Carrasco Polo defeated El Trébol by 13 to 8 in the most outstanding match of the fourth date of the Super Uru de Clubes. The horse reached the top of the contest and remains undefeated.
The first half had a team that tried harder and another that knew how to defend itself and be effective at the right time. Those from Paysandú tried to take center stage in the match and put together some good plays that, were it not for inaccuracies in handling, could have given them more points.
With a penalty from Alejo Duran, Trébol took advantage but could not break again a solid defense of Carrasco Polo that was always well planted. For their part, the tricolor did prove to be more effective and in the two opportunities they were able to play in the rival red zone, they came back with points thanks to to the try of captain Santiago Hernández and the aim of Jerónimo Etcheverry with a penalty.
In the plugin, bugs continued to be present on both sides. Carrasco Polo was smarter and tried to play the game on someone else’s land. Trébol, on the other hand, risked more than his rival but could not specify due to the imperfections in the transfer of the ball.
With a lot of grit, the green and white t-shirts discounted thanks to the good push from the maul that ended with the Carlos Arboleya try. Thus, with the result 13 to 8 in favor of the tricolores, those of Paysandú burned the ships but could not reach the victory try. Carrasco Polo closed ranks and relying once again on a granite defense was left with a suffered victory that puts him at the top of the standings.
