La Aguada Autumn Cup, first of the three to be held in Argentina this autumn, saw the coming together face to face of Los Nocheros and Los Cocos, the former emerging a winner with flying colors.
The final match between the two daredevils was a complete delight to watch. Held at the La Aguada Polo Club in Argentina, the match was a cut-throat battle between the two teams. While Los Cocos had an advantage over Los Nocheros as the match proceeded, Los Nocheros’ final attack won it the prestigious cup. Throughout the match, the score continued to stay in the favor of Los Cocos with 1-2 in the first chukker, 2-2 in the second, 4-4 in the third, and 5-6 and 6-7 in the fourth and fifth, respectively. It was only in the sixth chukker that the score came to a tie with 8-8, while the advantage turned to the side of Los Nocheros finally making them win the cup towards the end with a score of 9-8. The award ceremony turned charming with Mackenzie Weisz being named MVP, while Pipe Pistone was decorated with the Fair Play Award.
Jorge MacDonough, a big name in the veterinary world, also a horse breeder, directive, and player, was paid a tribute during the championship, as he unexpectedly passed away on 24th March 2018.
