THE OBA CUP
It has been excitement galore since the beginning of the 13th edition of the Lagos International Polo Tournament 2013. It's like all the team came very well prepared and they weren't ready to allow any team push them over. From the little we have seen and even heard, most of the games have been packed out. Though this year's tournament is only half way done, the committee in charge of the 2013 edition should be given a well earned and well deserved pat on the back.

The very exciting games have come hard and full of energy, everyone has given a fabulous account of themselves. Those who rode and played and even those who were mere spectators/supporters gave it their all.  We have accounts of how things have gone the past few days, garnished with a few action pictures for your viewing pleasure. 


Addo Ismail scored three of his side’s goals as Kano Ibah upstaged Lagos Ericsson 8-5 to win the Dansa Cup at the Tournament. 

The last final of the first part of the double-phased tournament which will resume on Wednesday saw Tavia Trojan beat Goodfellows/Ark 5 -4 to retain the Lagos Open Cup with Santiago Cernadas producing a man of the match performance for the Trojan.

Defending champions Ericsson rallied from a goal deficit to lead 2-1 after Damien Duncan replied twice following Murtala Aliyu’s opening goal from a 40-yard penalty.

Duncan broke away from the roll-in of the second chukka, but could not connect his shot at the vital area thus allowing Aliyu to clear. Tade Oyinlola made a last-ditch effort to clear Ismail’s goal-bound shot on goal, but it was given as it had already crossed the line as Ibah drew level at 2-2.

Aliyu followed up with a missed 60 yard penalty and when a similar situation was presented to Ericsson, Jamilu Umar had his shot deflected off the goal by Ismail. Aliyu and Ismail then scored in quick succession to give Ibah a 4-2 lead heading into the third chukka.

Halifa Ibrahim converted a spot hit to give Kano a healthy 5-2 lead and the gap between the sides was widened further as Addi Ibrahim tapped in from a Nura Shamaki’s shot for 6-2 at the end of the third chukka. AbdulMumuni Musa and Duncan scored within a minute, midway into the last chukka but Halifa profited from a missed clearance by Umar to score while the same player’s goal moments later proved to be an icing on the cake. Umar had before the costly error scored his side’s fifth goal.

In the day’s first match, Lagos Polo Club President Habeeb Fasinro led Edozie Onwuli, Bowale Jolaosho and Elias Kodahy to beat Team B T J Saro, Hassan Fayaad, Yemo Alakija and Ed Higginbotham 5-3 to win the Veterans and Kids Cup.
