The weather was almost too hot to handle on Sunday at Saint Tropez Polo Club. Matches in both categories (10 & 15 goals) saw certain teams qualify to the next stages of the tournament, but at the same time the 15-goal became more open, after 21st Luxury got a very important win against Marquard Media. 

Dark Ice 10.5-11 Cibao La Pampa
Cibao La Pampa keeps improving in this Polo Masters/Open de Gassin. A new win means they are now very close to qualifying for the semis. 
Score Cibao La Pampa: (0-1.5) 3-2.5, 6-5.5, 9-8.5, 11-10.5.

La Bien Mirada 4-7 VT Wealth Management

21st Luxury 10-9 Marquard Media
21st Luxury needed a win to stay in the competition. It was a really tight game, going into extra chukka. After overcoming Marquard Media's attack, 21st Luxury got the win; they will now face ERG in the quarter finals.
Score 21st Luxury: 1-0, 2-4, 4-5, 6-7, 9-9,10-9..

Antelope 11-10 Pull Love
After a couple of unexpected results, this was a very important match. If Pull Love won, the six participating teams would be in the same position in the standings. But, if Antelope were victorious, they would automatically earn a spot in the semis. The game very even until the fourth chukker, when Antelope outscored their opponents 4-1. Pull Love made a good comeback in the last, but it wasn’t enough to tie the game. Nacho Kennedy lead his team once again, scoring four times for Antelope.
