Final Four Faceoff

Ron Allen | 04/18/17

A double header is slated for Wednesday to determine who advances to this year’s edition of the US Open championship. The opening match will feature four Pieres players. Undefeated Flexjet, with Pieres brothers Gonzalo (9) and Nico (8), going against the defending champion Orchard Hill, with Facundo (10) and his cousin Polito Pieres (10). This is the first time Flexjet has managed to make it to the final four of the Open while Orchard Hill anticipates another shot at the title match on Sunday. 


Valiente will be gunning for the Triple Crown if they can eliminate newcomer Travieso in game two. Adolfo Cambiaso (10) has been very successful this season controlling the game from the back for Valiente. They have already won the Whitney and Gold Cup this season. Alfredo Capella (9) has been the breakout player of the season for Travieso. His team will have to come up with a game plan to stop the world number one player and their explosive offense.
