Talandracas fought hard in the second half of the match to make a comeback; they battled back from 2-6 down score at the end of the third chukka to finally beat Dubai by 8 goals to 7.

Next,  Park Place defeated La Bamba de Areco 11-7. Jean-François Decaux’s team played with an unchanged lineup, which included Pelón Stirling. As Adolfo Cambiaso, Stirling’s potential replacement, told PoloLine, Pelón was injected and able to play.
