The first round of the GCL in Cascais, Estoril got off to a flying start with a record five teams scoring an impressive double clear. Paris Panthers’ formidable duo of Gregory Wathelet and Darragh Kenny pounced on pole position for the second time this season, with a phenomenally quick combined time shooting them to the top of the leaderboard.

The Panthers lead the way into Saturday night’s showdown, with the teams starting in reverse order following today’s result. Slotting into second were the Scandinavian Vikings, with the overall ranking leaders London Knights taking third. Both Rome Gladiators and Montreal Diamonds also kept a clean score sheet, meaning all five could be within touch of the win as the League gallops to it’s midway point.

Darragh Kenny spoke of the importance of collecting valuable scores towards the team’s bid for a place in the GC Play Offs; “We’re very happy, both horses jumped super. We need to have a good result this week.” His teammate Gregory Wathelet agreed, and spoke of the unusual five clears: “It’s difficult to explain as it looked not too difficult, but in the end there were only a few clears - so it was good for us!"
