Lechuza 14 – Los Establos 5
Mvp Victor Vargas
The opening day of the Silver Cup Banco del Progreso American Express , the second of four tournaments that form the Polo Challenge 2016 was another disappointment for Los Establos as they had to face the unbeaten Lechuza. Not only have Lechuza not lost a single game but Los Establos have yet to win one. Nevertheless it was a tremendous match to watch as the Cubi Toccalino and Ale Muzzio combination never fails to impress even when under crushing pressure.
Toccalino’s last goal, his 4th, was the most astounding penalty from about 100 yards out in chukka number 4. Both him and Muzzio plucked balls from the air at full speed throughout the game but could do nothing to prevent the Lechuza machine from pounding them with a barrage of goals. The lion’s share of these came from Vargas who scored 6, 4 in the final chukka ..
Collardin with 4, Nero with 3 and Jauretche only one but a phenomenal intercept followed by a juggle down the field that made it the goal of the day in the 5th. chukka.
Activity resumes tomorrow at Los Establos, with Agualinda facing Los Samanes.
