On Tuesday, 14th October, the Hurlingham Open will take off at Hurlingham Club. But one widely known polo player will not be able to participate in the second part of the Argentine Triple Crown: Frederick Mannix (+9) got hit by a mallet during the match against Ellerstina on Wednesday, 8th October and now suffers a fracture of a finger in his right hand. He will not be able to play polo for at least to weeks.

Yesterday Clemente Zavaleta, coach of the Alegría Polo Team, announced that the Canadian Player will be replaced by Alfredo Cappella (+7) during the matches of the Hurlingham Open. Previously the Argentine player had been playing for Santa Teresa in the Qualifying Tournament.

e-cambia1-576

La Dolfina se clasificó este sábado a una nueva final del Abierto de Tortugas al derrotar con facilidad por 17-5 a Magual, en el último partido de la Zona A del tradicional certamen.

El equipo liderado por Adolfo Cambiaso no tuvo problemas ante el conjunto de Ignacio Toccalino, porque luego de un comienzo con paridad, se fue arriba en el tanteador y convirtió en indescontables las diferencias.

Sólo los primeros tres chuckers fueron peleados, porque en esos minutos iniciales el conjunto de Cañuelas anotaba, pero no podía evitar la rápida respuesta de su rival.

La situación cambió en el cuarto período, cuando La Dolfina afianzó su defensa pero no disminuyó su caudal ofensivo, entonces tomó distancia en el marcador de 7-3.

De allí en más, todo fue de Cambiaso y sus compañeros, que ya no dieron chances y se terminaron de escapar, de cara al 17-5 contundente y final.

FORMACIONES:
LA DOLFINA:
Adolfo Cambiaso (h) 10, David Stirling (h) 10, Pablo Mac Donough 10 y Juan M. Nero 10. Total: 40.

MAGUAL:
Alejandro Muzzio 8, Ignacio Toccalino 9, Marcos Di Paola 8 y Jaime García Huidobro 8. Total: 33.

JUECES:
Federico Martelli y Esteban Ferrari

ÁRBITRO:
Martín Goti.

Ellerstina and La Dolfina cruise to wins in Tortugas Open

2 Oct

There were no surprises on Monday afternoon on the Argentine Polo Association fields at Pilar when play finally resumed in the rain-delayed second round of play in the 2014 Tortugas Open. Wins by Ellerstina (Facundo Pieres, Gonzalo Pieres Jr., Mariano Aguerre and Nicolas Pieres) and La Dolfina (Adolfo Cambiaso, David Stirling, Pablo MacDonough and Juan Martin Nero) were anticipated and the two highest-rated teams in Open competition didn’t disappoint.

Adolfo-Tortugas-Open-Monday--300x214

Both Adolfo and Facundo made a big splash in their debut appearances in the first leg of Argentina’s Triple Crown of Polo. Facundo scored 13 goals in the Ellerstina win over La Aguada/Las Monjitas (Lucas James, Cristian Laprida, Eduardo Novillo Astrada and Alejandro Novillo Astrada) while Adolfo scored seven times in La Dolfina’s 13-9 win victory over La Aguada (Facundo Sola, Guillermo Caset Jr., Miguel Novillo Astrada and Ignacio Novillo Astrada).

Two first chukker goals from Ellerstina went unanswered in the opening match of the day as a solid defensive effort by the black-shirted team shut out the La Aguada/Las Monjitas attack. After one chukker it was Ellerstina in the lead, 2-0.

Ellerstina added three more goals in the second while allowing a single goal from their opponents. After two periods Ellerstina enjoyed a four goals advantage, 5-1.

La Aguada/Las Monjitas got on track in the third, scoring three times. Ellerstina added two goals and continued to lead, 7-4.

Both teams settled into play in the fourth period, matching one another goal for goal. At the end of the fourth chukker the Ellerstina held at three goals, 9-6.

A fifth chukker rally by La Aguada/Las Monjitas had them outscoring Ellerstina, 3-1. With two periods left in the seven chukker game, Ellerstina was clinging onto a one goal lead, 10-9.

A re-focused Ellerstina foursome took the field in the sixth adding three goals. La Aguada/Las Monjitas managed a single goal and fell behind three goals again, 12-10.

Three more seventh period goals from Ellerstina allowed them to coast to a four goal, 16-12 win.

Six of Facundo’s game-leading 13 goals came on penalty shots. Gonzalito Pieres, Mariano Aguerre and Nico Pieres added single goals for the win.  The La Aguada/Las Monjitas team spread the scoring around with each of the players scoring three goals in the loss.

LA DOLFINA 13, LA AGUADA 9

La Dolfina had already warmed up for the season with a win in the final of the Jockey Club Open and seemed more than prepared to defend their 2013 Tortugas Open title.

In a tentative opening chukker La Dolfina scored twice while holding the La Aguada attack to a single goal. It was La Dolfina with the early lead, 2-1.

La Dolfina added two more goals in the second while shutting out the La Aguada offense. It was La Dolfina with a three goal edge, 4-1.

The La Aguada offense finally found its rhythm in the third, matching La Dolfina goal for goal. La Dolfina left the field after three periods with a 7-4 advantage over La Aguada.

Both defenses buckled down in the fourth. Single goals were managed by each team.  The three goal La Dolfina lead held, 8-5.

La Aguada fought to get back into the game in the fifth, but La Dolfina would have none of it. Each steam scored twice.  La Dolfina remained in control of the game, 10-7.

A La Dolfina goal was all of the offense in sixth period play. La Aguada saw their opportunities disappearing with La Dolfina in possession of the lead, 11-7.

La Aguada scored twice in the seventh with La Dolfina answering each of their scored. La Dolfina rode off the field at the end of the seventh with the 13-9 victory.

Adolfo Cambiaso scored seven times (three times on penalty conversions). Pablo MacDonough scored three goals; Pelon Stirling was credited with two scores, and Nero added a goal for the win.  Nacho Astrada led the La Aguada/Las Monjitas attack with four goals (one on a penalty conversion).  Sapo Caset scored twice from the field and once on a penalty shot.  Facundo added two goals in a losing effort.

Ellerstina y La Dolfina debut y triunfo

30 Sep

Aunque la temporada para Cambiaso y compañía se inició con el Abierto del Jockey Club, la acción de Triple Corona y la defensa de los tres títulos obtenidos en 2013, arrancó este lunes en Pilar, donde también Ellerstina vió su estreno tras diferirse sus encuentros a causa de las lluvias.

En primer turno, por la Zona B, Ellerstina (38 goles) derrotó por 16 a 12 a La Aguada Las Monjitas (33); mientras que a continuación, por la A, el campeón defensor del torneo, La Dolfina (40) le ganó a La Aguada (36), por 13 a 9.

ELLERSTINA 16-12 VS LAS MONJITAS

Ellerstina abrió la jornada en Pilar de la mano de un gran juego colectivo, que le dio sus frutos desde el arranque ya que la efectividad de Facundo Pieres fue clave para terminar las jugadas en los mimbres rivales.

Las Monjitas, que había perdido la bocha en los primeros chukkers, pudo hacerse del ritmo del juego y gracias al aporte goleador de Lucas James y Eduardo Novillo Astrada, logró acortar las diferencias en el tablero a sólo un gol. El polo corrido continuó y Ellerstina volvió a retomar el dominio del juego para que en el final, Facundo Pieres vuelva a sacar una cómoda ventaja y así decretar el triunfo por 16 a 12 en el debut de los “Hombres de Negro” en la Triple Corona.

Ellerstina: Facundo Pieres 10 (13 goles, seis de penal), Gonzalo Pieres (h) 10 (1), Mariano Aguerre 9 (1) y Nicolás Pieres 9 (1). Total: 38.

Las Monjitas: Lucas James 8 (3, dos de penal), Cristian Laprida (h) 8 (3), Eduardo Novillo Astrada (h) 9 (3) y Alejandro Novillo Astrada 8 (3, uno de penal). Total: 33.

Ellerstina: 2-0, 5-1, 7-4, 9-6, 10-9, 13-10 y 16-12.

Jueces: Federico Martelli y Nicolás Scortichini. Árbitro: Martín Goti.

LA DOLFINA 13-9 VS LA AGUADA

La acción continuó con el encuentro protagonizado por el campeón defensor, La Dolfina y La Aguada, en un partido en el que el conjunto de 40 goles pudo dominar el juego y el tanteador desde los primeros minutos.

Abierto de Tortugas: La Dolfina v La Aguada – Los mejores momentos del partido, en fotos
El buen manejo de la bocha del equipo de Cañuelas se pudo disfrutar en los primeros parciales, en los que brillaron los de azul y blanco. La Aguada reaccionó a mediados del partido y le hizo frente al campeón, que se encontró con algunos problemas en la definición de las jugadas. Así, con el empuje de Miguel Novillo y los goles de Sola y Caset, el equipo de Open Door doblegó la defensa rival. Pero el potencial de Cambiaso y compañía bastó para sentenciar el encuentro cuando los últimos minutos corrían en el reloj, para sellar la primera victoria del equipo de La Dolfina en la Triple Corona 2014.

La Dolfina: Adolfo Cambiaso (h) 10 (7, tres de penal), David Stirling (h) 10 (2), Pablo Mac Donough 10 (3) y Juan M. Nero 10 (1). Total: 40.

La Aguada: Facundo Sola 8 (2), Guillermo Caset (h) 9 (3, uno de penal), Miguel Novillo Astrada 10 e Ignacio Novillo Astrada 9 (4, uno de penal). Total: 36.

La Dolfina: 2-1, 4-1, 7-4, 8-5, 10-7, 11-7 y 13-9.

Jueces: Daniel Boudou y Martín Aguerre. Árbitro: Federico Martelli.

Con estos resultados, ambos ganadores definirán las zonas el próximo fin de semana frente a los equipos que quedaron libres en esta fecha, mientras que La Aguada y Las Monjitas, comenzarán su preparación para el Abierto de Hurlingham, que curiosamente disputará sus primeras fechas en las mismas canchas donde fueron eliminados este lunes.

Este sábado se definirá la Zona A de Tortugas entre La Dolfina y Magual, que disputará su primera semifinal de un torneo de Triple Corona; mientras que el domingo, por la Zona B, Ellerstina hará lo propio ante Alegría, en lo que será un nuevo duelo semifinal tras el Abierto Argentino del año pasado.

Dubai and King Power in Final of the Gold Cup

17 Jul

For all the news from international Polo, the blog of Argentina Polo Day we reported the latest news about the sport.

adolfocambiasoendubai-76-2012-1-171G
Dubai and King Power secured a spot in the final of the Gold Cup for the British Open. Both semifinals had the live streaming by PoloLine TV and watched by more than 1700 people worldwide. For those who couldn’t watch the games or simply watch them again, they’re already in PoloLine TV. Plus, the highlights will be online soon, including slow motion and aereal features, and exclusive interviews.

DUBAI 9, HALCYON GALLERY 8

Dubai (Rashid Albwardy, Alastair Paterson, Adolfo Cambiaso and Diego Cavanagh) scored their sixth consecutive win Wednesday afternoon in the 2014 Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup for the British Open, slipping past a determined Halcyon Gallery (George Hanbury, Mark Tomlinson, James Beim and James Harper) foursome, 9-8.

Halcyon Gallery put the pressure on from the opening throw-in, but it was Dubai’s Adolfo Cambiaso who scored the first goal of the game on a penalty shot for a 1-0 lead. Halcyon Gallery had their opportunities with Mark Tomlinson streaking down the field alone only to miss the final shot at goal. James Harper and James Beim missed scoring opportunities later in the chukker with each placing their shots at goal just wide. The first chukker ended with Dubai on top, 1-0.

Halcyon Gallery continued to press in the second chukker, tying the game up at 1-1. Consecutive goals from Cambiaso, however, stretched the Dubai lead to two goals, 3-1. James Harper scored for Halcyon Gallery on a breakaway to end the chukker, 3-2.

Halcyon Gallery got into foul trouble in the third. Needless errors sent Cavanagh to the penalty line where he converted three penalty shots for a 6-2 halftime advantage.

Halcyon Gallery returned to the field in the fourth chukker more determined than ever. Continuing to pressure the Dubai defense, Halcyon Gallery took advantage of Dubai miscues, converting on three penalty shots (two from Beim and one from Tomlinson) while allowing a single goal from the field from Diego Cavanagh. At the end of the period, Halcyon Gallery had cut the Dubai led down to two goals, 7-5.

An energized Halcyon Gallery team took the field in the fifth. Consecutive goals from James Harper and James Beim (his shot at goal was defensively deflected through the goal posts) had it all even at 7-7. Cavanagh took advantage of another Halcyon Gallery foul by converting a short shot through the posts to end the chukker on top, 8-7.

There was no let up from the Halcyon Gallery as they charged into the final chukker of play, but they would find strong opposition from Dubai. A Dubai foul sent Tomlinson to the penalty line where he converted his second 60-yard penalty shot of the day to knot it up at 8-8. Both sides continued to press with a Halcyon Gallery foul in their own goal mouth allowing Cavanagh to convert a short penalty shot for the go-ahead goal, 9-8 with just two minutes left in regulation play. Halcyon Gallery tried to make a run at it but the veteran Dubai side managed to ride out the clock and earn a trip to the British Open finals.

Score Dubai: 1-0, 3-2, 6-2, 7-5, 8-7, 9-8

Scorers
Dubai: Diego Cavanagh 7, Adolfo Cambiaso 2
Halcyon Gallery: Mark Tomlinson 3, James Harper 2, James Beim 1 (one OG by Diego Cavanagh)

KING POWER14, LUCCHESE 10

King Power (Top Srivaddhanaprabha, Pablo Llorente, Gonzalito Pieres and Marcos di Paola) had a rough go of it in the opening chukkers against a talented Lucchese team (John Muse, Lucas James, Nico Pieres and Luke Tomlinson) before salting it away in the second half of the game on their way to a 14-10 victory and a date with Dubai in Sundays final of the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup for the British Open.

Marcos Di Paola scored the first goal of the match in the opening minute of play to give King Power the early edge, 1-0, but Lucchese took advantage of early fouls as Nico Pieres converted penalty shots from 30-yards and 60-yards to make it 2-1, Lucchese. King Power 10-goaler Gonzalito Pieres (older brother of Lucchese’s Nico Pieres) tied it up at the end of the chukker on a penalty conversion of his own, 2-2.

King Power added three more goals in the second chukker while holding Lucchese to a single penalty goal. Gonzalito scored once from the field and once on a penalty shot. Teammate Pablo Llorente added a goal from the field. Lucas converted a penalty shot for Lucchese’s only goal of the chukker, as they trailed 5-3.

Lucchese’s Nico Pieres scored three times in the third (twice on penalty conversions) and Luke Tomlinson added a goal as they leveled the score at 7-7. King Power got singe goals from Gonzalito Pieres and Di Paola.

In choppy play, King Power took control of the game on the strength of three penalty goals by Gonzalito Pieres. Lucchese replied with a penalty goal from Nico Pieres but trailed, 10-8, with two chukkers left to play.

Three more fifth chukker goals from King Power put the nail in the coffin for Lucchese who managed a single penalty goal from Nico Pieres. With one chukker left in regulation time, King Power led, 13-9.

In the final chukker Lucchese fought valiantly to get back into the game, but King Power was ready defensively. Gonzalito scored to give King Power a 14-9 lead, but Lucchese fought on. Nico Pieres converted a 60-yard penalty shot for the final score in the game as King Power registered their sixth straight British Open win and earned a berth in the final against Dubai on Sunday afternoon.

Scorers:
King Power: Gonzalo Pieres Jr. 10, Marcos di Paola 2, Pablo Llorente Jr. 1 (one OG by Luke Tomlinson)
