Olimpico was the first Interleague finalist

The La Banda team beat Platense in Argentina’s rivalry in the first tournament of the year.

With the group stage of the Interleague tournament closing, Olympic de La Banda and Platense are looking to qualify for the final. Both came in with undefeated records, so they debated head-to-head for first place. The game, which was scrapped, discussed and had some problems (it ended up being played without a main game clock) until the end, ended in the hands of Leo Gutiérrez’s team, winning 77 to 68. In this way, they will wait for the result of group B, based in Corrientes to meet its rival.

Parity is the main star in this match. Both teams gave each other the lead on the scoreboard, but these advantages never mattered. Four points on one side, six on the other side, but it all came back to point after point. It wasn’t until the end of the third quarter that Olympic began to have some light on the scoreboard that he would not relinquish later. He escaped with nine points midway through the final quarter and held that number until the end.

Juan Pablo Arengo

The meeting figures:

Juan Pablo Arengo finished as the top offensive reference for the Bandeño team. The former Regatas contributed 21 points, going 2/8 on triples, 4/9 on doubles and 7/8 from the free throw line. Nicolás Romano, who had a good participation in three games, had a double double, with 12 points and 9 rebounds on his personal scoresheet. Patricio Tabarez and Jony Machuca completed the quartet with 10 points each.
At Platense, Facundo Vázquez finished as the most outstanding scorer. The perimeter player scored 16 points and dished out 3 assists in 35 minutes on the court. Uruguayan Mayora followed him with 13 units. Along with Sebastián Morales (also with 13), they are the only ones to reach double digits.

The meaning of the contest

The grand final is between Olympic de La Banda and the winner of the group played in Corrientes. The appointment will be on Monday, September 25, with a location and time to be determined.
