The Hong Kong Polo Team (HKPT) may have succumbed to a youthful Malaysia side last weekend in the Tempawan Cup, but certainly will return home with their heads held high.

While the HKPT struck first and later threatened a comeback, torrential rain brought the fixture to a premature end, with a final score of 9-4.5 in favour of the home side.

 

The outcome would have pleased the Malaysian guests-of-honour in attendance at the Royal Selangor Club.

Fortunately, the HKPT did not have to fly home empty-handed, with Matt O'Leary's exemplary display being recognised with well-earned MVP honours.

Despite the loss, HKPT's Kwan Lo saw much cause for optimism in his team's performance.

"Overall, we played well together with good communication, getting the ball through the Malaysian defence and and allowing us to score first," said Lo.

"The match had to be called off before the last chukka and half when we could have easily closed the gap."

 

Looking ahead, the HKPT will be travelling to the Singapore Polo Club from 17th-18th June for the SEA exhibition in hopes of a third successive victory. Go Hong Kong!
