Team Digicel once again proved to be the better team in last Sunday’s exciting final of the Damiani/Colombian Emeralds-sponsored Barbados 10-Goal Open Polo Tournament played at the Clifton Polo grounds in St Thomas.  
The telecommunication giants netted six goals in a workmanlike display past the defense of their FirstCaribbean opponents who could only manage four scores by the end of regulation time. 
The popular St Thomas venue usually always attracts large crowds, and Sunday was no different.  Fans and supporters came out in their numbers and were treated to two matches of the highest quality before partying well into the night.
Jack Kidd, who has been having an outstanding season, scored all four goals for FirstCaribbean which included Marc Atwell, Richard Gooding and Teddy Williams. 
However, on this occasion he was second best due to the accuracy of former England captain Tom Morley, who scored five of his Digicel goals. He had good back-up support from Jamie Dickson Oliver Williams and George Gemmel, with the latter  scoring the sixth goal.
The preceding subsidiary final featuring Rugby and Bajan Services was much more one-sided, with Bajan Services winning 5-2. 
Wayne Archer, who is also having a dream season, scored a hat-trick of goals in the third chukka to knock out what little fight was left in Rugby, who were finally able to open their scoring in the third chukka with a goal from Jonny Coddington.  
Adam Deane got his Bajan Services side off to a flyer with two early goals before Wayne archer produced his magic in the third chukka.
