The tournament on 26th November i.e. day 10 in 124th Argentine Open HSBC Polo Championship was exciting enough for the recent winner of the Hurlingham Open Ellerstina Johor that beat Alegria Land Rover on 15 to 14 in Palermo’s court 1 and qualified as finalist for the championship, the world’s leading event.

The beginning of the tenth date LD La Dolfina Polo Ranch won on court 2 to Cria Yatay Colony 11-10, in supplementary chukker, with a goal Diego Cavanagh by scoring a penalty of 60 yards.

On court 1 a great game was played, within two teams that sought from the beginning the triumph that deposited them in final. After two equal periods, Ellerstina took advantage of the intelligence of Facundo Pieres to search for spaces.

The sixth chukker was the best that was seenin the tournament, when both teams played on the attack and scored eight goals between the two, which left the magenta team better off since it converted the last three consecutively to equalize the 11. The seventh, also back and forth, finished tied at 13 and thus entered the last 6 min:30sec of net play. The team scoring counted for Court 2 was: LD La Dolfina Polo Ranch: Deigo Cavanagh 7 (10 goals, 8 penalties), Guillermo Terrera (h) 8, Alejo Taranco 7 and Ignatius du Plessis 8 (1). Total=30.

Breeding Yatay Colony:Valerio Zubiaurre (h) 7 (2), Cristian Laprida (h) 8 (4), Joaquin Pittaluga 8 (4, 3 penal) and Ignacio Laprida 8. Total= 31.

Court 1 of Palermo; Ellerstina Johor:Pablo Pieres 9 (8, 2 penal), Gonzalo Pieres (h) 10 (2), Facundo Pieres 10 (4, 2 penal) and Nicolas Pieres 10 (1). Total= 39.
