This was the last polo match of the Mumbai 2007-2007 Polo Season. It was quite a fast paced game and the spectators enjoyed the game.
Vishal Singh opened the account for the Hawks in the 1st chukkar. In the
second chukkar Lt Col Khera fed the ball to Kamran who converted for the
Thunderbirds. Vishal Singh again scored for the Hawks. At the end of the
2nd chukkar Hawks led 2 - 1. In the 3rd chukkar Mitesh converted a 40
yarder for the Hawks. Thunderbirds responded with a goal by Khera.
Mitesh made a good run towards the left side goal but was unable to score.
Khera once again scored for the Thunderbirds. The 3rd chukkar ended with Hawks
leading 4 - 3. In the last chukkar, Manupal easily converted a 30 yard
penalty for Thunderbirds. Vishal got a 60 yard penalty but the ball went
off a defender stick and across the sideline. Hawks were awarded a safety
and Vishal made no mistake. Thunderbirds got a foul less than 3 yards from
the goal and scored to tie the game at 5 goals each. With only 30 seconds
remaining the Thunderbirds got the ball back and tried to make a run towards the
goal but ran out of time. The game ended in a 5-5 draw.
