Yesterday, on Monday November 24th, two of the matches to define the semi-finalists of the Argentine Polo Open were played. The Argentine Open is one of the most important tournaments worldwide.

During the morning, it all seemed that this day would be suspended due to the heavy rain that was falling over Buenos Aires. But the experts of the Asociación Argentina de Polo inspected the fields and there was no reason to cancel, due to the fact that the pitches were in perfect state.

The day started with a match between La Aguada with Facundo Sola (+8), Guillermo Caset (+9), Miguel Novillo Astrada (+10) and Ignacio Novillo Astrada (+9) against Miramar with Gonzalo Deltour (+7), Valerio Zubiaurre (+7), Ignacio Laprida (+7) and Santiago Toccalino (+7). Both teams had a really good match, but La Aguada, the team of the Novillo Astradas was superior than Miramar in every aspect. During one of the chukkas, unfortunately Facundo Sola suffered a minor injury and had to be replaced by Guille Terrera, that became the star of the match, closing the scoreboard with a great goal that gave a final score of 18-7.

At the end of the day, La Dolfina with Adolfo Cambiaso (+10), Juan Martín Nero (+10), Pablo MacDonough (+10) and the recently recovered David Stirling (+10) showed up in the main field to play against Magual with Alejandro Muzzio (+8), Ignacio Toccalino (+9), Marcos Di Paola (+8) and Jaime García Huidobro (+8). Even though Magual had a great performance, it never was enough against the perfect team of La Dolfina, that maintained a great goal difference all through the match. Finally Stirling scored the final goal, and the final score was 15-3.
