So, Fede Fernández’s team won and kept the dream alive more than ever, to get the victory in their last game against San Lorenzo, they are in the postseason.

One step away from sleep

The Caballito match started out close with back-and-forth points. Quickly and halfway through the first quarter, Oeste managed to take the lead and gradually, stretched its advantage over Zárate. After those led by Fede Fernández came to the fore, they never left the leader’s position in goals. Led by Valentín Bettiga (15 points, 4 rebounds, 2 assists), those from the Autonomous City were able to reach double digits in the distance to their rival. Ferro was strong with his mid-distance shot and went into the break leading by 10 points.

The second half is for locals. Oé dedicated himself only to extending his advantage against a Zárate that was left without any chance of having the postseason in his first performance in the National League. Emiliano Lezcano (19 points, 5 rebounds, 1 assist, 2 steals) is one of the executioners of Manu Anglese’s team in his scoring. Along with Tucu was Rodrigo Gallegos (14 points, 3 rebounds, 9 assists, 1 steal) and together they achieved a very important victory for Caballito’s team. Ferro took the game by 11 points and is now just one victory away from returning to the playoffs, after failing to make it last season.
