Eleven players stepped into the irons to kick off the USPA Middle School League at Bloomfield Polo Club in Saratoga Springs, New York, this past weekend. Bloomfield Purple’s Maegan Byrne struck first for her team in the round robin. Bloomfield Yellow kicked into gear, with a goal from Adam Yachkouri and three tallies from teammate Jack Whitman, including one from the penalty line to end the chukker 4-1. Bloomfield Purple’s Chris Veitch opened second chukker scoring with a penalty conversion of his own, then traded field goals with Bloomfield Yellow’s Whitman and Yachkouri to end the first game of the tournament 6-4 in favor of Bloomfield Yellow.

Bloomfield Yellow faced Bloomfield Blue in the second game of the tournament with Whitman quick to open the scoring. Bloomfield Blue’s Connelly Cashen evened the score, but Whitman found his mark again to keep Bloomfield Yellow’s lead. Bloomfield Blue’s Carolina Lott-Diamond tied the game before the horn sounded ending the first chukker 2-all. Daisy Scherer and Whitman combined for three goals to give their team the lead again, but Bloomfield Blue was not about to give up. An assist from Skyler Knott led to a Cashen goal while another from teammate Mary Duncan pulled Bloomfield Blue within one goal 5-4. Scherer’s hot stick sunk a final goal for Bloomfield Yellow to secure their win 6-4.

Bloomfield Blue and Bloomfield Purple met for the final two chukkers of the weekend. Cashen scored the only goal for Bloomfield Blue in the first chukker and with the help of teammates Lott-Diamond and Duncan, kept Bloomfield Purple off the scoreboard. The second chukker proved to be in favor of Bloomfield Purple, with Byrne and Veitch combining for seven goals to Duncan’s single penalty conversion. With the help of teammate Amelia Safran’s defensive skills, Bloomfield Blue took the final game, 7-2.

Connelly Cashen, Mary Duncan, Chris Veitch and Jack Whitman were elected to the tournament All-Star team, and Jack Whitman was selected for the Sportsmanship Award. Bobaletta, played by Meagan Byrne was chosen as the tournament’s Best Playing Pony.

USPA Middle School League continues this weekend at Powers Polo School in East Palestine, Pennsylvania.
