BARBADOS FOUGHT BACK from 3-0 down to defeat a touring South African polo team 5-4, clinching the first series between the two teams.

The teams entered Wednesday’s game at the Holder’s Polo Club with the series locked 1-1 and both were hoping to play their “A’ game.

Under cloudy skies, James Crowe got the tourists rolling by converting a 60-yard penalty.

Seventeen-year old James O’Sullivan, who impressed with his riding ability, added the second.

Three-goal handicap player Adam Deane had a good chance to open Barbados’ account when he was awarded a 60-yard penalty but he shot wide.

Johan Van Reenan, the Most Valuable Player at the Africa Cup in 2016, then scored the visitors’ third goal. (RG)
