Cambiaso and co retain the Hurlingham Open title
LA DOLFINA BEAT Ellerstina to win the Hurlingham Open for the third year running yesterday. The 39-goal team of Adolfo Cambiaso, Juan Martin Nero, Pablo MacDonough and David “Pelon” Stirling got the better of their arch rivals 18-16.
The Ellerstina side of Facundo, Nico and Gonzalito Pieres and Mariano Aguerre got off to the better start, leading until the third chukka. The score remained tight throughout the match, but La Dolfina had the edge and secured the win, and the second leg of the Argentine Triple Crown.
Both teams will now contest the Argentine Open at Palermo, which begins on Saturday 16 November.
