After preliminary rounds of play that left both defending champion La Dolfina and Ellerstina with 3-0 records, the two teams faced off in a final for the second time of the season in 2016 Hurlingham Open competition, at the Hurlingham Club.

La Dolfina trailed for most of the game Saturday afternoon in the final of the Hurlingham Open with Ellerstina taking a lead in the second chukker that they would hold up until the final minutes of regulation play, losing to the defending champion on a goal from Adolfo Cambiaso.
Ellerstina scored an impressive 19-11 win over Alegria Sunday afternoon at Argentina’s Hurlingham Club in the second semifinal of the 2015 Hurlingham Open, but the question on most people’s minds is whether they can take that same level of play to the field with them against the defending championship La Dolfina team on Saturday, November 7th.

With all eyes waiting for Friday’s 4pm game that would feature Argentina’s only 40-goal team, La Dolfina polo fans almost overlooked the early game of the day that saw a 31-goal, qualifying Washington team upset a veteran 34-goal La Aguada foursome, 13-12.
