Platense closed the year with a win and a third

El Calamar received the Obras Basket in Vicente López for the National League to close the sports year. It was a victory for Platense, which reached eight consecutive wins at home, that is, it did not lose a game when it was the host. Furthermore, by defeating the Rockers, they sit in third place in the tournament. A great joy for Cholo Vázquez who closed his birthday in the best way.

The Squid on the podium

The match started off on the right foot for Núñez’s men, Obras gaining a brief advantage at the start of the match. But quickly and with the help of Facundo Vázquez (17 points, 4 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 steal), the locals reacted. It was a back-and-forth score that ended in a tie at the end of the first ten minutes. The second period was the same, the Rockeros returned to the lead and this time Platense did not allow the tie. He took the lead to enter the break with a seven lead over his rival.

Those led by Cholo Vázquez started to distance themselves from Eric Flor (23 points, 3 rebounds, 3 assists, 2 steals). They reached a maximum of 15 units at the end of the third period. But despite the big advantage, there were ten minutes left, which Obras would make the most of. André Spight (31 points, 2 rebounds, 7 assists, 1 steal) is the architect of the rocker comeback. The men led by Peter Domínguez managed to tie the game at the end, but it was not enough. Facu Vázquez held on determinedly and scored a free kick that gave them a three-point lead to win the match.
