Zedan defeated Edrees by 7 goals to 6 in extra chukker in the second action day of the Dubai Challenge Cup 2016, held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, and part of Dubai Polo Gold Cup Series.

It was a tough victory for Zedan, not only because they achieved it in OT but also because Nachi Heguy, who arrived early this morning to Dubai to replace injured Pablo Mac Donough, suffered a hard fall in the last seconds of the fourth chukker and couldn´t make his way back on the field.

Guillermo Terrera replaced injured Nachi Heguy and Zedan won the match in extra chukker by 7 goals to 6 after a great goal by Martín Gándara.

Heguy and Gándara scored 3 goals each for Zedan and Tito Ruíz Guiñazú, from Edrees, was the top scorer of the match with 5 goals.
