Played New Year’s Day at the newly renamed National Polo Center.

This came about since the US Polo Association has taken over and will be running the entire IPC Complex.

Led by 15 year old Rufino Merlos, the game’s MVP and his team mates Fran Elizalde, Louis Devaleix and Robi Bilboa, LaFe jumped out to a quick start and held off a young Patagones team.

The team was made up of Carlitos Gracida, Joaquin Avendano and two replacement players Michel Dorignac and Wesley Finlayson.

A strong second half comeback came up short with LaFe taking home the winners trophy with a final score of 12-10.
