Argentine Open Championship: Day 6

The Argentine Open Championship resumed on Wednesday at Palermo. Despite the rain, two matches were played. The game on ground two kicked off with a huge advantage for Alegria against Chapaleufu, but the Heguy team managed to close the gap over the following chukkas. The pink team proved once again that they can deliver a good performance. It wasn't their best game, but they were effective and claimed a good win.

Next up, what was expected to be be a very uneven game turned out to be very exciting. Despite being a new team, La Dolfina Polo Ranch gave an excellent performance, with all four players understanding their positions on the field. They showed to have a determined system, with great help from their coach Gaston Laulhé. On the other side, Ellestina did not play their best polo. Polito Pieres shone once again, and was named top scorer. The game was only decided in the last chukka. La Dolfina Polo Ranch now looks forward its next opponents: Chapaleufu and Cría Yatay.
