The tournament of the sixth day was none the less than the match of day 5 in the Argentine Polo Field in Palermo
The tournament of the sixth day was none the less than the match of day 5 in the Argentine Polo Field in Palermo (third in Zone B) of the 124th Argentine Open HSBC Polo Championship, the world’s largest interclub event.
In the first turn, on court 2, Algeria Land Rover beat Chapaleufu Cardon by 18-10 in a match that ended in a heavy rain. No doubt the second match was played that day, in which the recent winner of the Hurlingham Club Open, Ellerstina Johor, had to fight more to defeat a very tough LD La Dolphina Polo Ranch for a tight 12-11.
The men in magenta of Algeria scored four consecutive goals with an unstoppable Facundo Sola.All that was fatal Chapaleufu, who at all times sought to impose his game, with “Gallego” Martinez Ferrarrio as his best figure on the date, but still Algeria took advantage of rain, to finish 18-10 above.
Further on court one Ellerstina won, but the Polo Ranch team was still content with his performance. Despite of the mind blowing performance, scoring and being within the range of equality, they did not manage to draw. Ellerstina is still undefeated and will surely define the Zone before Algeria, while Polo ranch will play against Chapaleufu in a momentous match for the ranking.
The scores in Court 2 of the individual players were as follows: Alejo Land Rover: Facundo Sola 8 (6 goals), Hilario Ulloa 10 (1), Guillermo Caset (h) 9 (8, two penalties) and Frederick Mannix (h) 8 (3). Total: 35.
Chapaleufu Cardon: Alberto Heguy (h) 7 (3), Ezequiel Martinez Ferrarrio 8 (4), Julian de Lusarreta 7 (1) and Eduardo Heguy 8 (2 penal). Total: 30.

LD La Dolfina Polo Ranch: Deigo Cavanagh 7 (7, three penalties), Gullermo Terrera (h) 8 (2), Alejo Taranco 7 and Ignatious du Plessis 8 (1). Total: 30.
