On Saturday Feb 8, Princeton’s mallet men competed against Yale in the first clash of the two teams in over 50 years. Princeton emerged victorious with a final score of 17-14. It was a closely combatted match with many hard-fought plays in Yale’s new and beautiful indoor arena in Bethany, CT. The strong team effort and a brilliant Dillon Bacon secured the win for Princeton. This was also the first match of the young polo program that only returned to Princeton’s campus in January 2014. Princeton Polo would like to thank Yale, especially coaches Liz Brayboy and Ed Armstrong, Captain Manuel Valle and President Aurora Edington for hosting our men’s team. The Tigers were: #1 Alexander Sen, #2 Dillon Bacon, #3 Nikolas Weissmueller, #4 Thomas Facon.
