Basterra triple earns Campo comeback win

A Jose Basterra-inspired Club de Campo won the Spanish RANKING MATCH battle 4-2 over Real Club de Polo to earn fifth place overall from EHL Men with Polo ending equal seventh.

Polo began on the front foot with Jaime Ibran’s brilliant overhead volley from a corner rebound. Marc Reyné added the next from a pitch length move, created by a long overhead out of defence for 2-0 inside the first quarter.

Basterra started the comeback in the 22nd minute when he bundled in from close range and he added a simple finish for 2-2 just before half-time.

And they took the lead for the first time just before the end of Q3 from a penalty corner from Basterra. Thijs van Pelt dove onto a left-wing ball from Ignacio Abajo.
