Source (TheNews) Ghizer defeated Laspur while Gilgit-Baltistan-D trounced Chitral-D as the famous Shandur Polo Festival got underway at the world’s highest polo ground on Thursday.
The adviser to the Gilgit-Baltistan chief minister Sadia Danish was the chief guest at the opening ceremony.
Ghizer scored eight goals against two by the rival Laspur team in the first match. The second match also remained one-sided as Gilgit-Baltistan-D outclassed Chitral-D to win the match by six goals to three. The winning team had boycotted the festival last year.
However, its participation in the festival this year has made the competition interesting.
A large number of spectators from both Chitral and Gilgit-Baltistan thronged the venue to boost the morale of their respective teams in the final.
