The first Florida Circuit 16-Goal Super-Series Championship came to an electrifying conclusion, at the National Polo Center – Wellington (NPC). The title match brought together a dominant Iconica team (Maureen Brennan, Mariano ‘Peke’ Gonzalez, Lucas ‘Luckitas’ Criado, Santos Merlos) and late competition qualifier La Fe (Rufino Merlos, Robi Bilbao, Francisco Elizalde, Louis Devaleix). Generating an early lead in the second chukker, Iconica kept their eyes on the prize and never wavered, maintaining the lead throughout the remainder of the game to grasp a triumphant 14-11 victory.
An innovative and unique addition to the Florida winter season, the inaugural 16-Goal Super-Series offered teams the opportunity to qualify for the championship by winning one of four qualifiers (The Joe Barry Memorial, Ylvisaker Cup, Iglehart Cup, Continental Cup). Making waves early on, Iconica captured the first three trophies, raising the Joe Barry Memorial Cup, Ylvisaker Cup and Iglehart Cup. Their wins in multiple qualifiers not only guaranteed them a place in the Championship, but also allowed them to advance directly to the Championship Final.
