Argentine Update

Tortugas Open & Torneo Remonta y Veterinaria

The opening tournament of the 2017 Triple Crown, the Tortugas Open kicked off in Argentina on Tuesday 19 September. In the first match, La Aguada Las Monjitas beat La Irenita 17-8, whilst in the second match, Alegría beat Cría Yatay 16-13.
