After losing their opening match to Sosian Steel Mills, John Deere defeated Sosian Energy 4.5 -2 to become the first team that cruised into the finals of Ndume Trophy of the Ndume Trophy/Kesier Cup Polo Championships at Manyatta Polo Club in Gilgil on Saturday.
It was a sweet come back for Deere having earlier lost by a solitary goal to Sosian Steel Mills 7-6 but qualified to meet Sosian Energy.
It was teamwork that secured the victory that ensured they entered the finals of the main competition in all the four chukkas.
Ever confident Hiromi Nzomo squeezed the first shot that earned them the first goal minutes after the first chukka before Josh Seagon equalised for Sosian Energy in the same chukka.
