Cartier Queen's Cup Day 4 24th May 2024

Sujan Indian Tigers 10 – 9 Park Place

La Dolfina Great Oaks 10 – 9 Ferne Park

Dubai 14 – 6 King Power

Another packed day of high-goal which began with an impressive victory for Sujan Indian Tigers. They defeated the hugely experienced Park Place squad 10-9 on the Castle Ground at Flemish Farm. Park Place dominated the first few minutes and were up 3-0. Sujan’s patron, Jaisal Singh, decided to put a stop to that and fired through two back-to-back goals. Juan Martin Zubia added his own contribution and the teams were now level, 3-3, at the first bell. Both teams then traded goals for the next five chukkas, getting ahead by one only for the other side to level. Then with just a minute left on the clock and the scores now reading 9-9 Zubia was awarded a spot hit. Cool under pressure he delivered the perfect pass to Matt Perry who managed to escape his minders and fired through the winner.

La Dolfina Great Oaks lost their first game by just one goal but this time the advantage was in their favour. They kept their cool against a continually improving Ferne Park to win this match 10-9. Ferne Park, playing in their first Queen’s Cup game of 2024, had not had the best starts as injury had forced them to change personnel at the last minute. Cristian Laprida and Pelon Stirling are both injured and so into the team came talented subs Benjamin Panelo and Fran Elizalde respectively. Both players slotted into Vere Harmsworth’s team with ease and helped keep Ferne Park in contention in the latter stages of this match.

The final match of the day was a demonstration of 10-goal excellence by Camilo Castagnola, who was on fire for Dubai. This big-hitting superstar, who is still only 21, produced some huge shots to goal that seemed almost impossible. Brilliantly backed up by his equally talented team-mates, Dubai delivered a convincing 14-6 victory over King Power. A secret of Dubai’s success today was some excellent man marking. Both Nico Pieres and Pablo MacDonough struggled to find space to shine for King Power. Dubai impressed in their first game on Tuesday and did not disappoint again today.
