Rhys Cole's Dorsia will have their name on the wall of the Clubhouse at Guards Polo Club for the first time following their victory in the 16-goal Duke of Cornwall Trophy. They defeated Mo Sheikh's BHC Polo 9-7 in an exciting game on The Queen's Ground. The teams were all square, 2-goals apiece at the end of the first chukka, Dorsia pulled ahead in the second though thanks to their three goals to only one in reply from BHC Polo.
After the half-time break, Dorsia pulled further ahead, with another three goals to give them an 8-5 lead going into the fourth and final chukka. For the first time in this match BHC dominated, scoring two goals to only one in reply from Dorsia. However this rally came too late to change the outcome and Graham Dennis from Blacklock's Bookshop, sponsor of the day, presented the Duke of Cornwall Trophy to Dorsia.
The subsidiary for the Blacklocks Trophy was won by Nashama (received half a goal) as they defeated Godolphin 71/2 - 5. Nashama dominated this match, leading 4-2 at half time and then successfully pulling away in the second half to win the game.
