Classification Tournament Continues

Wins for La Esquina & Cría GT

Yesterday, Thursday 12 November, The Classification Tournament for The Remonta & Veterinaria Cup and the two last places in The Argentine Open continued. 
In Group A, Cría GT faced La Cañada and led the scoring from the outset but were soon troubled by injury as Joaquin Pittaluga had to be replaced in the second chukka by Cristian ‘Magoo’ Laprida. However, this didn’t dampen Cría GT’s spirits and they maintained their advantage thanks to the strong play between the two Laprida brothers. The last two chukkas saw La Cañada make a comeback ,with some excellent plays from Martín Aguerre bringing the team within striking distance of a win; yet it wasn’t enough and Cría GT took a 13-12 win, whilst La Cañada’s hopes of competing in The Argentine Open were dashed. 
The second match of the day saw La Esquina recover their composure following their opening defeat on Sunday 8 November, with a 12-10 win against Alegría following a strong second half. 
All attention now focuses on the two matches on Monday 16 November which will decide the two final spots in The Argentine Open.
