The Hurlingham Open Semi Finals Set
La Irenita Clinova vs Cría La Dolfina & La Dolfina Saudi vs Ellerstina Yellow Rose
The 130th Hurlingham Open continued on Wednesday 27 September with the last two Quarter Final matches.
The opening match of the day saw the first outing for La Natividad’s brand new line-up now featuring Pablo Mac Donough and Facundo Pieres, where they defeated La Hache Cría & Polo 25-11. Camilo ‘Jeta’ Castagnola scored an impressive 18 goals, putting him just one goal behind his uncle and tournament record-holder, Adolfo Cambiaso, who scored 19 goals in 2009.
The second match saw Rufino Bensadon substituting for Polito Pieres in the La Hache Polo Team line-up, but this player change did not impact their performance and they ran out the winners, 11-10 against La Ensenada.
These results combined with those from the opening day of the tournament mean that Saturday’s Semi Finals have been set as La Irenita Clinova vs Cría La Dolfina and La Dolfina Saudi vs Ellerstina Yellow Rose.
