On Sunday, July 28th, I captained the USA team against England in the Westchester Cup at Guards Polo Club.  After 16 years of being played in the USA, we were excited to return the series to the UK, where thousands of people came out to watch the match.

The game was intense and filled with excitement. We were tied 11-11 and went to over-time.  Polito Pieres almost made a winning goal, but his shot was wide and England made the tie-breaking goal to take the Westchester Cup. All was not lost though, the game was well played and I couldn’t have been more proud of my team.

After the game, HRH The Prince of Wales gave me the Donoso Trophy for The Best Player from the visiting team. The entire experience was thrilling, and the atmosphere was energetic, and I hope to go back to England to try to win the trophy again soon!
