La Dolfina and Ellerstina win opening matches at Palermo
The Argentine Open got underway this weekend, with wins for La Dolfina, Ellerstina, Pilara and La Aguada
LA DOLFINA SHOWED why they are the tournament favourites when they beat Magual 17-9 in the opening match of the Argentine Open at Palero.
The 40-goal lineup of Adolfo Cambiaso, David “Pelon” Stirling, Pablo MacDonough and Juan Martin Nero, held the lead throughout the match, making a good start in their bid to win their seventh Argentine Open, following their Hurlingham win last week.
Ellerstina also won their first match of the tournament, which is the final leg of the Argentine Triple Crown. Facundo Pieres, Gonzalito Pieres, Nico Pieres and Mariano Aguerre defeated La Aguada-Las Monjitas 12-10, but it was a less convincing victory than many would have expected.
Pilara and La Aguada also won their weekend matches. Pilara narrowly defeated Alegria 13-12 while La Aguada won 12-10 against La Natividad on Sunday.
Play will continue next Saturday with La Dolfina facing Alegria and Pilara playing Magual.
