In the first SHAUGAN CUP semifinals, Roma Polo Club beat Grand Champions Polo Club by 8-5 goals, and the Italian team secured first place in the finals.
The game started relatively open, with both teams getting on the scoresheet very quickly, with a slight advantage for Roma Polo Club at the end of the first chukker, 2-1 goals.
In the second chukker, Roma started to run away with the score, and it took Grand Champions Polo Club two chukkers to find their rhythm. At the start of the third chukker, the American team was down by four goals, and Grant Ganzi very quickly scored twice to close the gap.
Roma Polo Club had a one-goal lead at the end of the fourth chukker, 6-5 goals, and two goals by Juan Jauretche in the last chukker sent the Italian team to the final.
The other semifinal witnessed the victory of El Rincón Polo José Ignacio against Polo Club Mühlen by 14-4 goals, the highest scored game until now.
El Rincón Polo José Ignacio dominated the game from the first ball and Polo Club Mühlen couldn’t find the way to get into the game, struggling to score their first two goals in the first half. The Uruguayan team claimed a clear victory to place them in the final of the SHAUGAN CUP.
