the beginning of the game with three goals. Phenomenal defensive work by teammates Ella Waterson and Grace Pritchard kept the Darlington team scoreless in the first chukker. Darlington’s Ethan Seikel and Seth Goehring closed the gap with a goal apiece in the second chukker to bring Darlington within one at halftime.

Crivella’s goal from the field, and a rocket shot from the penalty line, increased the Powers’ Polo School lead to three in the third chukker. Seikel snuck in a goal to bring Darlington within two before the horn. Shirley Horvath’s goal for Darlington had her team within striking distance, but Crivella put the game out of reach with a final score for Powers’ Polo School ending the game (6-5).
