Argentine Open Continues Tomorrow
Ellerstina vs Alegria Fish Creek & La Dolfina Saudi vs La Ensenada
The 128th HSBC Argentine Open continues tomorrow, Saturday 20 November, with two matches: Ellerstina vs Alegria Fish Creek and La Dolfina Saudi vs La Ensenada.
The last matches to be played were on Wednesday 17 November at the Argentine Association of Polo in Pilar. The first match of the day saw RS Murus Sanctus secure an impressive 18-7 win against Alegria, which was a strong result considering the hard-fought first five chukkas, with RS Murus Sanctus taking charge and surging ahead in the sixth chukka.
The second match of the day was highly anticipated as it saw La Dolfina Brava (with Tomás Panelo replacing the injured Rodrigo Ribeiro de Andrade) vs Chapaleufú; spectators enjoyed to and fro action between both sides, Poroto Cambiaso scored nine goals for La Dolfina Brava, and despite stellar performances from Chapaleufú’s Felipe Dabas and Rufino Bensadon, La Dolfina Brava secured their second consecutive win, 17-10, which now positions them at the top of League B.
