Chapaleufú Thai Polo retain title
This year saw seven youth teams between 10 and 18 goals, with a maximum player age of 21-years-old, compete in the II Youth Handicap. The Final was played on Monday 25 October on Court 7 of the Alfredo Lalor Headquarters in Pilar. Chapaleufú Thai Polo sacrificed a four goal handicap advantage, as they outstripped La Irenita 17 goals to 13; despite La Irenita’s much lower handicap on paper they put up a strong fight and Chapaleufú Thai Polo only took the title 12-11, with Ned Hine scoring the golden goal in an extra chukka.
II Youth Handicap Final Teams:
Chapaleufú Thai Polo (17): Nicolás Díaz Alberdi (4), Bautista Riglos (5), Ned Hine (3) & Javier Guerrero (5)
La Irenita (13): Tomás Delfino (2), Juan Cruz Gallegos (3), Federico Panzillo (5), & Matías Mac Donough (3)
