Copa República Argentina Final

La Esquina secures the win

The Copa República Argentina came to a conclusion on Saturday 13 April with three Finals played. The two Subsidiary Finals were played at the AAP grounds in Pilar. In the Final, Copa Canadá Chapaleufu defeated LZ Cartagena de Indias, 11-10 and in the Final Copa Diario, La Nación El Desafío defeated Coronel Suárez, 12-11. The main Copa República Argentina Final was played in Palermo and saw the unbeaten La Esquina take on La Chativa La Natividad.
The Final began with La Chativa La Natividad receiving a two goal handicap advantage, however La Esquina continued undeterred and took a quick lead in the first chukka. La Esquina’s dominance did not abate in the second chukka and the score was increased to 7-4. In the third chukka, La Chativa La Natividad came out fighting and by half-time had managed to draw the scores closer, to 7-6. However, La Esquina doggedly dominated the second half of the Final, with all four players gelling together in both attack and defence. When the final whistle sounded, La Esquina remained undefeated and secured the 2019 Copa República Argentina with a final score of 13-9. Peregrino Venucina, played by Francisco Bensadón was named the Jaime Amorín Best Playing Pony and Machitos Blusera, played by Pascual Sáinz de Vicuña was the Argentine Breeders Association Best Playing Pony.
