As the score shows the 1st game between Arty and Sarosh Mitsuwa & Bulbul was a very closely fought for 3rd place. Arty started with 1 1/2 goals on handicap. The difference between the team scores throughout the match was rarely more than a goal or two. With 2 seconds to go in the game Arty was leading Sarosh Mitsuwa & Bulbul by 1/2 a goal with the score at 10.5 - 10 in their favour. However, Manupal Godara in great style snatched the game away from Arty leaving them without an opportunity to regain the lead. Sarosh Mitsuwa & Bulbul defeated Arty 11 - 10.5.
The 2nd game was the final between Sahgal Sud / Simbhaoli and ASC. Compared to the previous game this ended up being a very tame final. Till the end of the 2nd chukkar it was a close gamw with ASC leading 4-3. However, the Sahgal Stud father son combinations of Gaurav & Rajesh Sahgal and Angal & Gurpal Singh were no match for the ASC team with Simran Shergill, Gurtej Pandher, and NS Khera scoring at will. ASC defeated Sahgal Stud/Simbhaoli with a final score of 10 - 4.5.
