The Star (Kenya) - - Sports - BY CONSOLATA MAKOKHA/

‘Space and Style’ won the 2016 Sam­sung Kenya In­ter­na­tional six-goal polo tour­na­ment that was staged at the Nairobi Polo Club over the week­end. Royal Salute fin­ished se­cond.

The James Mur­ray-cap­tained ‘Space and Style’ com­prised of Ge­off Morely ( 1 ), Jenny Camm ( 0 ) and Chloe Spo­erry ( 0 ) ended the tour­na­ment un­beaten, win­ning two of their matches and draw­ing one. The tour­ney was closely con­tested with win­ners be­ing de­ter­mined by frac­tions (F) on 10 of the 12 matches played.

Played over three days (Fri­day, Satur­day and Sun­day), and on a round robin for­mat, Space and Style’ won their first game 4F-4 against Sa­mu­rai. They also gar­nered a slim 6F-6 win over Royale Salute and drew 6-6 against Sam­sung on Sun­day.

Af­ter los­ing their first game 4F-5 to Royal Salute on Fri­day, Sam­sung (Buster Macken­zie 5, Jonathan Stich­bury 1, Harry Stich­bury 0 and Nikki Ngugi) failed to beat ‘Space and Style’ to de­fend the ti­tle.

Although the game flowed up and down the field in the duel pit­ting ‘Space and Style’ and Sam­sung, few balls crossed the back line be­tween the goal posts.
