Noon-Sarissa Polo delivered goals during the final chukker and was half-goal shy of snatching the win. But the Hesketh team kept its advantage and closed the game at 6 goals to 5.5.
 
The patron of the Habtoor Polo team - Mohammed Al Habtoor - opened the final match of the day and placed the lead on its side until halftime. Justo Cuitinho scored El Basha Polo's first goal during the penultimate chukker, but a penalty shot from Mohammed kept the 2-goal of Habtoor Polo. In spite of the additional goal from Justo in the final chukker, Habtoor Polo remained victorious and ended the tournament at 3 goals to 2.
