La Dolfina wins Tortugas Open

Adolfo Cambiaso and co beat Ellerstina to win the first tournament of the Argentine Triple Crown

La Dolfina beat defending champions Ellerstina 16-14 at the Tortugas Country Club to win the Tortugas Open on Saturday.

The scores were tied at 13-13 heading into the seventh and final chukka, but the talented 39-goal quartet of Adolfo Cambiaso, David “Pelon” Stirling, Pablo MacDonough and Juan Martin Nero outscored their bitter rivals by three goals to one in that chukka to claim victory.

Star man Cambiaso scored seven of La Dolfina’s goals as they won the first trophy of the Argentine Triple Crown. 

The Triple Crown continues this week with the Hurlingham Open, which gets underway tomorrow.
