M ountain View dominated the three-team round robin Karen Carra Memorial women's tournament at Mountain View Polo Club in Charles Town, West Virginia, Sept. 16. Mountain View (Reid O'Connor, Kija Wilson, Shamsiya Shervani, Laura Goddard) flexed its muscle early and never relinquished control. It took on Flaming Flamingos (Amelia Shaw, Sierra Goff, Willow Longerbeam) in the first round. Goff added to Flamingos handicap goal in the first period, but a pair of goals by Goddard and one from Shervani gave Mountain View the advantage. Goddard turned up the heat in the second with five goals, including a two-pointer, while Flamingos was held to single goals by Goff and Longerbeam. Mountain View won 10-4. Mountain View held its momentum in the second round as it took on Pinksburgh (Akemi Tinder, Kate Dougherty, Claudia Tobler). Tinder scored twice and Tobler once in the first chukker, but those goals were matched by Goddard. Dougherty found the mark in the second, but Goddard stole the show with five goals to take the 8-4 win. With Mountain View securing two wins, the last round was for second place honors. Flamingos began with a handicap goal, which it managed to hold onto through the first seven minutes as Longerbeam and Dougherty traded goals. Shaw added a goal in the second chukker but Tinder fired through three goals to give Pinksburgh the narrow 4-3 advantage. 46 POLO P L A Y E R S E D I T I O N P O L O R E P O R T D I S P A T C H E S F R O M T H E W O R L D O F P O L O Mountain View's Shamsiya Shervani, Reid O'Connor, Kija Wilson and Laura Goddard won the Carra Memorial.
