AFTER A SOLID WIN AGAINST ALEGRIA-EL MILAGRO
On Sunday at Casa de Campo, the fourth day of the high goal Bronze Cup took place. The first match of the day was between Lechuza Caracas, Victor Vargas’ team and the only undefeated one up to date, and Alegría-El Milagro, the Mannix Brothers’ team, who have debuted on the island this year.
Lechuza was able to lead the match from the very start, thanks to two goals by Pelón Stirling that inaugurated the scoreboard. Stirling Jr. with 6 goals scored on the match, was the highlighted player, thanks to his superb performance, usual in a player of his caliber. Alegría was never able to surpass Lechuza, and the final score was 9-6. Thanks to this triumph, Lechuza has secured a spot on the grand final of the Bronze Cup, while the remaining three teams will define on Tuesday who takes the other spot by penalty shootouts.
Later on, at 4pm, the game that pitted Casa de Campo and Power Infrastructure took place. Power Infrastructure started off with the right foot leading the game, but after an excellent third chukka by Casa de Campo, with 5 goals scored by the team (2 by Bete Donovan and 3 by Pancho Bensadón) the locals were able to dominate the game. The duo Donovan-Bensadón was relentless with Power Infrastructure, and in spite of their efforts and the excellent performance donned by Santiago Toccalino, Casa de Campo emerged victorious by 11-9.
On the other hand, two games of the 12-goal category were played in Lechuza and Casa de Campo on Saturday. The first one was the battle between Pitirri-El Palenque, team that’s steadily becoming the favorite and one of the most powerful on its category, and La Potranca. Pitirri was much more superior than its opponent, and in spite of the very few goals exchanged on the whole game, they won by 5-1.
The game between Costasur y Cinque Terre – El Milagro. This game got tied on the third and fourth chukka, and when the fifth period was rolling already, it had to be suspended due to heavy rains.
