In the long-awaited return to competition in the First A of the URBA, Pueyrredón and San Albano almost did not take advantage in the afternoon of Benavídez. The defensive solidity in the last minutes and the successes of Mac Call, allowed the local to celebrate a very tight victory by 21 to 20.
The start of the match showed Pueyrredón as the owner of the initiative andFor four minutes he got up on the scoreboard thanks to Juan Cassina’s try, that took advantage of a defensive decoupling of the rival.
With the passing of the minutes the game was paired and it was those from Longchamps who took advantage of Ignacio Gastaldi’s aim at the sticks and Daniel Bravo’s intelligence to manage the scrum base.
In the second half, Saint Alban started more determined and took the lead thanks to a good handrail that ended with the conquest of Lautaro Severina near the right flag. But the Prócer was patient, he took advantage of the penalties that his rival gave him and, when his opponent stalked him, he tackled everything that moved to hold on to victory.
