POLO P L A Y E R S E D I T I O N 21 wonderful barbecue at her home, where the Americans met George Cronin, and Kaleb Watson who had come down from the North Island for the test match. Due to rain in the forecast, the test match was moved up a day. Although it meant playing four days in a row, we were happy to get the games in. The Kiwi team had Watson, Henry Batchelor, Appleby and Cronin. Trailing 3-1, the U.S. teamwork began to improve and they tied the match at 3-3 about midway through the fourth chukker, forcing overtime. Overtime began with a knock-in by Jenkins, who was fouled, giving USA a Penalty 5B from midfield. Jenkins can unload the ball pretty consistently, so he sent all three teammates forward and dropped the ball just left of goal on about the 30-yard line. Coleman was able to drop in and put it through for the winning goal. This is only the second time that a visiting team has won The James Wood Cup for International Test Matches. "Our hosts treated us like royalty the entire week, and I was extremely proud of our players, who were complemented several times on their behavior both on and off the field," said PTF Executive Director Danny Scheraga. "Special thanks go to Monique Ellis- Martin, who supervises the Christ College program, housed the boys and is our main contact on this exchange; Rangi Ruru girl's school for housing Grace; Willie Davidson for organizing all the polo; the Wood family for all their help; and for all the families that supplied horses for our players," Scheraga said.
