Ellerstina Through to Hurlingham Open Final

Tournament drawing to a close

On Saturday 27 October, matches resumed in the 125th Hurlingham Open at the Hurlingham Club in Pilar, the second leg of the Argentine Triple Crown.

In the first match of the weekend, La Dolfina Polo Ranch secured their second win of the tournament, defeating Alegría-La Irenita 15-11. Dolfina C05 Lapa Clone 5, played by Diego Cavanagh, was named the Best ‘Polo Argentino’ of the Match.
In the second match of the day, Ellerstina defeated La Aguada 19-8 to secure their spot in the Final on Saturday 3 November. Unsurprisingly, La Dolfina secured their spot in the Final, with an 11-8 win against Las Monjitas in their match on Sunday 28 October. Their match was followed by a 13-12 win for Cría Yatay against La Albertina Abu Dhabi, which unfortunately didn’t quite do enough to push these teams into the Final.
