Pilará Piaget remains perfect
One more victory for Pilará Piaget team over Magual at the 119th Hurlingham Open
Pilará (2-0), the polo team of watchmaker and jeweller Piaget scored a convincing 22-13 win over Magual (0-2) while La Dolfina (2-0) stays perfect in 18-13 win at the expense of winless Alegria (0-2) Friday afternoon in the Hurlingham Open in Buenos Aires. Sebastian Merlos scored twelve goals for Pilará Piaget.
Pilará Piaget jumped out to an early 3-1 lead on its way to a commanding 13-6 halftime lead over an out-gunned Magual lineup as play in the 2012 Hurlingham Open championship got underway after rain delays.
The teams scored two goals apiece in the fifth as Magual seemed to stem the Pilará Piaget surge. Three unanswered goals from Pilará Piaget in the sixth had Magual trailing by ten goals, 18-8 with just two chukkers left in regulation time.
Magual outscored Pilará Piaget 3-2 in the seventh period, 20-11, but the rally was weak and short-lived. Each team added two more goals to their totals in the final chukker as Pilará Piaget rode away with the 22-13 victory.
