LAHORE: Remington Pharma edged past Platinum Homes-Master Paints by 7-6 in the main final to win the Maj Gen Saeed-uz-Zaman Janjua Memorial Polo Cup, sponsored by JS Bank, at Jinnah Polo Fields here on Sunday. The main final proved an enthralling and exciting encounter. Both sides gave tough time to each other till the third chukker, where Remington Pharma played better polo and excelled with both mallet and ponies to take a slight lead, which remained intact till the final whistle. The losing side though tried hard and also managed to score one goal in the last chukker but their efforts couldn’t bear fruit. From Remington Pharma, Hamza Mawaz Khan emerged as hero as he hammered an impressive hat-trick and he was ably assisted by his teammates Ahmed Bilal Riaz (two goals) and Ahmed Zubair Butt and Basel Faisal Khokhar (one goal each). From Platinum Homes-Master Paints, Iranian player Aamirreza Behboudi fired in fabulous five goals and Sufi Muhammad Haroon struck one goal but their contribution proved too little too late as they lost the final by a narrow margin.
