Tortugas Final Set for Tomorrow

La Dolfina Saudi vs Ellerstina

On Friday 6 November, the second of The Tortugas Open Semi Finals was played, which saw La Dolfina Saudi (Adolfo Cambiaso (10), Poroto Cambiaso( 6), Rodrigo Andrade (8) (Injured, replaced by Pedrinho Zacharias 7 in the fifth chukker) & Iñaki Laprida (8)) qualify for The Tortugas Open Final following their 10-6 defeat of La Dolfina Polo Ranch (Guillermo Terrera (8), Juan Britos (8), Diego Cavanagh (9) & Jejo Taranco (8)). 
The pivotal match began well for La Dolfina Polo Ranch who took an early lead and by the end of the third chukka the scores sat unexpectedly on 3-1 in favour of La Dolfina Polo Ranch. La Dolfina Saudi continued to be plagued by injury, this time Rodrigo Andrade (who was already replacing an injured Pablo MacDonough) was injured and had to be replaced by Brazilian Pedrinho Zacharias; however the team didn’t let this affect them for long and by the fourth chukka had managed to turn things around to take the lead, 5-4. Adolfo Cambiaso led the team to an overall victory of 10-6 and with it secured themselves a place in tomorrow’s Final (4pm local) against Ellerstina. Before the main Final, La Ensenada/La Aguada will face La Natividad Monjitas in the Subsidiary Final for the Sarmiento Cup at 11am (local).
