There is a new final in Palermo in 2018! Team Las Monjitas yesterday defeated the reigning winner of the Hurlingham Open, Ellerstina Johor, in Palermo with 18 to 16 and will compete next weekend in the final of the 125th HSBC Argentine Polo Open against La Dolfina.
In addition to entering the final, Las Monjitas also won the Stella Artois Cup and caught up with the leading team La Dolfina. This is not only the first final for the organisation of Las Monjitas in Palermo, but also for three of their players: Facundo Sola, Guillermo Caset and Santiago Toccalino.
The five-time unbeaten winner of the tournament, La Dolfina Sancor Seguros, had already defeated La Aguada 17-7 on Saturday to reach the final of the 125th HSBC Argentine Polo Open, the world’s most important polo tournament. 10 teams with team handicaps between 28 and 40 goals compete in two zones with the most important players from Argentina, Canada, South Africa and Uruguay.
La Dolfina are therefore preparing to play their 18th final (11 wins and 6 defeats so far) on Saturday, December 15th, with 19 appearances in Palermo.
