The Junior Argentine Open
La Natividad win the title
The Junior Argentine Open came to an end on Monday 30 September at the AAP in Pilar, as La Natividad beat La Dolfina 15-8 to claim the title. It was another title under the belts of the powerful Castagnola brothers, Bartolito and Camilo ‘Jeta’, who have swept the board over recent months. Five teams, of up to 23 goals, competed for the title, with all players 21-years-old or younger.
The Final was a strong, open match, with the teams in close competition throughout. It was the third consecutive year that Bartolito Castagnola has taken home the title, having also won alongside his younger brother in 2018.
Out of the eight players, three have secured major championships over the past six months: the Castagnola brothers having won The King Power Gold Cup for The British Open as well as The President’s Cup, and La Cañada Open winner Rufino. All the others have recently played high goal across the world.
