125th Hurlingham Open

Ellerstina, La Dolfina, La Aguada & Las Monjitas through to the Semi Finals

Over the past week, Argentine Triple Crown players have been battling for wins in The 125th Hurlingham Open, the second tournament in the Triple Crown Series, ahead of The Argentine Open.
On Saturday 20 October, Ellerstina continued their tournament domination with a 14-7 win against young guns La Ensenada. The boys in black led from the off, but the 2018 newbies La Ensenada didn’t give up, coming back up the scoreboard from the third chukka onwards. Later in the day, La Aguada defeated Alegría-La Irenita’s brand new 2018 line-up. Alegría-La Irenita began the match with two goals on the board but following some narrow tussles in the second and third chukkas, and an even 5-5 score at half-time, La Aguada raced forward to take the match 12-7.
On Sunday 21 October, The Tortugas Open winning La Dolfina, unsurprisingly, defeated La Cañada by a huge 22-6 final score, securing their spot in the Semi Finals, but in the second match of the day, Las Monjitas took home a 13-8 win against La Albertina Abu Dhabi, who up to this point, had only lost out to La Dolfina.
There is now a week’s delay until the Semi Finals, which will take place between 27 – 28 October, with the Final falling a week after, on Saturday 3 November.
