Old Pueblo Routs Orchard Hill 14-9 In Hall Of Fame Polo Action Friday At International Polo Club Palm Beach

WELLINGTON, Florida – Eight-goaler Jeff Hall and substitute Kris Kampsen scored five goals each to lead Old Pueblo over Orchard Hill 14-9 in a 22-goal Hall of Fame Cup polo match Friday at International Polo Club Palm Beach.

Hall scored three consecutive goals in a 77-second span in the fifth chukker to give Old Pueblo a 12-8 margin. Orchard Hill’s Julio Arellano scored with 5:10 remaining in the fifth chukker to cut the lead to 9-8. But Hall took over, converting a penalty shot with 4:15 left, then scoring on a breakaway from the ensuing throw-in and adding a forehand on the next possession to virtually clinch the victory.

Kampsen and Brandon Phillips scored midway through the sixth chukker to round out Old Pueblo’s scoring.

Kampsen, a 6-goaler, was filling in for the injured Nicolas Roldan, a 7-goaler who hurt his knee and ankle during a practice earlier in the week. Roldan is expected to be sidelined for at least a week.

Phillips added three goals for Old Pueblo (1-0) while team patron John Hall did not score.

Arellano, an 8-goaler, finished with a game-high seven goals to lead Orchard Hill (0-1). Ten-goaler Eduardo Heguy, playing in his first game of the season, and Chris Stratemann, scored one goal each. Orchard Hill patron Steve Van Andel did not score.

The polo matches are open to the public. Tickets for the Sunday games at the International Polo Club Palm Beach are available at the gate, beginning at $10 each. For information, call (561) 204-5687 or visit the club website at
