A LAST-DITCH conversion in the dying moments by Danny Atwell ensured that ICBL won the Roger Gooding Memorial Challenge Trophy by defeating Clifton 5-4 in a polo final encounter at Apes Hill, St James, on Saturday.

Playing in the championship match of the tournament which began in February, Atwell held his nerve to give his team victory after ICBL appealed for a foul and got the approval of the umpire.

The match was marred by several heated exchanges between opposing players while the umpires were on the receiving end of heckling because of some contentions decisions.

By the end of the first chukka, the scores were locked at two goals each. Teddy Williams opened the scoring for ICBL early in the chukka but Christian Chavez struck back with two goals in quick succession, one from the 30-yard penalty spot, before Atwell equalised in the final minute of the chukka.
