Annual Pommel Horse Polo Match a Draw

Daisy, the retired pommel horse
The annual Pommel Horse Polo match between Wooton and Cowes was held Sunday at Wooton Bridge with both teams struggling valiantly to hold out for a draw. Wooton captain Neil Harcourt said "While Cowes has more experience we have newer pommel horses so we knew it would be close."

This is the tenth year that the match has taken place with all matches so far ending in a draw.

Umpire Javier Scarza explained that players are evenly matched, he knew it could be anyone's game when he bowled out the first ball between the players and their mounts.

  1. I'd really hoped Cowes would win this year, I had thirty quid at 250-1 on them to win. Another bloody draw.
