Big Polo second half sees off CAM 92

Real Club de Polo delighted their home crowd in the second half to get the best of CAM 92 and reach the KO8 where they will face Holcombe for a FINAL8 spot.

It was a tense first half in which les Camistes had the stronger of the openings but could not breakthrough, 0-0 at the midway point.

But Polo found their rhythm in the second half and controlled the third quarter. They went in front from a powerful Marc Recasens penalty corner drag-flick a minute into the second half and they were flying when Anton Borras finished off a rapid turnover move.

James Liddiard did breathe life into the CAM challenge when his deflection bounced in off a defender’s body, cutting the gap to 2-1 with nine minutes to go.

But another Recasens bullet from a corner put more daylight between the teams and Alex Reyné slotted into an open goal to complete a 4-1 victory.
