ALEGRIA SECURE QUICK WIN, WHILE ELLERSTINA ONLY JUST HELD ON TO THE VICTORY
The Argentine Open Championship resumed on Wednesday at Palermo. Despite the rain, the two matches were held as they were set. The game on field 2, kicked off with a huge difference between Alegria and Chapaleufu, but the Heguy´s team managed to close the gap during the following chukkers. The pink team showed once again their good performance, with 4 determined players. Despite it wasn´t his best game, they were effective and won with a good difference.
Next up, what was expected to be be a very uneven game, ended up being the other way around. La Dolfina Polo Ranch, despite being a new team, showed an excellent performance, with players that understand their positions on the field. They have a determined system, and a great work from their coach Gaston Laulhé. On the other side, Ellestina had a low performance this time. The highlight was Polito Pieres, who was named top scorer again. The game was decided not until last chukker. As Guillermo Terrera said, La Dolfina Polo Ranch is looking forward the next two opponents: Chapaleufu and Cría Yatay.
