El Overo Z7 UAE Qualify for 2024 Triple Crown

Narrow 13-12 win against La Irenita

On Sunday 3 December at the Alfredo Lalor Headquarters in Pilar, Copa Cámara de Diputados winners La Irenita went up against the eighth team in the 2023 Argentine Open ranking – El Overo Z7 UAE. El Overo Z7 UAE’s Teo Lacau was replaced by Santi Cernadas while La Irenita went into the match with an undefeated streak of 11 games. 
Unsurprisingly, both teams fought tooth and nail right down to the final bell, with Cruz Heguy coolly sending home a penalty in the last minute to secure the 13-12 win and means the El Overo Z7 UAE will be automatically pre-classified for the 2024 Triple Crown along with La Dolfina Saudi, La Natividad, La Hache La Roca, La Ensenada Brubank, Ellerstina Yellow Rose, Cría La Dolfina and La Hache Cría & Polo.
The Repechage Match Teams:
El Overo Z7 UAE (28): Lucas Monteverde (7), Victorino Ruiz Jorba (7), Cruz Heguy (7) & Santiago Cernadas (7)
La Irenita (26): Antonio Heguy (6), Federico Panzillo (6), Martín Podesta (7) & Jacinto Crotto (7)
