Legation Cup:
Texas vs. Great Britain

presented by

André Clouet

It was the last day of March, but the first day of polo season in Houston! The Houston Polo Club was excited to host the 2019 Legation Cup Final between Texas and Great Britain.

 
Will Emerson and Joe Fitzsimons

The Honorable Charles Cadogan was the first to score of the game, successfully converting two open goal penalties to give Great Britain a 2 goal lead going into halftime.
The crowd walked the field at halftime, enjoying complementary champagne, stomping divots, and looking over the Ford Trucks from Bill Fick Ford, Land Rovers Land Rover Houston Central, and Porches from Porsche of West Houston that were on display. After the half-time festivities came to a close, the teams were back on the field, and the crowd watched in anticipation for what the second half would bring.
 
Will Emerson and Bryan Middleton
Bryan Middleton from team Texas, came out firing the third chukker, scoring three unanswered goals on the Best Playing Pony of the match, a chestnut mare named Max. The crowd cheered the Texas team on, as the fourth and final chukker began. Texas players Billy Mudra and Paul Hobby put a goal each on the board to extend their lead to 5 to 2 in the middle of the last chukker. However team Great Britain was not ready to throw in the towel just yet.  Honorable Charles Cadogan converted a safety and Will Emerson found the goal from the field to bring their team within 1. The English had 30 seconds to tie the game from a knock in, but their play was interrupted by the Texas' team solid defense effort and the clock ran out with Texas coming away with a 5 to 4 win over Great Britain.
