Default Note The "12 Goal" Game On October 5

That's a pretty doggone good game. You'll seldom see 12-goal teams in TV. It might be a game not to miss.

By the way, a "12 goal team" is the total goal ratings of each of the players. That's the way they handicap polo matches. If a 12-goal team plays an opponent with players ratings totaling 11-goals, the 11-goal team begins the game winning 1-0. Generally, the organizers attempt to make the teams exactly equal in player ratings.

In the case of the 12-goal game, two of the players are rated 5-goals. Prince Charles was a pretty good polo player and at one time was rated a 4-goal player. The ruling body of polo lowered his rating to 3-goals when he began to get a little long in the tooth.. I know he had some polo injuries, but I guess age catches up with you, even if you're the British crown prince.
