Here is the report from Day 2 of the tournament.
Mumumi Musa opened and closed scoring for Lagos Ericsson on Thursday to record a 6-5 win over Lagos Ironclad Hustlers as action intensifies in the 2013 Lagos Polo International Tournament.

The Dansa Cup match seems to be turning a one-way affair as Ericsson raced to a 4-1 lead in the first chukka but Salisu and Amodu Umar spearheaded a great comeback for the Hustlers who justified their name by forcing the match into sudden death as the scores were tied at 5-5 after the fourth and last chukka. With the goal widened by an additional 50%, Musa calmly converted a golden goal penalty to win the tie for Ericsson who are one of the favourites to win the title.

In the day’s second match, T-Raiders proved that they are not to be underrated as they took HST to the cleaners with a resounding 7 ½ -2 win over their higher rated opponents in another Dansa Cup encounter.
Rotimi Makanjuola scored in quick successions to give the Raiders a 4½ – 0 lead before Mohammed Mdheli pulled a goal back for HST at the close of the first chukka.

Raiders’ hitman Bashir Musa amended for his 60-yard penalty miss as he scored for a 5½ – 1 lead and by the end of the third chukka, the lead had been extended substantially to 7½ – 1. Funsho George scored the only goal of the fourth chukka and the game was brought to an end in a comical way as Mdehli was denied what was a clear chance as his pony kicked the ball off the goal mouth just before the end of the match. Kayode Awogboro’s Lagos Goodfellow/Ark and Taju Dantata’s Kano Titans were billed to battle in the final match of the day.

Friday’s matches will see Kano Dala confront Ibadan Eleyele in a must-win match for the sides in the Dansa Cup following the sides’ defeats in their opening games while Kano Eurovote/Sublime Group clash with Lagos Goodfellows/Ark in the Open Cup.

    BN Sports! 😀

    Hate sports though. Eyes simply glazed over at “…Mumumi Musa opened…a 4-1 lead…T-Raiders proved…7 ½ -…” SMH.

    However, perhaps BN would oblige its readers with cover articles on Nigerian rated-Polo players and how the rating works. Mmmm…gud tings!!

      I bet some Lagos babes are planning their next Kim Kardashian inspired look & Halima Abubakar pout for the next Lagos Polo tournament. This is a really good place for passionate & enterprising runs babes to market their “product”. A well packaged cat will attract the biggest client . Good luck ladies!

    There’s a piece that’s been running on CNN for a few days now in Qatar about grooming horses, swimming, bathing, the stalls and all. I just look at our horses here like elegushi beach horses. Lmao. Nonetheless, polo the world over is a big man’s sport. Pretty sure some will start commenting about feeding the poor!

      Did you say that during AFCON? When government was dashing millions of Naira that could be used infrastructure to ordinary football players.

      Polo is cultural thing especially in the North too.

      Different sports for different folks.

      So people live again because people are suffering? Mschewww!

      March 2, 2013 at 4:35 am

      Don’t be daft abeg. She clearly didn’t know he was married before asking about him and when she did know, she said she isn’t interested ”married men turn her off” ….do make it a point to not only read what is in front of you but to actually comprehend. All in all, Bella, please keep us informed about the subsequent days of the tournament.
