The III Women’s Argentine Open

Play underway in Palermo

The III Women’s Argentine Open is underway in the heart Argentina, on the pristine Palermo grounds. On Monday 2 December, 2018 champions La Dolfina Brava began their 2019 tournament with a 9-3 win against rivals La Ensenada. Later the same day, 30 goal El Overo Z7 UAE, the highest handicapped team in the tournament, secured a resounding 16-1 win against the extremely underhandicapped La Victoria (who are playing the open tournament off just 16 goals). El Overo Z7 UAE is a firm fan favourite, with 10 goaler Brit Hazel Jackson-Gaona and her British teammate Milly Hine (4 goals), taking to the field alongside Argentina’s top female player, Lía Salvo (9 goals) and young up-and-comer Clara Cassino (7 goals). 
There is more exciting play due today, with La Dolfina Amanara beginning their tournament against La Ensenada at 2pm (local time) and Dawn Jones’s Santa María de Lobos taking on La Victoria at 4pm. The Final is scheduled to take place on Saturday 14 December before The Argentine Open, in front of thousands of avid fans.
