Copa Cámara de Diputados
Chapaleufú and Pilarchico La Ensenada to play in the Final
Yesterday, Monday 27 November, on ground 2 at the legendary Campo Argentino de Polo in Palermo, the Semi Finals of the Copa Cámara were played.
In the first match, played in the morning, Pilarchico La Ensenada beat La Irenita by 9-8 in a closely fought match, after commanding play from the start of the game. However, in the last chukka a win came extremely close for La Irenita who were only one goal away from evening the scoreboard and taking the match into an extra chukka. Unfortunately for them, it was not to be.
Meanwhile, in the afternoon, Chapaleufú Biopolo beat La Mariana ONA 13-12 in an extremely even duel, which had several lead changes on the scoreboard during the seven chukkas. La Mariana had a better start than ‘Chapa’, leading the scoreboard for several chukkas, but Chapa returned with fervour, levelling the scoreboard. With the scores tied at 12-12 and with little time left until the final bell, Pedro Falabella scored a final goal for Chapa and with it a pass to the Final. Chapaleufú and Pilarchico La Ensenada will face each other in the Final of the tournament this Friday, 1 December, at 5pm on Ground 2 at Palermo. Admission to the Final is free of charge and will be a great spectacle for all visitors.
