Chapaleufú qualify for Argentine Open
On Sunday 31 October, the decisive match of Zone A of the Qualification Tournament was played between Chapaleufú and La Irenita. Following their 12-1o win on Sunday, Chapaleufú became the first team to secure one of two places available via the Qualification Tournament for The 128th HSBC Argentine Open.
The competition continues today, Monday 1 November, with La Aguada vs La Esquina at 2pm (local time) and Alegria Fish Creek vs La Fija at 4.30pm (local time). Zone B sees Alegria Fish Creek leading, followed by La Aguada and La Fija, but La Esquina is already out of the running as well as La Aguada. However, if La Aguada wins, three teams – La Aguada, Alegria Fish Creek and La Fija – will be tied in points. If this happens then La Fija must defeat Alegria Fish Creek by five goals or more to take their place. However, if La Esquina wins, the winner of the match between Alegria Fish Creek and La Fija will claim the second place in the Open.
