Park Place continues on the winning path. On Saturday May 20 they won the Justerini & Brooks Prince of Wales Trophy, the opening tournament of the high goal season in England, following a narrow 10-9 win in extra chukka in the final played at Zacara. Vikings claimed the lead in the two first chukkas, but fom the third chukka onwards Park Place bounced back, and the contest turned out into a very hard fought battle. A 9-all in the last chukka, sent the match into extra chukka, when Facundo Pieres sealed the deal, like he did against Twelve Oaks, a couple of days before.
ForAndrey Borodin’s lineup, this is their second Prince of Wales Trophy. The first was in 2020, and this victory increases the steady growth of the organisation, that already saw them as winners of the last US Open, in the United States.
The Justerini & Brooks Prince of Wales Trophy saw ten teams up to 22 goals, partake.
A new challenge are coming up for both Park Place and Vikings: The Queen’s Cup, due to commence next Tuesday.
The Justerini & Brooks Prince of Wales Trophy was streamed live on Berkshire TV.
