Newport Polo: USA victorious over England in one most competitive matches of the 2018 season


In one of the most competitive matches of this year’s Newport Polo Season, the home team, USA, squeaked out a victory over visiting England, 10 to 9 on Saturday.

USA took a quick 5 to 0 lead, before England, playing on borrowed horses, began chipping away at the lead, but never able to do more than a brief tie. A year ago, England also had a burst of scoring, but in that match it was enough to overtake Newport in the final seconds.

When Newport/USAss plays international opponents, the opponents borrow horses from the Newport Club for the match.
