25 April Yale - Wicklow "The Herbst Computer Software Cup" Result
The Final of the USA-Ireland Match April 2002
Reported by Kim Mullahey from Polo
See all pictures
by Liz Brayboy
It was all to play for going in to the final game of the 11th Annual Winter
Season Tournament for the Winter Cup at Polo Wicklow. Ireland and USA each held
a win as Sunday’s final game line-out of Sean Reynolds, Siobhan Herbst, Martin
Iturraspe (Ireland), Eileen Flynn, Jennifer Costain, and Jim De Angeles with
alternate Liz Brayboy (USA) took their positions in the arena to begin six final
chukkas of fast, 8-goal arena polo.
USA drew first blood, but Siobhan Herbst quickly tied it up, then drew Ireland
ahead early in the first chukka. Umpire Chris Murphy had his work cut out for
him as hot-blooded power-player professional Jim De Angeles slammed through
a goal to tie it up again, then Ireland’s Sean Reynolds neatly took out Yale
University Polo Manager Eileen Flynn, leaving it open for Ireland professional
Martin Iturraspe to sscore his first goal of the final game. That goal wass
the first of many to earn him the honour of player of the match game, and the
title, “Mr. Mercury”, so like quicksilver was his flawless playing throughout
Iturraspe set out in the second chukka as he meant to finish the game, drawing
Ireland further ahead of USA WITH EACH GOAL. Siobhan Herbst backed him up, and
Sean Reynolds played strong defense, cleaning up lost balls and keeping them
for the dynamic Irish duo. An Irish foul helped USA, but not enough to catch
up with Ireland ahead on five goals to USA’s 2 at the end of the second chukka.
Ireland kept the pressure on in the third chukka, matching goal for goal
despite Eileen Flynn’s strong coaching and De Angeles’ powerful plays on goal.
The chukka closed with Ireland ahead on 8 goals to 5.
De Angeles opened the fourth chukka with a spectacular 50-yard goal. Ireland
matched that one again, then committed a series of fouls during the chukka that
USA could not cash in on as each free goal went wide of the mark. Iturraspe
shot one through, then De Angeles nailed a goal despite Iturraspe’s quicksilver
actions at chukka’s close.
Ireland took over the game during the fifth chukka and never looked back.
A short-lived American rally began with De Angeles’ bouncing-hit goal and ended
as first Iturraspe scored, then Herbst and Reynolds double-teamed a free-hit
to the goal. Iturraspe’s final-seconds-of-chukka goal put Ireland ahead on 17
goals to USA’s 8.
Herbst and Iturraspe flowed across the arena as sixth chukka play got underway.
Iturraspe scored, then chased the ball to the Irish goal after the throw-in,
then galloped it back to the American goal to score again. De Angeles scored
a high-flying free-hit after an Irish foul, then Iturraspe and Herbst teamed
up, but let a nice goal by De Angeles and Flynn through. Iturraspe and Herbst
finished up with one more goal as the final bell went. Ireland won on 21 goals
to USA’s well-earned 10, and the Winter Cup remains in Ireland – at least for
one more year!
