The on-going Lagos International Polo Tournament yesterday produced more winners, as the Lagos based teams came to the party this time around by winning the Dansa Cup and the Lagos Open Cup after a thrilling match that entertained the spectators.

Lagos Unity Polo outplayed vibrant Kano Tripple K by a decisive six chukkas to three to lift the prestigious Dansa Cup, while Lagos Shoreline fell to the superior fire power of their fellow Lagos based team, Lagos Fifth Chukker, who had earlier won the Oba of Lagos Cup. They came from behind to nick a comprehensive victory towards the fourth and the fifth chukkas in the five chukka thriller which ended nine chukkas to six.
