Sunday Funday began at an exclusive field-side Champagne Brunch at the Mallet Grille, outdoors on prime real estate for watching the game while enjoying a glass of Veuve. The game featured Valiente VS Orchard Hill with a close game, but Valiente taking the championship in the final 2 minutes of the last chukker with 2 penalty shots and star player Adolfo Cambiaso scoring a sexy goal towards the final seconds.
