The Hurlingham Action Continues

Strong starts for La Dolfina, Ellerstina, La Aguada Las Monjitas and Alegría

Play in the 124th Hurlingham Open is well and truly underway at the AAP grounds in Pilar, Argentina. The second day of matches, on Tuesday 10 October, saw eight teams take to the field, fighting for the coveted trophy and also saw the Hurlingham Open debut of both defending champions Ellerstina and their closest rivals, and Tortugas Open winners, La Dolfina Sancor Insurance. 

Defending champs Ellerstina were the first to take to the field, against La Dolfina Polo Ranch, winning the match by a whopping 19-7. The nine goal handicap difference between the teams was evident from the first chukka even with a strong fight back in the seventh chukka from the La Dolfina Polo Ranch team.
Tortugas Open winners La Dolfina Sancor Insurance were next on the field, against La Albertina Abu Dhabi. The Tortugas Open winners dominated from the very first chukka, but the 32 goal La Albertina were never too far behind. La Dolfina won the match 10-6, a closer score than expected this early on in the tournament. 
Alegría secured their position in the next round with a resounding 18-5 win over La Irenita, 13 of which goals came off the stick of 9 goal Sapo Caset. The last match of the day saw La Aguada Las Monjitas take on Cría Yatay in a close match. The final score of 11-10 to La Aguada Las Monjitas reflected the narrow nature of the match, two chukkas of which ended in draws.

11am: La Aguada Las Monjitas vs La Dolfina Polo Ranch
