Argentine Open Championship: Day 5

November 15, 2017
November 15, 2017
Polo at Palermo resumed on Tuesday. First up, and intense match on ground two as La Esquina Los Machitos played their best game of the season, pushing La Aguada through out the match. Nacho Novillo Astrada showed a great level of play once again and guided his team to victory.

Next up, La Dolfina made their debut on ground one. Not only was Cañuelas foursome superior, but the four players showed an overwhelming level of skill. The difference between the two teams was clear from the begining, with La Dolfina scoring many goals. Cambiaso and his teammates are looking to break records and win five Argentine Opens in a row, something that has not happened since the 1970s.
