Saturday saw the 126 Argentine Open Zone A definition. For third consecutive time, 10 teams are in participation, with La Dolfina being the only 40-goal team as well as the winner of the last six editions.
In front of a low number of spectators, La Dolfina displayed a powerful performance against their opponents LD Polo Ranch, who, despite of the result, managed to do quite well throughout the entire tournament. The match was already decided in the fourth chukker when Adolfo Cambiaso´s team had a commanding 8-1 lead by half time.
Therefore, the Cañuelas based foursome celebrated reaching a new final at Palermo – no less than 19, but also it was the 100th. match of the current lineup, a lineup that already made history, and, among others, had claimed seven titles of the Argentine Open. Not bad at all!
