The Bronze Cup is coming to an end! The last game of the regular series for this tournament was hosted at Casa de Campo this past Saturday, the 23rd. There were very intense games; Agualinda scored 10 against La Carbuccia with 7, and Lechuza scored 12 against Los Establos’ 7. As always, it was very entertaining afternoon with the speed and beauty of polo as well as an exciting social scene, and full of kids too!
Two Argentinian teams, Agualinda and Lechuza are the most solid teams of the Bronze Cup. Lechuza’s Victor Vargos was called best player of the tournament. Argentina is on top!
This past Sunday’s games were held in Los Establos and brought victory to Pitirri Potranca with 10 points against 7 for Casa de Campo; and Power Infrastructure with 9 points against Los Samanes’ 7. Casa de Campo made several attempts to get ahead, but was unfortunately unable to do so with Tomás Pieres’ successful counter attacks. Rodrigo Rueda served incredible assistance to his winning team members’ goals and proved to be the MVP.
In Power Infrastructure vs. Los Samanes, Ignacio Laprida and Ignacio Novillo Astrada both played an awesome dual team effort in scoring goals for Power Infrastructure that was too much for Los Samanes to recover from, and led to their fall behind of a 10-6 scoreline.
Lechuza, Agualinda, Los Samanes and Power Infrastructure will go on to play in the semifinal matches, TODAY at Los Establos!
