With the fresh memories of a disappointing defeat in the 2020 U.S. Open Women’s Polo Championship Final, BTA/The Villages (Kylie Sheehan, Paige Boone, KC Krueger and Tiffany Busch) turned the narrow loss into motivation headed into the 2021 rematch against two-time defending champions Hawaii Polo Life (Dolores Onetto, Pamela Flanagan, Mia Cambiaso and Hazel Jackson).
Once again emerging as the two strongest teams in the tournament with undefeated 3-0 records, the finalists met on the U.S. Polo Assn. Field 1 at the International Polo Club Palm Beach on Saturday, March 20. Locked in a tie after three chukkers of play, the teams pushed the game down to the wire with Boone claiming the game-winning neckshot in the last minute of regulation. Preventing Hawaii Polo Life from sealing a historical three-peat victory, BTA/The Villages grabbed the championship by a final score of 6-5.
