With two points on the board due to handicap, Postage Stamp Farm quickly lost their early lead as Mariano Gonzalez and Mariano Aguerre made the first two goals for Work to Ride to even it up. Unwilling to fall behind, Annabelle Gundlach and Kris Kampsen responded with two goals of their own. Although Gonzalez scored the final goal of the chukker by penalty conversion, Postage Stamp Farm maintained the lead to end it, 4-3. Both teams were tied 5-5 by the end of the second chukker, one penalty conversion by Kampsen followed by another two goals by Gonzalez. Coming into the third chukker, Nick Manifold scored two consecutive goals out of three for Work to Ride, but was answered back immediately by Gundlach and Joao Ganon, ending the half 8-7 in favor of Work to Ride.

Neck and neck in the fourth chukker, Brandon Phillips scored a single goal to level the field for a second time heading into the fifth, where Postage Stamp Farm would break away. With the final chukker rapidly approaching, Phillips kicked it into high gear for Postage Stamp Farm, scoring three goals and a fourth by Kampsen to take a two point lead going into the sixth. Work To Ride would not recover from this aggressive play and with a final goal by each of the teams, the game finished 13-11.
