On Saturday 24th October, Oxford University Polo Club novices played their first tournament of the season – the RJ Polo tournament at Hampshire Polo School. Oxford earned a convincing 3-0 win in their first match against Bournemouth, with every member of the team putting a goals each past Bournemouth’s three without conceding a single one of their attempts. The novice blues then faced Brighton, drawing 1 all after the Brighton number 2 responded to Nik Gower’s early goal for the Oxford side. Brilliant defence by both teams then led to the draw, but Oxford’s solid earlier performance put them far enough ahead of the other teams to bring home the trophy.
Team: Nik Gower, Martyna Zelek, Kate Nosnibor
