Orchard Hill Three-peat?
The defending champion of the CV Whitney Cup will only have to win three games to take the title for a third consecutive time. With a three-team field the shortened schedule increases the odds for all three teams and their chance for glory.
Last year Orchard Hill overcame a four goal, 5th chukker, deficit to beat Audi 11-9. In 2015 Orchard Hill topped an eight-team field and made it to the finals to defeat Alegria 16 to 13.
Valiente is no stranger to the Whitney victory stage. They won the prestigious 26-goal cup in 2012 and in 2014. The third team in this year's field is Coca-Cola.
