The Harvard outdoor polo team, holder of the intercollegiate title, successfully defended the Copley Plaza Trophy against Dedham yesterday afternoon when it defeated the team of veterans by a 12 to 7 score on Governor Forbes' field in Westwood. The Crimson players were awarded individual trophies following their win and in addition will retain the coveted cup for a second year. Tomorrow the riders will journey to Myopia where they will play one game tomorrow afternoon and engage the same opponents again on Saturday. Following the second clash at Myopia the ponies will be shipped back to Cambridge for a last practice prior to their departure on Tuesday for the intercollegiate meeting at the Westchester-Biltmore club starting on June 19.
Dedham Gives Hard Battle
The Dedham team composed of Phillip Saltonstall, number one, W. Cameron Forbes, number two, J. Dudley Clark, number three, and Jaspar Bacon who was replaced in the last two chukkers by B. Nathan Hamlin at back, are all experienced players and gave their younger rivals a stiffer fight than was expected. Until the final three periods the score zigzagged back and forth with first one team and then the other taking the lead. Towards the close of the game, however, the veterans tired and the Crimson mallet men forged far ahead, counting their final goal just as the game ended.
Captain R. D. Pinkerton '27, at back for the winners, displayed a brilliant brand of horsemanship and stick handling which was largely responsible for many of the University tallies. In the fourth chukker the University captain cut loose with the most spectacular shot of the game when he scored unassisted from far down the field. Alexander Shaw '28 at number one and R. B. Burnett '27, number three turned in brilliant exhibitions of polo and aided largely in the Crimson point gathering. For the losers J. Dudley Clark, father of the Crimson Freshman polo player, was the outstanding star. The teams played eight chukkers of seven and one half minutes each.
