For the second day of the second round of the URBA Top 12, ALMOST had a little more rest and beat Los Tilos 23-22 with an agonizing penalty from Martín Roger.
The whole of the Barrio Obrero started a little better and he was the one who opened the account in the hot afternoon of La Plata, with a Bautista Santamarina prison. But the Academy responded a few minutes later, with a try from Juan Torres Obeid after a line play and maul.
The answer was going to come the same way, but this time it was Bautista Gatti who took the ball at the base of the maul and ran over the visiting defense. Nevertheless, ALMOST was the winner at halftime thanks to a penalty from Roger first, and a try on the final play by Joaquín Saenz de Miera.
In the complement, Los Tilos came out with more decision and at 6 minutes he would discount with a try by Nicolás Korenblit near the flag. The homeowners grew up in the game and took control of the game.
ALMOST, who did not have too many chances to bring danger to the local ingoal, transformed Martín de Roger into a figure at his opening. On the 10th he stretched the lead with a penalty at 23rd and, when Los Tilos turned the score around with a try by Tigo Bassagaisteguy, he hit the sticks again to ensure victory.
