Saudi patron Amr Zedan’s squad’s win over the recent Dubai Gold Cup champions was a convincing win in a match that the victor’s dominated from the outset.
Heguy and teammate Matias Logioco both scored for Zedan in the first of the four chukkas while Guillermo Cuitino got one back for Habtoor. In the second period Heguy came alive, scoring a flurry of three goals while Habtoor’s Fran Elizalde sent one through the Zedan posts.
Determined play from Habtoor kept the prolific Heguy down to one goal in the third chukka, while Elizalde scored two, but Heguy was back to his goal-scoring ways in the fourth chukka, scoring a brace while Logioco sent just one through for Habtoor.
Habtoor’s Elizalde scored twice more to bring his goal tally to an impressive five for the game, but it was not enough to win them the game and when the claxon went Zedan’s four-goal lead remained intact.
Unsurprisingly, Heguy was named Most Valuable Player and also claimed the prize for highest goal scorer among the professionals with an impressive tally of 28 goals for the tournament.
The highest goal scorer among the amateur ranks was Amr Zedan with a total of four goals.
In the subsidiary final defending title-holders Ghantoot Land Rover rode out victorious after a spirited clash against Bin Drai that ended 4:2.
