The second half saw the score tied again at 4-4 and 6-6 at the end of the of the 4th and 5th chukkers. In the 6th Facundo Obregon scored the ‘goal of the game’ with an impressive nearside tail shot, near the backline, to put Tonkawa ahead 8-6.

Sapo Caset was the leading scorer with five goals. The Tonkawa defense held Cambiaso to just one goal, a penalty shot in the second period.
